Win a gourmet stay in Yorkshire

Goldsborough Hall, once home to the Queen’s aunt, Princess Mary, is one of the most private, exclusive and beautiful places to stay in Yorkshire, overlooking 12 acres of historic gardens and tranquil parkland and with fine dining in a two AA-rosette restaurant.

Now you could win a gourmet stay for two there and enjoy two nights in a sumptuous Emperor Suite, full Yorkshire breakfast each morning, the Chef’s 5-course Taster Menu dinner on one evening and a cream tea on arrival.

This hidden gem of a Grade II-listed 17th-century mansion was home to Princess Mary throughout the 1920s and has been lovingly restored to its former glory by the current owners to suit the elegance, indulgence and sheer opulence of a royal residence.

The 17 ensuite guest bedrooms and suites span the upper floor of the main house and the adjoining Dower House, each offering a magical combination of romantic, historical charm and contemporary style, along with fresh flowers and top-of-the range facilities to ensure a luxurious stay.

These include 50-inch high-definition digital plasma TV, free Wi-fi, luxury bathrobes and Molton Brown toiletries, a mini-bar and safe, tea/coffee-making facilities, room service and an evening turndown.

The team of culinary creatives lead the way with an array of stunning dishes in the award-winning Dining Room with the emphasis firmly on fresh, seasonal food sourced locally and making the most of the natural larder provided by the traditional kitchen garden. Goldsborough Hall is perfect for a relaxing stay surrounded by grounds originally landscaped in the style of Capability Brown in the 1750s and earning a coveted spot in The Times' Top Places To Stay With Great Gardens.

Highlights include a copse of five Japanese cherry trees, given to Princess Mary as a wedding gift by the Emperor of Japan; 120ft-long herbaceous borders replanted in a Gertrude-Jekyll style; the quarter-of-a-mile Lime Tree Walk, host to more than 50,000 daffodils in the spring; and an ancient false acacia, a pair of purple-leaved plums and a rare whitebeam, all officially recorded as British Champions by national charity, the Tree Register.
