Goldstone Hall and coronavirus, Sunday 29th March, 2020.

Dear Friends of Goldstone

We are here

John and Sue are here to answer phone calls, emails and keep the place tip top for when we can reopen fully.

Essential/key workers

The hotel is open and we have some essential workers as residents who were isolated prior to the lock down with whom we are practising extreme self-isolation to ensure they can continue their invaluable contribution to the national effort. Do ask if you need to be here in the area, we may and will be pleased to help if we can.

Don’t panic

We have a considerable amount of pre-booked parties, weddings and functions and we are working with all these on an individual basis. Please, if this includes you, call or email us and we will discuss with you. We are dealing with this the booked date sequentially and about 10/12 weeks ahead.

Planning a party

If you are thinking ahead for planning such as weddings, parties and celebrations please contact us. Guests are making future bookings to secure favoured dates. We will discuss the need for subsequent potential flexibility, but this will be an ever-changing picture so we will deal with this individually and personally.


We have always thought that despite email and download that you can’t beat a proper printed brochure with masses of information and photographs showing a myriad of ways to enjoy Goldstone. This is even more useful now. So please email us with your postal address and we will have one in the post and at your home right away. You may not be able to have an engagement party at the moment but you can certainly plan a wonderful wedding day like no other.

Accommodation and Eating out here reservations

Call us, you are better booked and ready with some flex than miss the opportunity to get the dates you wish. We will sort reservations made online but the most specific arrangements will be best made over the phone or by email so we can have full dialogue.


Goldstone and the garden are in wonderful order and the place looks a picture so continue to have look on facebook and we will share the place virtually. We will keep these pages updated and will share as many of the wonders of our garden in Spring as we can.

RHS Partner Garden Opening

While we await reopening have a look on our facebook page and we will keep updating pictures as the garden develops and grows. Not the same, I know, but still worth a look. Do not hesitate with any plant identification or cultivation questions and am sure even if we don’t know the answer we can start a discussion on the subject.  

Everybody keep safe and keep your spirits up.

Any questions, call us 01630 661202

Best wishes,

John, Sue, family and the Goldstone team. x
