Awash with history dating back to Georgian and Elizabethan times, the Black Swan in Helmsley once enjoyed life as a traditional coaching inn. Throughout the years, new houses have been built alongside the main building.
Comfortably nestled within the beautiful market town of Helmsley in North Yorkshire, the Black Swan is a popular retreat for locals and visitors who come to explore the area. With dramatic countryside and charming shops right on the doorstep, this is the perfect place to stay for outdoor lovers and foodies. Owing to the sprawling landscapes, the owners understand that guests may want to bring their four legged friends along. The hotel is pet friendly and really aims to make them feel at home.
The interior of the hotel is equally as enchanting as its historic façade. Having undergone a recent refurbishment, the rooms are immaculate and elegant, combining country chic with more contemporary boutique design. Rooms are spacious, fresh and inviting, carefully complementing the traditional features of the hotel.
The Black Swan in Helmsley has gained itself an enviable reputation for its 3 AA rosette dining. Using the finest local ingredients, the Chef lures guests with his culinary creations. There is nothing more perfect than relaxing with a few drinks and tucking into award winning dishes. The atmosphere is lively yet laid back, and the hospitality is as impressive as the food itself. The hotel also boasts an award winning tea room, opened by Marco Pierre White, where guests can indulge in traditional afternoon tea. The hotel itself has 4 AA stars and also lays claim to a long string of awards for its food, teas and weddings.
