A traditional coaching inn with an award-winning restaurant in the North Yorkshire market town of Helmsley – includes breakfast, dinner allowance and late check-out

  • For an upscale stay in the pretty North Yorkshire market town of Helmsley, The Black Swan Hotel and its collection of Tudor, Georgian, and Elizabethan buildings is ideal. The setting couldn’t be more breathtaking either, where the the North York Moors await: think rolling hills, fragrant pine forests, plentiful wildlife, and glittering coastline.

  • All of the 45 sumptuous and spoiling guestrooms and suites at this characterful property are uniquely-styled. Each has tasteful, chic decor with either muted or bright hues, a mix of classic antiquey and contemporary design features, and comfortable beds dressed with luxe linens.

  • On the wining and dining front, the two AA Rosette-awarded Gallery Restaurant delights foodies with an exciting British menu. Equally appealing are the gorgeous Tearoom for its award-winning afternoon teas, the Cygnet Bar for lagers, real ales, cocktails, and a deep wine list, and the walled garden for al fresco dining in summer.

Good to know

The Classic rooms are accessed by a few flights of stairs and therefore aren’t recommended for less-mobile guests.
