Love is in the air

Helmsley is the ideal place for a romantic getaway. Perfect to get away from it all, spend some quality time together and really unwind, the town has some fantastic hotels and luxury bed and breakfast providers to offer a really special break. Or if you prefer self catering, Honeysuckle Cottage has everything you need for a cosy home-from-home – with none of the DIY jobs waiting to be done!


If you’re heading to the town, here are our top five tips for an extra special romantic break:

Tip 1

Spoil yourselves at the spa at the Feversham Arms Hotel. Relax in the stunning, heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, treat yourselves to a tandem therapy in the couples’ treatment room and feel your stresses evaporate in the Heat Experience, with aromatherapy room, monsoon shower and foot spa.

Tip 2

Enjoy a stroll through the beautiful Walled Gardens, dating back to 1759. At certain times of the year, the gardens erupt into a riot of colours and scents to make an experience for all the senses, set with the beautiful backdrop of Helmsley’s medieval castle. Enjoy coffee and a mouth watering cake at the garden’s famous Vine House Cafe.

Tip 3

Blow away the cobwebs with a walk on the North York Moors National Park. With stunning scenery, amazing wildlife and peace and tranquillity in abundance, you’ll return home feeling like new people.

Tip 4

Treat yourself to the delicious six course tasting menu at the Black Swan Hotel’s Gallery Restaurant, giving you a taste of all the favourites from the a la carte menu. Bring your appetite!

Tip 5

Indulge in a spot of retail therapy. From luxury boutiques and jewellery stores, to books, traditional sweets, antiques, interiors and galleries galore, you’ll find something you’d just love to take home. Don’t forget the delis, chocolate shops and bakeries too for a little taste of Yorkshire to remind you of your weekend away!
