Top Dog

Helmsley is a great getaway destination for all kinds of people – but also for their much loved pets! Your four legged friend will be delighted that many of Helmsley’s shops, hotels and eateries are dog friendly, so you don’t need to leave your pooch at home to enjoy a visit to the town.

Crema Coffee House and Porters Coffee Shop will welcome you for a light bite or cuppa – head there for breakfast and if you decide to pick up a paper at Elijah Todds newsagent en-route, Dexter the Dachshund (whose shop it is) will happily share a gravy bone with you.


Plenty of our shops are happy to open their doors/dog flaps to canine customers – even our independent retailer Libby Butler Jewellers welcomes dogs (with well behaved owners!)

With so many beautiful walks in and around the town, you may want to make a weekend of it. The Black Swan Hotel has a dog friendly package available, with everything to make you and your best friend’s stay extra special, including a photography shoot with Anne-Marie King, “The Phodographer”.“


Helmsley Walled Garden and the English Heritage run Helmsley Castle both welcome dogs on leads, and are great places to explore on two and four legs.

So when we mean everyone is guaranteed a warm welcome in Helmsley – we mean it!
