The Black Swan Hotel

The Black Swan Hotel offers the perfect retreat from the rest of the world. Offering boundless hospitality, home from home country comfort, roaring fires, exceptional cuisine and the lure of a traditional Yorkshire tea room. Situated on the boundary of the stunning North York Moors National Park, the market town of Helmsley is the perfect gateway to all that North Yorkshire has to offer.

The Black Swan Hotel

Established for over 500 years as a fine hostelry, the iconic Black Swan Hotel sits right in the heart of the North Yorkshire’s prettiest market towns, Helmsley. This cosy four-star, 45-bedroom historic property is one of Yorkshire’s finest privately-owned hotels, full of charm and character.

Its exterior has three distinct sections, Elizabethan, Georgian and Tudor; each of which have their own story to share.  The Elizabethan element was once a coaching inn, where the ‘Helmsley Highflyer’ stopped three times per week, en route to Leeds and York – it became fondly known to locals as ‘The Mucky Duck’.

With its centuries old tradition of fine hospitality, it is not surprising that the hotel is especially acclaimed for its fine dining and award-winning tearooms. ‘The Gallery’ restaurant boasts 3 AA rosettes where you can savour delicious seasonal fayre, conjured up by award-winning Head Chef Alan O’Kane.

One of the unique features of the hotel is the charming tearoom which serves the most delectable array of teas, including their own ‘Cygnet’ range of teas, and other refreshments. Traditional English Afternoon Tea, delightful patisserie, as well as light meals and snacks are all winners here and the tearooms have won numerous awards including the ‘Awards of Excellence’ by the illustrious Tea Guild for the years 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013, in 2010 it won the Top National Accolade of ‘Top Tea Place’.

To the rear of the hotel is a pretty quintessential English walled garden which tiers away from the property with views of the adjoining village church, a wonderful asset during the warmer summer months.
