    We have visited the Black Swan in Helmsley previously and were excited to return and experience another culinary journey and a restful stay in the hotel. The hotel comprises of three houses, there is the black and white house with its striking black timber framing on the right, a Georgian house in the middle, and the main Elizabethan building to the left of these two buildings.

    This time our room was located within the original hotel building. It had plenty of character as you would expect and you can just feel its a historic building as soon as you enter, Im sure there are some secrets being kept between the walls. The creaky staircase and low ceilings got us right in the mood to experience an authentic night in the pub, these are touches that just cant be matched in modern establishments and should be noted.

    The hotel is set right in the centre of Helmsley and overlooks the village square which is also oozing with charm and character. Helmsley is a quaint little market town, and while there is plenty to do its a place which I find very relaxing.

    Staying at the Black Swan is always a joy.

    Within the hotel, you have plenty of reasons not to step outside the front door. Namely, the Cygnet Bar which is the perfect place to relax with a stiff drink or enjoy a sociable evening with friends. The Gallery Restaurant, which offers a menu that deserves to be explored, and of course, the Black Swan are renowned for their Afternoon Tea service.

    Helmsley is a beautiful part of the country and staying at the Black Swan is the perfect choice if youre visiting this part of the country. We always enjoy staying in hotels steeped in history, there are always lots of talking points and fond memories to come away with. Staying at the Black Swan is always a joy, their Afternoon Tea is a must experience, and were sure youll leave with a smile on your face.
