night exteriors 6(1)

Foodies will be ‘Spoilt for Choice’ with the latest offer of two tempting gourmet stays at this cosy Helmsley hideaway; a choice of one or two nights, each created to showcase the delicious dining for which this well-loved hotel is renowned.

Day One welcomes you in style with a glass of Rosé Taittinger Champagne, accompanied by afternoon tea, served from the hotel’s tearooms, voted for many years as one of the finest in England.

Dinner in the 3AA rosette restaurant on the first evening will give diners an insight into the mouth-watering, modern British cuisine prepared by Head Chef, Patrick Bardoulet, using the finest produce from North Yorkshire’s fields, rivers, sea and sky.

Those staying on for the optional second night will sample the same inspired cuisine, this time taken to a new level of creativity in Chef’s Signature 8-course tasting menu, a menu exclusively available during this special stay, and changed according to the season and hunt for the only the very best ingredients available locally at that time.

Throughout your accommodation will be in a comfortable and individually-styled Classic bedroom, with full Yorkshire breakfast served each morning.


Pricing for the ‘Spoilt for Choice’ package is:

One Night Stay @ £235 and Two Nights Stay @ £450 (based upon two sharing a double or twin Classic bedroom. Room upgrades are available at a reduced rate of £20 per room per night, usually priced at £45.)

The hotel’s 3AA restaurant, ‘The Gallery’ is a superb setting to enjoy the sensory pleasures of Patrick’s inspirational menus; as it has a dual functionality, being an art gallery as well as a restaurant. Diners enjoy the ambience of the stylish modern décor and starlit ceiling, highlighted with original works of art. During the day, the restaurant is full of natural light and also enjoys view of the pretty walled gardens, its verdant shades perfectly complementing the surroundings.

The iconic Black Swan stands proudly at the head of Helmsley’s market place and has been enjoyed its reputation as a place with a warm welcome and fine hospitality for well over 500 years now ~ a trend which is set to continue. The hotel is equally suited to walkers, lovers, history buffs and gourmands, with its superb location on the edge of the North York Moors.
