About us

The Black Swan Hotel at Helmsley is a historic inn, turned boutique hotel. Its varied exterior, with its black & white timbered, Elizabethan and Georgian elements, portrays a rich history dating back to the C15th. Right in the heart of one of the North York Moors' prettiest towns, the hotel is smartly appointed, blending antiques with classic contemporary design.

Yorkshire is renowned as being a county which produces some of the finest foods in the UK and nowhere is this recognised more than at Helmsley's Black Swan Hotel. The Gallery, the hotel's 3 AA rosette restaurant, offers menus for dinner which use ingredients sourced from within 30 miles of the hotel wherever possible and change regularly to utilise the best seasonal produce.

Black Swan Tearoom & Patisserie

The Black Swan Tearoom, located in the picturesque market town of Helmsley, is both charming and traditional, and offers a fabulous quintessentially English Afternoon Tea experience.
