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.

Step outside into the marketplace, and you will find a charming selection of individual boutiques selling gifts, crafts, artwork, country wear and fine foods, including local meats, cheese and liquors.

Recommended by Wallace & Gromit as one of the 'Gromit-friendly places to stay.'
