Spoilt for Choice

Fancy escaping from the stresses of everyday life? Our dedicated team at the Black Swan are passionate about giving our guests the ultimate relaxing getaway. Nestled in the tranquil North York Moors, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by an abundance of nature and greenery that make this area perfect for a crisp autumn stroll. The interiors of the Black Swan reflect the surrounding countryside, with country-themed décor and furnishings dotted from room to room. This autumn, we’re offering our guests a special treat – the recipe for a full body detox that will rejuvenate the body and mind.

What better way to welcome in the colder months than treat yourself to an immune-boosting spa break? Join us any day from Sunday to Thursday for a unique break away from the working week. On arrival at the Black Swan, you can grab your favourite drink from the bar and relax in our cosy lounge before venturing over to our sister hotel, the Feversham Arms – just a 3-minute walk away. Here, you’ll find the Verbena Spa, in which the trained therapists will give you and your partner a sensational 30-minute treatment – and you’ll be drifted away into a true oasis of tranquillity. After your treatment, you’ll have 3 hours’ use of the Verbena Spa facilities. Whether you try out the unique monsoon feature shower, sit back in the bubbly outdoor jacuzzi or simply detox in the saunarium or steam room, you’ll leave feeling truly revitalised.

After a relaxing spa day, you’ll then return to the Black Swan for an overnight stay. You’ll have the chance to stay in one of our luxurious bedrooms, which further enhance the beauty of the surrounding countryside with their seasonal colours. Combining cosiness with style, our rooms are the perfect haven to return to after a day of pampering.

To end your stay in the best way possible, you’ll be treated to a hearty full English breakfast in the morning – with all the trimmings!

We’d love for you to join us on this special offering. To find out more about booking, please see here.

Indulge in an afternoon tea at Black Swan

January is a difficult month for many – with the hype of Christmas becoming a distant memory and the dark evenings taking their toll. At The Black Swan, we’re bringing a little joy to the winter months by introducing an exclusive offer. Between Monday and Thursday until March, all guests can enjoy two afternoon teas for the price of one.

A true British delicacy, the afternoon tea is everyone’s guilty pleasure. With a selection of indulgent treats to tuck in to, there’s little more comforting than treating yourself to a traditional feast in a country house hotel. Our afternoon tea includes delicate finger sandwiches, warm homemade scones with jam and cream, a selection of sweet cakes – and, of course, a fresh pot of tea or coffee.

You’ll enjoy your afternoon tea in our quintessentially British tearoom. Once you’re settled in, we’ll serve a range of brasserie-style sweet and savoury treats – and you’ll have a wide array of teas to choose from, with over 20 different types on our menu. Our teas range from our very own Black Swan blend to a selection of Chinese teas, white teas and Oolong teas. Alternatively, those looking for a little extra indulgence can opt for a sweet hot chocolate! If you’re celebrating a special occasion, why not upgrade and surprise your loved one with a bottle of bubbly? If you’d like to discover our picturesque gardens, just ask our team, and you’ll be able to enjoy your feast in our outdoor dining area.

Why not spend the rest of the day making the most of the surrounding area? Boasting beautiful countryside views, the surrounding town of Helmsley is perfect for a winter stroll, with an array of boutique shops to discover. Alternatively, for a day of extra pampering, head down the road to discover the Verbena Spa at Feversham Arms and lose yourself in the relaxing spa facilities.

At The Black Swan, we’re all about bringing a little cheer to our guests – and ensuring that they have an unforgettable experience. To find out more about our afternoon tea offer and discover how you can make the most of your time with us, please visit our website.
