A relaxing getaway for 2019

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to reset the body and mind for the year ahead. Make a start on those New Year’s resolutions by focusing on self-care – which will, undoubtedly, be much needed following the indulgent festive season! We believe that a deep detox is the best way to create a blank slate for your body and mind, allowing you to greet the year ahead with new energy and perspective. With numerous countryside walking routes and a luxury spa nearby, we encourage our guests to make the most of not only the hotel, but the surrounding area.

Perfect for a winter’s break, our Tearoom, cosy log fire and surrounding walking routes combine some of Britain’s most favourite pastimes. Why not escape from the cold and cosy up to our crackling log fire with a quintessential afternoon tea? Featuring delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and sweet cakes – and of course, a warming pot of tea, you’ll enjoy a truly traditional yet unique afternoon treat. Afterwards, take the opportunity to head outside for a brisk outdoor walk in the Helmsley countryside. With many walks available that differ in length and ability, there’s something suitable for everybody. The Cleveland Way is a popular walk that boasts 110 miles in length – one for the avid walkers amongst you! Alternatively, for a shorter stroll, Dalby Forest offers 18 miles of walking trails, and is blessed with 8,000 acres of picturesque woodland.

For the spa lovers amongst you, the Verbena Spa at Feversham Arms welcomes guests from The Black Swan. Just a short walk away, the spa offers a range of health-boosting treatments and facilities. With treatments including a bespoke facial, hot stone massages and detoxifying mud wraps, the expert therapists are dedicated to providing a service that’s specific to each guest’s needs and preferences. Make sure to also try out the unique Heat Experience, which features a cleansing steam room, sauna and unique Monsoon Feature Shower.

In addition to beautiful walks, Helmsley also offers many popular visitor attractions – including the historic Helmsley Castle, National Centre for Birds of Prey and scenic Helmsley Walled Gardens.
