Explore a Secret Garden in Helmsley

Set in the heart of the picturesque Yorkshire Moors, the Black Swan is situated near the Helmsley Walled Gardens, which have been beautifully crafted to provide a blissful experience for visitors. A historic site with a cottage-like feel, the gardens appeal to a wide range of visitors; from those who need a break away from city life, to those who feel passionate about countryside living. We believe that not only should our visitors enjoy the facilities on offer, but also have the chance to take a peaceful and relaxing stroll in a place that they can unwind.

This is where the Secret Garden offer comes into play. You and a loved one can enjoy an overnight stay alongside a visit to the Walled Gardens, which reflect the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Why not make the most out of the summer season and treat a loved one? It’s the perfect opportunity to get away from the stress of everyday life and enjoy the warm weather.

With five acres of stunning countryside and plenty to enjoy, you can take a long stroll around the gardens, visit the Orchard which features an array of Yorkshire apple varieties or simply relax in The Vine House café beneath the Victorian vine collection. Whatever you choose to do, you will always be surrounded by brightly coloured flowers and greenery.
When walking around the Walled Gardens, you can also expect to see greenhouses, fresh produce being grown, fruit trees and old-fashioned cottage flowers to reflect the cottage style.

The luxury is extended overnight; the offer includes a one night stay in one of our independently decorated classic double bedrooms. With partial garden views and seasonal themes, your bedroom will be the perfect place to wind down after a day exploring the Walled Gardens. In the morning, you will also be treated to a full Yorkshire breakfast to complete your Yorkshire experience.

This quintessentially English retreat wouldn’t be complete without nibbles and a cup of tea. For extra indulgence, you can enjoy an afternoon tea for two in our garden at the back of the Black Swan. With dainty finger sandwiches, fresh scones and delicious cakes based on traditional flavours, and finished with a cup of tea, this experience is nothing short of heavenly.

With all of Britain’s favourites crammed in to one package, could you wish for a better way to spend your summer? Treat yourself and come to explore this hidden treasure in the heart of Yorkshire. For more information about booking, click here.
