Shooting Parties

While the West Country may have some fabulous pheasant shoots, there is no county with more high bird destinations than Yorkshire. Helmsley is lucky enough to sit among some of the best shooting moorland in the UK, and The Black Swan Hotel warmly welcomes guests shooting in the area.

The hotel has three private dining rooms which are ideal for accommodating shooting parties, and lounges which can be privately reserved for pre-dinner drinks with private bars. We also have adequate storage and secure gun cabinets for the guests to store their guns. Dogs are welcome at the hotel and are permitted to stay in the bedrooms at a charge of £10 should you choose to bring them along.

With regards to dining, we are flexible and are happy to discuss your needs and requirements. Early breakfasts can be arranged for those of you needing to leave the hotel early. For those of you staying for multiple nights, we are also happy to offer other dining options such as Pie & Pea suppers and Steak & Chips, to offer a break from our normal dinner menus.

For more information about accommodation for shooting parties, please call our Shoot Co-ordinator, Kimberley Sigsworth on +44 (0)1439 770466 or email
