The Black Swan Hotel in Helmsley is a beautiful 15th century property which offers a perfect combination of traditional charm and luxurious escapism, with its own award-winning restaurant and tearoom providing the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway. Right in the heart of one of the North York Moors’ prettiest market towns, the hotel is smartly appointed, blending antiques with classic contemporary design creating the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. With views of the bustling square in the oldest part of the hotel or in the lush garden wing, every one of the 45 rooms is sumptuously furnished, with bathtubs and Molton Brown toiletries in the bathrooms. Yorkshire is renowned as being a county which produces some of the finest foods in the UK and there’s ample chance to sample it here. The acclaimed 3 AA rosette Gallery 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.

Ten Great British Touring Hotels by Adrian Mourby

"One of the most beautiful drives in Britain is across the North York Moors from Whitby or Guisborough and down into the Vale of Pickering. This used to be known as “Herriot Country” after the author of All Creatures Great And Small. Once in the Vale itself, head to Helmsley, a charming market town whose history goes back to Anglo Saxon times and which was, after 1066, part of a royal hunting park given by William the Conqueror to his half-brother. The Black Swan Hotel dates back to Elizabethan times behind its Georgian facade but the presence of a 1930s-style cocktail bar is evidence of its popularity during the days when it was glamorous to motor round the north of England. Suitably refreshed with a full Yorkshire breakfast, head on to Thirsk the next day to visit 23 Kirkgate, which was the home of the veterinary surgeon and author James Herriot and is now a museum dedicated to his life and works."

10 Fabulous Hotel Deals for This Winter by Dinah Hatch

"Whether you are looking down over the pretty walled gardens of this 15th century coach house turned luxury hotel or onto the bustling market square of Helmsley, one of the prettiest villages in the North York Moors, the views from The Black Swan are pretty special. Another reason to check into this black-and-white timbered historic little hostelry is its excellent tearoom which has won awards for its typical English afternoon tea and acts as a hub for locals who meet for a chat and a pick me up. The hotel’s restaurant has also collected a following for its menus offering fresh local dishes. Outside the hotel, browse the second hand book shops and boutiques in the village or head out to the brooding dramatic ruins of Helmsley Castle. I like their Great Yorkshire Escape offer running from now until the end of November, where you’ll pay £199 per couple for a glass of champers on arrival and a miniature strawberry afternoon tea served in the lounge or garden, a six-course dinner in the restaurant, accommodation in a Classic bedroom and full english the next day."

Ten of the Best Hotels in North Yorkshire by Adrian Mourby

"Helmsley is one of the North Yorks Moors’ prettiest and oldest market towns. After the Norman Conquest, William the Conqueror gave it as booty to his half-brother the Count of Mortain. The historic Black Swan coaching inn has a Georgian facade, Elizabethan timbers and a new 1930s-style cocktail bar. Forty-five rooms have been carved out of every available space with those overlooking the gardens at the rear particularly popular."
