History of the hotel

Visit the Black Swan Hotel in Helmsley, North Yorkshire and you really will feel as if you're part of a long history. The hotel comprises three houses; the black and white Tudor house on the left of the terrace, the Georgian house in the middle, and the Elizabethan building on the right, which stands on the site where an inn is believed to have been situated for many centuries.

The Black Swan Hotel in Yorkshire was in fact always destined to become Helmsley's principal coaching inn when in 1838 it was decided to run a stage coach route linking Leeds and York with Helmsley. Known as The Helmsley Highflyer, the coach called three times a week at the Black Swan Hotel.

The addition of the houses has led to the preservation of the historically important areas of the building and has also done much to enhance the overall character of the Black Swan Hotel.

Dogs Policy

Dogs are charged at £10 per dog, per stay. Dogs are not permitted in the restaurant or tearoom.
