About this property

Dog-friendly The Black Swan in Yorkshire is a four-star boutique hotel set on the boundary of the stunning North York Moors National Park – a doggie’s paradise! Dating back five centuries, this dog-friendly hotel offers boundless hospitality for you and your pet, creature comforts, roaring fires and award-winning cuisine. A perfect base for those wishing to explore North Yorkshire, your canine companion will love rambling along the local routes or – if they’re feeling more adventurous – the wild Yorkshire moors! This is the perfect destination to unwind with your best friend by your side.

Dine with Your Dog

Yorkshire is renowned for producing delicious food and The Black Swan is no exception! Boasting a 3AA rosette restaurant, your taste buds will be tingling after you’ve sampled the hotel’s delightful seasonal dishes. All the produce and ingredients are sourced within 30 miles of the hotel! Four-legged friends can dine with you in the resident lounge and bar area and will receive water and a biscuit – make sure you arrange before you go. Or if Fido prefers to relax, they can stay in your room whilst you dine in the restaurant. If you fancy venturing out for food, there are lots of dog-friendly pubs, cafés and tearooms in Helmsley.

Bow wow factor

Has to be the super friendly staff – they love pets here! All furry guests will find bowls, blankets and treats waiting for them in the bedroom.
