Reignite the flame with a romantic break in Helmsley

Helmsley, Yorkshire

For a National Park town known historically for its castle and market, Helmsley these days is more about makeovers, macchiatos and boutique beds.

It’s still as attractive as ever, from handsome market square to Rievaulx Abbey ruins a few miles away, and makes a great base for a romantic weekend away.

Classy delis provide gourmet picnic fixings, and if your wardrobe isn’t up to scratch you don’t have to look far to find country casuals and fancy wellies.

Treat your love to a fresh fruit frangipane from Cinnamon Twist, the artisan bakery, or drop into the Black Swan Tearoom for afternoon tea served with a glass of fizz.

There's rooms at the Black Swan (not to mention a secret walled garden) and more boutique style round the corner at the Feversham Arms, whose sumptuous Verbena Spa puts the zip back into any relationship.
