Breakfast Award

The Black Swan, run by the Banks family, is set amidst the stunning scenery of the North York Moors National Park, and parts of the building date back to the 16th century. The well-appointed, very comfortable and stylish bedrooms provide the perfect luxury getaway; some are on the ground floor overlooking the kitchen garden, others are in the Georgian House and feature both baths and wet-room showers. These lovely bedrooms, welcoming open fires and a traditional bar all combine with the outstanding, award-winning food of Tommy Banks to make this a ‘real little gem’ of a property.
