A delightful stay at a 300-year-old inn with restaurant and coffee shop in the pretty market town of Helmsley, by the North York Moors National Park

Bringing a touch of culinary glamour to the rather adorable market town of Helmsley, this charming inn on the edge of the North York Moors National Park has enjoyed a fascinating history since first opening as a hotel in 1959. For starters, it’s actually two separate buildings - a larger residence once owned by the Duncombe Park Estate, and a smaller timber-framed structure whose eastern wall is reputed to come from the nearby 900-year-old Norman castle.

Owned by the Coaching Inn Group since 2015, the inn has 25 individually designed guest rooms with a pleasing mix of pretty country stripes, plaids and florals, statement wallpaper, and exposed beams in some rooms. On the dining front, the flagship Atrium Restaurant presents traditional and hearty British fare with a nod to all things local - the full English breakfasts are definitely worth getting out of bed for.

Equally impressive is the Feversham Bar and Coffee Lounge for anytime chilling, and the homely Pickwick Bar for cosying up in front of the real-wood fire with any number of lagers, craft beers, ciders, bitters, or stouts - many of which are from nearby Yorkshire-based breweries. The Feathers Hotel scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know

Please note that due to the age of the building and its listed status, there is no lift. Should you require a ground-floor room, please mention this to the reception staff on check-in and they will try to accommodate you.


Spread across two floors, the 25 individually designed guest rooms assure a pleasing mix of country decor in stripes, plaids and florals, feature wallpaper, and exposed beams in some rooms. Classic rooms have a comfy double bed for a great night’s sleep, flatscreen TV with Freeview channels, tea and coffee facilities, and an iron and ironing board.

The en-suite bathroom has a bathtub or shower, fluffy white towels, and complimentary amenities. Please note that due to

Open daily from 12-8.30pm (the Sunday carvery is from 12-4.30pm), the flagship Atrium Restaurant seals the deal for discerning foodies. Expect hearty traditional British fare made with locally sourced ingredients - think beer-battered fish and chips with mushy peas, tartare sauce, and seared lemon, pan-fried chicken breast with crushed thyme and garlic roasted potatoes, and classic sausage and mash with onion gravy.

Breakfast is served here daily from 8-10am and includes a full English with all the trimmings (bacon, sausage, grilled tomato, flat mushroom, black pudding, baked beans, choice of eggs) or a continental option with Danish pastries, fresh fruit, yoghurts, and a selection of cereals or muesli.

Equally appealing is the Feversham Bar & Coffee Lounge for all-day chilling, and the Pickwick Bar for cosying up by the fire with a lager, ale, craft beer, cider, bitter, or stout. The hotel also serves traditionally brewed local beer brands, including Blacksheep Best Bitter and Copper Dragon Golden. Room service is available daily from 11.30am until 9pm (a tray charge applies).


You’ll be staying in Helmsley, the only market town in the North York Moors National Park. Must-dos include pottering around the town to browse the antique shops and one-off boutiques, visiting the ruins of 12th-century Helmsley Castle 10 minutes away, chilling out in the gorgeous Helmsley Walled Garden that’s been restored to its Victorian splendour, and riding the North York Moors Steam Railway - it doubled as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter movies.

Further thrills within driving distance include the Gothic seaside town of Whitby, the charming little village of Hutton-le-Hole, and the cities of York and Leeds.
