First Class At The Feversham Arms

View from room - Deluxe Suite
Sat in the picturesque market town of Helmsley, North Yorkshire, lies a hidden gem of a hotel that boasts charm, style and oodles of luxury all in one. This is the Feversham Arms. Helmsley, the charming little town, sat at the tip of the North Yorkshire Moors, has everything you would expect from a quaint Yorkshire town; church bells ringing, meandering little streams, wide open fields, appealing coffee shops and little vintage stores. The Feversham Arms definitely brings a streak of glamour to the unassuming countryside. The Verbena Spa is attached to the hotel, and the delightful Weathervane Restaurant, all drenched in effortless sophistication. Elegant decor, and superb facilities that visitors of any age can enjoy, this is the perfect weekend getaway.

The history of the building in itself is seeped in history, with the orginial building dating back to 19th century when it was an old Coaching Inn and today, perfectly restored, stylish edge, whilst still retaining the character and charm of the old traditional building it once was.

The Room

Stylish and welcoming, the Deluxe Suite overlooked the pool, which made me feel like I had stepped straight into summer, and naturally my eyes deviated towards the inviting Jacuzzi sat prettily in the centre of dangling fairy lights. So magical! The suite included a cosy living area, suited nicely to those travelling in groups, who feel like a relaxing social evening with a glass of Prosecco at the ready! There was a free-standing woodburner, a particular favourite; exuding warmth, it was so cosy you felt you did not need to venture out into the cold January air. Plenty of big perky pillows and cushions, a home away from home, but better! Big comfortable bed, which uttered a silent beckoning, and from the bed, you could glance out onto the water outside. I would highly recommend the rooms with a pool view!

The Restaurant 

The award-winning Weathervane restaurant has 5 star accolaide and rightly so, a sense of true culinary art and taste is the main focus, with each dish carefully crafted to create explosive unique tastes, and creating perfectly designed dishes, that any foodie would take pleasure in. Gentle on the palatte and stomach alike, there is a dish to cater to any taste, and the restaurant has a calm, quiet ambience, which makes you feel incredibly welcome. I opted for a vegetarian option, deliciously fulfilling, with a side of tenderstem broccoli. There is an A La Carte menu, Tasting Menu and the Market Menu, which our dishes were from. Even down to the bread rolls, that were baked fresh with champagne flour, huge attention to detail in the restaurant, and a range of sumptuous desserts, which could easily stand up to any swanky 5 star restaurant in London.

Great hosts, Laura and Neil and delicious Cheese Platter
A huge thank you to the lovely Laura and Neil, who very graciously allowed me to take photos of them, by the delectable cheese table! So incredbly hospitable, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, which is such a good quality in hotel staff, when you want to feel that extra little bit special and well-treated, I very much did! Two huge thumbs up to the staff in the Weathervane!

The Spa & Facilities

The Verbena spa was a delight; a lavish treat, and it was a rare indulgement for me; but a very welcomed one! The Heat Experience, ultra invigorating, starting in the Aromatherapy room, which smells like heaven, a nice ease into the heat, before spending time in the steam room, with a delicate salt mist which at first feels a little strange, almost suffocating but be sure to wait it out a few minutes, your body soon adjusts and you can feel the salt mist cleansing your airway and skin alike. The Verbena Spa is complete with a little place to eat, drink, relax, chat, and 6 treatment rooms for the spa essentials. Of course no spa is complete without a Jacuzzi. At night, a perfectly pretty, magical experience, laying carefree under the stars, immersed in gorgeous hot water with that delicate January breeze on your face! The swimming pool is also outdoors, a few lengths first thing on a morning outdoors is such an energising start to the day before your morning coffee.
