A wonderfully spoiling hotel with all the advantages of being in a town, plus stunning countryside on the doorstep. Situated next to the church in the picturesque market town of Helmsley, this former coaching inn, built in lovely old York stone, makes for an elegant yet laid-back bolthole, with chic contemporary interiors, the glossy Verbena Spa (it has an aromatherapy room, outdoor Jacuzzi and heated outdoor pool, steam and sauna) and dedicated staff. New head chef Jon Appleby is in charge of the food, which is served in the airy restaurant, The Weathervane, and centres around British flavours and using ingredients from North Yorkshire’s larder (the entire menu is seasonal and sourced within 30 miles) – think dishes such as oven-baked North Sea halibut and spring lamb. Al fresco dining, afternoon tea and a lunch menu are available, too. Some of the 33 rooms and suites have recently been refurbished; all have the little extras in place, from duck down duvets (unless you prefer sheets and blankets) to huge soft towels.

Doubles from £140
