The Feversham Arms Hotel has long been on my ‘must visit’ list. Anywhere that has an outdoor pool, in Yorkshire, has me intrigued!
Though I’m sure this is THE place in Summer (outdoor dining and poolside drinks), it was on a slightly fresher, but beautiful Autumn day when we went for a self-invited visit.
Quite tucked away off the main through-road, the hotel will appeal to those wanting a country retreat in unspoiled setting. Helmsley is quaint, charming and naturally, restful.
Thirty-three bedrooms and the Verbena Spa make it a great place to retreat for those looking to go away without anything too taxing on the agenda. Day packages at the spa will also appeal to ladies seeking a luxury hang-out.
Six individual treatment rooms and one double, with plenty of softly-lit space for relaxing on comfy sofas is going to appeal in the colder months. The outdoor space… speaks for itself!
We ate in the Weathervane restaurant. Though the food was excellent, there was not enough on the plate for either of us and a tad pricey at that, so a meal wouldn’t be a reason we’d return. That said, the outdoor space is such a delight that I can absolutely see us returning in the Summer months for a glass of wine and perhaps a few nibbles on the terrace…
