Eggscellent Easter

With the spring equinox taking place this week and the clocks going forward over the weekend, here at the Feversham Arms Hotel, we’re hoping this has put an end to winter and the promise of spring has finally sprung!

Of course, with spring comes Easter and the four-day Bank Holiday weekend! After battling the Beast from the East (twice), we think it’s fair to say a long weekend spent with loved ones and friends is just what we all need to blow away the cobwebs.

From our peaceful little corner of Yorkshire here in Helmsley, we’re in the perfect location to offer a truly relaxing break to help you unwind and recuperate.

Whether you’re looking to indulge in a treatment or two in the Verbena Spa, or up for exploring the local area, there’s plenty to see and do to ensure you have a ‘cracking’ weekend.

During the weekend, the North York Moors National Park will be hosting Easter Egg Hunts from Friday, 30th March to Monday, 2nd April, but will you find the Easter bunny’s traditional eggs or the lesser spotted Wish Dragon’s eggs? The event takes place between 11am and 4pm each day.

Elsewhere, the Helmsley Walled Garden is hosting its first ever baking event, with its Kids’ Easter Baking Event, hosted by Bake Happy Ltd, on Saturday, 31st March. From bunny pizzas to cupcakes, the kids will be lining up for their place on the Great British Bake Off before you know it. Booking enquiries can be made by email: or by calling 07779 340799.

Alternatively, why not explore the beautiful Helmsley Castle or the impressive ruins of Rievaulx Abbey?

And after a busy weekend, or just as an Easter Sunday treat, why not sit down to enjoy two or three courses of our delicious Sunday lunch? From ham hock to roast sirloin of beef or skrei cod, to a classic apple crumble, there’s sure to be something to tickle every tastebud.
