Mini-moon with your best friend

The Black Swan in Helmsley have introduced a short break for dog lovers, perfect for your mini-moon

Gone are the days when dogs were resigned to kennels for the holidays. Nowadays many dog lovers wish to spend precious time away with loved ones, including their four-legged friends. The Black Swan, renowned for being dog-friendly, has devised a canine-themed stay, ‘It’s A Dog’s Life’ to keep the whole pack wagging their tails and also provide much needed charitable help for canine cousins too.

There are treats galore for both you and your dog, not least the opportunity to capture those happy moments with the services of award-winning ‘phodographer’, Annemarie King who is passionate about dogs and their welfare(www.thephodographer.co.uk) Annemarie will take a beautiful portrait of your dog, either during your stay or at a later date.

This unique short break costs £219 per couple (+ dog/s) and comprises:

Miniature afternoon tea with a glass of bubbly (human treat) on arrival in one of our lounges or the gardens

A gift ‘Bow-wowcher’ for The Phodographer, entitling your pet pooch to a doggy portrait session in the York area lasting around one and a half hours, editing, polishing and preparing your images for your viewing, and an ordering appointment at the lovely photography studio in Bishopthorpe, York (Worth £45, and valid for 12 months from the date of your stay at the hotel)
