The White Swan Inn


If you’re dreaming of a traditional, charmed Christmas with cosy surroundings and open log fires then you need look no further.

Nothing beats spending Christmas day in the family home enjoying the company of your loved ones – except for spending it with us.

How great would it be to enjoy your Christmas without thinking about what to eat, how much to buy, when will the shops be open, will I run out of sprouts?

Christmas at The White Swan is like everything else we do; hassle free with that relaxed homely feel. Curl up in front of cosy log fires, spend lazy days reading the paper and explore the North Yorkshire countryside that surrounds us.

Christmas Eve

Arriving on Christmas Eve afternoon you will be greeted with tea, coffee, scones, jam & cream and traditional fruit cake with Wensleydale in The Bothy, where you’ll be warmed by the crackling wood burning stove. There are sofas to curl up on, lots of magazines, newspapers and an honesty bar if you fancy a Christmas tipple – just make yourself at home and relax knowing everything is taken care of.

Champagne & Canapés in the cosy bar and snug will get the evening off to a flying start then dinner is served in the restaurant.

After dinner either head to midnight mass by candlelight at St.Peter and St.Pauls Church rounding off the night with hot chocolate and Yorkshire Parkin in front of the fire or stay put and enjoy a nightcap before bed … and you might just hear the sound of distant sleigh bells!

Christmas Day

Stay tucked up in bed with a continental breakfast or come to the restaurant for a leisurely traditional ‘Yorkshire’ breakfast. Spend the day as you like. If you’re feeling energetic why not take a stroll round Pickering or a more energetic moorland stomp and work up an appetite for your sumptuous Christmas feast. Sink into a sofa for the afternoon and enjoy the laid back atmosphere.

In the evening graze on a really tasty buffet supper, which will include the best of local seasonal produce available, there will be a festive quiz in The Bothy or you can jut curl up and spend the evening as you please.

Boxing Day

Boxing Day begins with breakfast in the restaurant then spend the day doing exactly what you want to. You could wrap up warm and blow those cobwebs away – we can point you in the direction of the Moors to enjoy some magnificent scenery, maybe to the coast for a bracing walk on the beach or explore the cobbled streets of Whitby but the local hunt meet is perhaps the most traditional spectacle. Alternatively, cosy up in The Bothy with a book and good bottle of wine before getting ready for supper in the restaurant.

Friday 27th December

Enjoy breakfast before you leave us feeling refreshed, relaxed and with contented memories of Christmas at The White Swan Inn … and if you find it a wrench to leave after such a relaxing break why not extend your stay a night or two more!

We look forward to welcoming you and wishing you the very best compliments of the season.
