A luxury castle hotel in the Yorkshire Dales, with fine dining, cookery school, country club and spa and extensive grounds.
Owned by the Cunliffe-Lister family since the 1880s, and the ancestral seat of the Earl of Swinton, guests at the hotel enjoy an authentic stately home experience. Rooms are furnished with antiques and family portraits, with the warmth and grandeur of a traditional English house.
There is a sense throughout the castle of it being more of a lavish country home than a hotel, with individually designed bedrooms, each with generously sized bathrooms and exceptional views.
Guests particularly enjoy the relaxed environment, and with the two hundred acres of parkland surrounding the hotel, its a perfect romantic retreat.
Food plays an important role at the hotel – with our four-acre kitchen garden, award-winning restaurants and cookery school.
Swinton Hotel’s commitment is to the reduction of carbon emissions and the use of environmental power sources.
Following the restoration of the walled garden and the installation of a wood-chip boiler and an eco-friendly laundry, the hotel’s achievement has been recognised at a national level.
