Places to gather

On the Swinton Estate, we understand that business meetings and events take many forms. From small, ‘blue-sky thinking’ groups and team get-togethers; through to year-end meetings, budget planning, Annual General Meetings, board meetings conferences or team building events.

We are very happy to facilitate any meeting across any venue on the Swinton Estate – from moorland Bothy, parkland Deer House, contemporary Arnagill Room, Tipi, Spa Garden, private island Lake House; through to more traditional environments of the opulent Library or Panelled Room at Swinton Park – and anywhere in between!
