Swinton Estate is one of the largest privately owned estates in England, situated in North Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Dales.
Comprising 20,000 acres, about two thirds of the land is forestry and farmland, and one third open moorland.
The Estate owns upwards of 90 properties situated both within the nearby market town of Masham and the surrounding countryside and borders the Yorkshire Dales National Park and falls within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Swinton Estate is a desirable place to live, stay and visit and includes: Swinton Park Hotel, Swinton Cookery School, Swinton Bivouac glamping campsite and café, and Swinton Country Club.
Our natural capital is a finite resource. With 7,000 acres of open moorland and 1,700 acres of woodland, we are responsible for protecting and managing a huge swathe of wild open country. We are also actively engaged in protecting habitats to provide better breeding habitats for some of our rarest species.
The Swinton Foundation is a charitable trust that supports charities, artists, entrepreneurs and communities in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area, helping regenerate the rural landscape and with the Swinton Estate providing a base as a catalyst for further enterprise and development.
Across the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate we have a myriad of activities to enhance your visit or stay…
