Stay on the Swinton Estate

Stay amid 20,000 acres of the most breath-taking countryside, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales

The Swinton Estate is home to the opulent Swinton Park Hotel, the heart of the estate, sitting majestically surrounded by 200 acres of stunning parkland and gardens and home to fabulous dining experiences in Samuel’s Restaurant and the Terrace Restaurant and Bar.

Also home to the wellness imbibing, Swinton Country Club. A range of self-catering Country Houses and Cottages lie close to Swinton Park; with Swinton Bivouac, a fabulously off-grid glamping experience on the edge of Swinton’s vast moorland.

Swinton Park Hotel

The Swinton Park Hotel is an opulent, Grade II* castle set in 200 acres of stunning gardens and parkland at the heart of the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate.

Owned by the Cunliffe-Lister family since the 1880s, and the ancestral seat of the Earl of Swinton, guests at the hotel enjoy a fabulous, yet informal stately home experience.

Rooms are beautifully furnished with antiques and family portraits, with the warmth and grandeur of a traditional English house.
