A luxury castle hotel in the Yorkshire Dales, with fine dining, cookery school, 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 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 200 acres of parkland surrounding the hotel, its the perfect romantic retreat.
Food plays a prominent role at the hotel – from the grass roots commitment to minimising food miles and the four acre kitchen garden, to the award winning restaurant and cookery school. Swinton Park’s commitment to cutting food miles and carbon emissions and reducing power consumption, following the restoration of its walled garden, the installation of a carbon-neutral wood-chip boiler and an eco-friendly laundry, has been recognised at a national level.
