A Very Warm welcome awaits you

  • The Family

    Felicity & Mark Cunliffe-Lister

    Mark (The Baron of Masham) and his wife Felicity bought back the family home in 2001. It was with their passion, enthusiasm and hard work that made Swinton Park the hotel that we all love so dearly. Today, they can both be found about the Estate. Mark loves the great outdoors and can often be seen on the moors hosting shooting parties, whilst Felicity has donned a hard hat and is leading the development of our brand new Country Club & Spa.

    Susan Cunliffe-Lister

    Susan (Mark's mother) is a highly regarded garden designer, and it is thanks to her and her team's hard work that our four acre walled garden was lovingly restored. Now in full production with over 60 varieties of seasonal fruit, flowers, vegetables and herbs, the garden provides Samuel's with the seasonal ingredients they need for each of their menu's.
