Swinton Park Hotel

Swinton Park is the ancestral home of the Earl of Swinton, owned and run by the Cunliffe-Lister family. Set in 200 acres of parkland on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, the castle combines the style and elegance of a stately home with the comfort and exemplary service of a luxury hotel. There are 31 individually-designed bedrooms-including five suites, lavishly-furnished public rooms with chandeliers and ornate fireplaces and a relaxing spa with cedar hot tub, sauna and five treatment rooms. The hotel’s location, within the 20,000-acre Swinton Estate makes it truly unique. The estate provides the setting for a wide range of outdoor activities including golf, falconry, shooting, fishing, cycling, walking and horseriding.

The Parkland

The estate boasts lakes, waterfalls and follies in the 200 acres of parkland that was designed in the 18th century. Hotel guests can enjoy the magnificent expanse of the landscape. Whilst fallow deer graze nearby, the changing colours of the seasons in the woodland and gardens and the views across the Estate and moors never fail to inspire.


Families and children enjoy a warm welcome at Swinton Park, with private rooms and activities for every generation to enjoy. Birthday parties and anniversary celebrations are always popular, particularly events such as a demonstration Chef's table in the Cookery School or afternoon tea and croquet on the terrace for the whole family.

Entertainment for children includes indoor and outdoor play areas, children's cookery courses, falconry, bikes, a nature trail in the grounds, pony trekking, picnics and kite flying. Resident children enjoy goody bags on arrival, with a children’s menu and facilities such as cots, high chairs and babysitting.
