Secretly Famous™ for…

Their changing menu inspired by the fruit, vegetables and herbs grown in the four acre walled garden. The largest hotel kitchen garden in the UK.

This fairytale castle dates back from the late 1600's, with subsequent alterations by the Danby and Cunliffe-Lister families, combining both Regency and Victorian Gothic style and architecture.

Samuel Cunliffe-Lister bought Swinton Park in 1880, having amassed a fortune in woolen mills in Bradford. His great-great-great grandson, Mark (the current Baron of Masham), now owns the hotel and surrounding 20,000 acre estate with his wife Felicity. Lavishly furnished with family portraits and antiques, the hotel combines the traditional warmth and hospitality of a stately home with every creature comfort a contemporary hotel could provide.

The restaurant boasts a superb gold leaf ceiling, sumptuous décor and is matched by the exquisite cuisine. For a sense of occasion you can indulge in afternoon tea on the terrace, or a picnic in the moorland Bothy hut. For a dining experience with a difference, go alfresco at the Deerhouse in the Parkland, or join the Chef's Table in the Cookery School.

There are many activities open to guests; why not try fishing, golf, falconry or off-road driving and then unwind in the onsite spa, complete with sauna, Jacuzzi and relaxation zone. But above all, relax and absorb the timeless elegance of a quintessentially English country house.

Each of the thirty bedrooms is individually designed, drawing inspiration from the nearby dales, castles, abbeys and towns. Sweeping views over the surrounding gardens, parkland and gatehouse are in abundance.

Fresh seasonal produce comes from the hotel's walled garden and the surrounding 20,000 acre estate, including venison, game, lamb and beef, and wild foods such as elderflower, wild garlic and woodland mushrooms. Low food miles are guaranteed!
