Spa & Leisure
In the grounds of the hotel, leisure time can be experienced at its finest, with country pursuits such as walking, cycling, fishing, golf, falconry, riding, and shooting all available. There are running tracks within the 200 acres of landscaped parkland that surround the hotel, where guests can enjoy seeing the resident fallow deer, lakes, woodland and a four acre kitchen garden.
Meanwhile, the serene setting is the perfect backdrop for the spa. Also in the grounds of the hotel, it has six treatment rooms, a cedar hot tub and sauna (available on an exclusive use basis by the hour, at an extra charge), and a relaxation area, to compliment a menu of treatments and therapies using Thalgo, Jessica, Daniel Sandler and Perron Rigot products.
Hotel & Accommodation
The ancestral seat of the Earl of Swinton, dating back to the 1880s, Swinton Park is a luxury castle hotel in the Yorkshire Dales. Situated at the heart of the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate which stretches from the River Ure in Wensleydale up onto the moors, the lavish country house combines warmth and grandeur as well as contemporary conveniences across 31 rooms that are located on both the first and second floors. There are five suites, including one set on three floors in the Turret, all with spacious sitting rooms.
With three AA Rosettes to its name, Samuel’s Restaurant is overseen by chef, Simon Crannage, and has multiple awards for its menu of seasonal and local produce, much of which is from the hotel’s own four acre walled garden. For the real foodies, an upgrade to the Tasting Menu is highly recommended and afternoon tea in the Drawing Room or, in summer months, on the Terrace is a must-try. A Chef’s Table dining experience in the Cookery School, run by Chef Director Steve Bulmer, is also something truly unique, or you can get an apron on and join him for a whole host of cookery courses that run throughout the year.
