Dine alfresco in the walled gardens at historic Swinton Park

Ripon, North Yorkshire

The restored walled garden at historic Swinton Park is a delightful spot for lunch in the open-air.


As lunch locations go, the walled garden of luxury hotel Swinton Park is not a bad spot, especially if you’re about to eat a lavish plate of produce that’s actually grown here.

The estate’s owner Susan Cunliffe-Lister lovingly restored the kitchen garden, in the grounds of the English country house, just over ten years ago. Over a two-course lunch and coffee Susan will tell the story of the restoration project and share her passion for all things green. Over 60 varieties of fruit and vegetables are grown here, including alpine strawberries, Jerusalem artichokes and flowers from the garden decorate the hotel.

After lunch explore the extensive grounds on a tour of the parklands, where fallow deer and stags wander freely.
