Cook, dine and sleep in luxury at Swinton Park

Ripon, North Yorkshire

Treat yourself to an indulgent stay at Swinton Park, a luxury castle hotel with a stylish onsite cookery school in the Yorkshire Dales.

The ancestral seat of the Earl of Swinton and owned by the Cunliffe-Lister family since the 1880s, guests at Swinton Park in the Yorkshire Dales can look forward to an authentic English stately home experience and warm welcome.

Food plays a prominent role at the luxury country house hotel – there’s a four-acre kitchen garden, an award-winning restaurant and a cookery school in the grounds of the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate, overlooking the castle. Hotel guests have access to a range of country pursuits across the estate including fishing, golf, falconry, riding and shooting. There are splendid walks and beautiful gardens to explore, and you can play hunter-gatherer on a foraging walk. After all that action out in the fresh air, you’ll be content to relax in the hotel’s sumptuous spa.
