The Northern Chaser cross country course (http://www.ukriders.co.uk/Northern_Chasers) is on the Swinton Estate at Ruskill Bank Farm, 2 miles from the hotel. The fifty jump course passes through scenic farm and woodland with wonderful views across Wensleydale. At each jump there is a variety of heights, enabling riders at every level of experience to complete the course. The maximum height of each jump is 3′ 6″.
Cost per day per horse is £20 which entitles you to ride the course as many times as you like.
For further details about the course, availability and payment, please contact Joyce Yates on 01677 460074.
We are delighted to have received planning approval for our Country Club and Spa, which will include an indoor swimming pool together with full spa and fitness facilities, as well as a 40-seat conservatory restaurant, coffee shop and Swinton Estate shop. Please see our latest press release for more information.
In the meantime, the weather is still perfect for walking, cycling and riding on the Swinton Estate and it’s also a great time to enjoy replenishing spa treats and tempting gourmet indulgences at the hotel, such as our Estate Lunch Menu – currently featuring partridge and pheasant - or our inspiring range of seasonal cookery courses.
