The Masham Riding and Treking Centre is adjacent to Swinton Park and at the heart of the Estate. The centre provides trekking and basic riding lessons in an outdoor arena. There are 18 horses and ponies of which most are pure bred highlands, but we also have Welsh mountain ponies and a Shire horse, all of which have a friendly disposition. The riding centre deals with all levels of riding skill and all ages of rider. It is also home to the Dykes Hill Highland Pony Stud with a prize winning lineage of over 30 years.

As we bask in the sunshine of high summer, the Swinton Estate and Yorkshire Dales provide a heavenly venue for walking, cycling and riding. Closer to home, the Walled Garden is brimming over with soft fruit and young vegetables, providing delicious ingredients for our Garden Lunches and Estate Produce Lunches.
The darkening leaves on the turret remind us that Autumn is coming, but also herald the coming of game, wild mushrooms and other seasonal treats.
