There is a wide range of walks available on the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate which stretches from the River Ure in Wensleydale up onto the moorland Dales which borders the National Park, and at Swinton Park, within the 200 acres of walled parkland that surround the hotel.
With miles of footpaths available, the options range from a leisurely stroll beside the River Ure to a trek up onto the moorland Dales. Guests at Swinton Park (day or resident) can also enjoy walks within the beautiful landscaped parkland, with lakes, woodland and a four acre kitchen garden.
We can arrange guided walks on the Swinton Estate or further afield with TeamWalking, a business run by Mark Reid, author of ‘The Inn Way’ walking guidebooks and Mountain Leader. Mark offers guided half day and full day walks through stunning locations, sharing his knowledge of local history, nature and the countryside. Instruction in map reading and navigation can also be included.
Walks are tailored to suit your group - Mark will get in touch to discuss your requirements. Prices from £29 per person, with a minimum of 4 participants.
Please call Reception on 01765 680900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out more, or make a booking.
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.
