A Bothy Hut experience is an opportunity to make the journey part of the adventure, either with a guided walk or an orienteering exercise. On arrival there is the added element of surprise with the table laid with fine linen and fire blazing in the hearth. There are three Bothy Huts on the Swinton Estate, each enjoying fabulous views across the Dales in wonderfully remote locations.
The Bothy Huts vary in size, but can seat up to 12 comfortably (for a picnic).The prices below are for the hire of a Bothy Hut and are for guidance only as costs may vary depending on your particular requirements. Please note that for groups larger than 8 there may be an additional transport charge for the less accessible Bothy Huts.
Due to their remote location, we are only able to serve picnics at the Bothy Huts and not barbecues. Please go to the picnic menu page for details of the picnic selection.
Includes the hire of the Bothy Hut, waiting staff to set up and serve the meal and complimentary transport for your guests.

Late spring is the most beautiful time of year at Swinton Park, with the rhododendrons and azaleas in glorious, full bloom in the parkland and the first young vegetables coming up in our Walled Garden. Enjoy these to full advantage at our Garden Lunches and Garden Design Days, or our Estate Produce Lunches – starting a Celebration of Asparagus from 13th May. Our Deerhouse Lunches and Dinners are also running throughout the summer, including a new Barbecue Cook & Lunch course to polish up your grilling skills.
