Christmas

Christmas 2014

Arrive at Swinton Park on Christmas Eve, where the warmest welcome awaits you, your family and friends.

The house party starts with a traditional afternoon tea served in the elegant drawing room and snug sitting room, with a pianist playing during the afternoon. The evening will begin with canapés and champagne whilst enjoying the local choir singing your favourite carols, followed by dinner in Samuel’s Restaurant.

Then join with fellow guests attending a local church service – transport will be on hand. On your return, hot chocolate will be served to warm you on your way to bed.

On Christmas day, Santa will be waiting to wish you a Merry Christmas and hand out gifts from under the tree. During the morning you can feel free to enjoy a stroll to the lakes and gardens in the parkland, or just relax and soak up the atmosphere.

Christmas lunch is served in Samuel’s Restaurant offering a traditional Christmas menu. After lunch, a blockbuster movie in the private cinema, board games in the Billiards Room or just relax in front of a roaring log fire. In the evening, our chefs will present a beautiful buffet, featuring the finest local produce.

After breakfast on Boxing Day, we will be happy to assist you to plan your day’s activities. Perhaps a day at Wetherby races, the Dales treasure hunt, sale shopping in Leeds, Harrogate or York, Panto at the Georgian Theatre in Richmond, clay pigeon shooting at the school or simply joining David our Head Porter for a walk to Masham and back, or simply relaxing in the spa. A falconry display is also held in the grounds in the afternoon for you to enjoy.

The party continues in the evening with Champagne cocktails served in the Drawing Room to the sounds of our pianist, followed by a black tie dinner in Samuel’s accompanied with wines from around the world. You can then try your luck at our casino.

On the morning of Saturday 27th a late leisurely breakfast is served before saying our goodbyes. We kindly ask all guests to vacate their rooms by 11.00am.
