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.
