Stay at Swinton Park, the luxury castle hotel in the Yorkshire Dales, and explore the surrounding 20,000 acre Swinton Estate on the hotelís new “Swinton Estate Rambler” package.

The Swinton Estate stretches from the River Ure in Wensleydale up onto the moorland dales, with a choice of suggested walks for guests ranging from a gentle river stroll to a circular day walk up onto the moors and back. This is a beautiful stretch of countryside with reservoirs and woodland, and working farming communities. It is less developed than the adjoining National Park and being off the beaten track offers more in the way of uncongested peace and quiet.

Attractions within the Estate include a Druid’s Temple folly on the moor edge, and several standing stones and druids seats within the parkland surrounding the hotel. The parkland also has five lakes and extensive gardens, including a restored four acre walled garden that produces over 60 varieties of fruit, herbs and vegetables for the kitchens for the hotel and cookery school.

The Swinton Estate Rambler package starts at £285 per room per night* and includes:

*A supplement of £50 per room applies to Saturday night bookings, and one night stays may not always be available on Saturday nights. Rates apply to standard room bookings, upgrade to a superior room available at £50/night.
