Swans on the lake at Swinton Park



 A castle hotel, an ancestral stately home and an outstanding wedding venue. Surrounded by 200 acres of parkland in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, this secluded, luxury hotel and grounds enjoy a spectacular setting. The grandeur of a historic building is complemented by a friendly and professional team who provide a seamless level of service together with a total commitment to ensure that your wedding day exceeds every expectation.



Weddings at Swinton Park can be booked as a Non-Exclusive event, using one or more of our reception rooms with accommodation taken as required (minimum number of bedrooms required for certain dates), or as an Exclusive Use event, taking over the whole castle and all 31 bedrooms. Please click above links to see our dedicated pages for more information.

We have a licence for civil ceremonies and we can also host ceremonies for renewal of vows. A wide range of function rooms are available for a ceremony, wedding breakfast or celebration, offering a high level of flexibility and the ability to accommodate every individual requirement. These include a private island on one of the lakes in the Parkland, complete with Georgian summerhouse – perfect for an intimate dinner. The island is also ideally suited to an alfresco picnic or barbecue, in total privacy, surrounded by woodland and birdsong.

Our award winning Modern British cuisine places an emphasis on seasonal fresh produce sourced from the surrounding family estate and the hotel’s walled garden. Our choice of menus offer an extensive range of dishes which are complemented by a carefully selected wine list.



We wish you many congratulations on your engagement and look forward to sharing your happy day at Swinton Park.
