We understand that arranging a wedding involves making lots of decisions. We are happy to provisionally book a date for you with no obligation or deposit required whilst you are deciding exactly how you would like your big day to be.
If you choose Swinton Park to be the venue for your wedding we will confirm your booking by taking a non-refundable deposit of £2000 for a two day exclusive use or £1000 for all other bookings and entering into a booking agreement, which includes provision for a cancellation charge.
For a limited period only, we are offering an early bird offer of a complimentary one night stay, including dinner, for the bride and groom booking an exclusive use wedding, if written confirmation of the booking and payment of the deposit is made within two weeks.
The time that follows we will spend helping you with all of your arrangements. We aim to have all details confirmed at least two weeks prior to the day. We will require payment of 75% of the anticipated costs of the event to be paid six weeks prior to the wedding and the remaining 25% two weeks prior to the big day. Any additional charges will be invoiced from the date of the wedding, payable within 30 days.

Thank goodness the sun has now come out and we seem to have finally put winter behind us! The Parkland has burst into bloom with clouds of blossom and a colourful carpet of daffodils and bluebells around the trees.
The Walled Garden is also getting going, with bright tulips swaying in the breeze and home grown asparagus bursting forth. Asparagus is at its most delicious when eaten closest to home, so dishes featuring home-grown asparagus are now on all our menus, including the bar and lounge. The garden furniture is out and soon it will be time for afternoon teas on the lawn and evening drinks on the terrace at sunset. English summertime at it’s best.
