We have stayed here before and had to go back. This time we also did a course at the Cookery School and had a meal at the Chef's Table. A must try for everyone. Kevin, the Chef at the School, and his team are really great fun and would make perfect hosts for a corporate team build. If you want...

This beautiful Castle is only 4 hrs north of London. At 8 am, from The York Suite windows, one can see these majestic deers. Besides the gourmet food experience, after an invigorating walk on the Estate, you have to savor the afternoon "Crème Tea" in the Drawing room. The scones are just scrumptious. The rooms are huge, the Castle and...

An overnight stay on a chilly January weekend to celebrate a joint birthday. I loved it. From the complimentary prosecco by the fire on arrival to the walk around the frosty grounds after breakfast on Sunday, it felt like a really special treat. Our room was Swaledale and we had a lovely view over the park. Highlight of the weekend...

Great house, great staff, great food, and they serve real ale! We had a nice relaxing time, in beautiful surroundings, I could not fault it. We ate in the bar, normal food not fine dining as in the restuarant, the food was excellent, and the service superb. We will return!

We recently visited Swinton park for the first time we had a lovely meal which we both enjoyed but thought it was a little pricey for what you got. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive and could not be faulted. The hotel is a very grand and set in beautiful country side. After our meal we had a...

Overall a very positive experience with no specific negatives. I would have hoped to see the walled garden in a better state when we took a walk on the Sunday morning after breakfast. A waiter for the evening meal was too chatty and somewhat nervous, but apart from that the staff were professional and courteous. The room and bed were...

A beautiful setting to spend a weekend. Beautiful rooms with fantastic customer service. Had the taster menu with wine pairing and was of the best meals I have had in years. With acres of grounds to stroll around it was the perfect mini break.

Just had the most sublime 4 nights at Swinton Park having returned from a Year ago. This has to be one of the best Country Hotels in the UK in terms of accommodation, staff and food never mind its fantastic setting ! You are living, albeit only for a short while, in a Stately Home with all the trimmings. Internally,...

We booked a two night stay in a Baron room through Secret Escapes. Having booked very last minute (the morning of our first night) we chased the hotel via email to confirm our booking and inform that we'd be bringing our dog. We didn't get a response and when they finally called we were already halfway through the almost 3...
