We were married at Swinton Park on 5th June this year and would recommend this venue to anyone looking for luxury, fantastic service and beautiful scenery both inside and out. The service really is first class from every member of staff - we had exclusive use of Swinton, meaning we had total privacy on day and the team were on...

A hidden gem, not far from Masham, and well worth a wander round the grounds. Lovely sunny day helped, but still lots of interest around a trail with lots to see and a quiz for kids. Deer in the next fields, a bird hide and more make it a place worth spending a few hours at least, with the chance...

We were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding here, our room was tasteful and stylish with a huge bathroom and an amazingly comfortable bed. The staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly. The breakfast was delicious. Sadly we didn't have time to use the spa. The wedding was wonderful a lovely setting, highly recommended

Bought as a honeymoon gift, lovely looking castle and grounds, amazing place to take your wedding photos. Staff can't do enough for you, very clean. Only down side is limited choice on restaurant menu and over priced food. Other than that well worth a stay as the beds are the most comfortable ever.

Thank you for your feedback and I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your honeymoon gift. I'm surprised you felt that dinner did not deliver the same level of experience and value as the rest of your stay. We don't offer an extensive menu because we like to feature local, seasonal ingredients, in particular those growing in the Walled Garden and...

Wow!! When we first drove up to the hotel what a beautiful journey and to be greeted and for the lovely porter John to be on hand. With a very warm welcome and being guided to our room the Turret our minds were over whelmed with emotions of how beautiful the room was set out. The grounds were amazing and...

Thank you for your review. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Swinton Park and Swinton Bivouac. In fact, we have recently introduced our 'Temple to Turret' break, with a night in each location, to encourage more guests to try the full breadth of experiences on the Swinton Estate.

As you will see to the left of this panel I do not write many reviews. I only feel the need to do so if the hotel is excellent or dire! Fortunately we've been lucky and have never endured the latter.

The hotel is in stunning grounds, an absolute credit to the gardeners. Deer on the estate and falconry are amazing. Sorry But some of the hotel receptionists could be more friendlier to the clients. Don't seem interested was my impression. The average guests don't seem to have the same advertised valet parking or meet and greet service. It was quite...
