A luxury castle stay on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales, with superb award-winning restaurant - includes breakfast, dinner, a spa treatment and discounts

A grand old English castle in a vast country estate, Swinton Park Hotel & Spa is a beautiful setting for a relaxing break in the Yorkshire Dales. Surrounded by 200 acres of parkland holding no less than five lakes, there are tons of wholesome country pursuits to indulge in, from shooting to riding, fishing and falconry. If you’re itching to roam further, the Dales are right on your doorstep, with their pretty villages and picturesque trails for walking and cycling.

Part of the wider Swinton Estate, which comprises of 20,000 acres, Swinton Park Hotel & Spa has been in the Cunliffe-Lister family since 1880 and feels more like a home than a hotel. Relaxed, welcoming social areas and excellent service are combined to create a truly peaceful country house. The bedrooms are beautiful and individually designed to the last detail, as is the world-class Swinton Country Club & Spa (new in 2017), which offers a new concept for UK spas - spacious, contemporary and reflecting every bit of its 20,000-acre environment and Yorkshire heritage. Enjoy relaxing spaces, stunning facilities, outdoor activities and spa treatment expertise for a memorable spa experience.

Fine dining restaurant, Samuel's, is the stunning dining room with original gold leaf ceiling and award-winning cuisine. With a chef on hand to impart their wisdom, you might want to join one of the popular cookery classes in the converted Georgian stable wing, too. The Terrace Restaurant, part of the Swinton Country Club & Spa, provides a fresh new option for dining, with an inspired seasonal menu crafted using the fruit, herbs and vegetables grown within the neighbouring garden. Swinton Park Hotel & Spa scooped a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
