New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

The Castle is set within the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate - this is one of the many attractions that sets Swinton Park apart from other country house hotels. The Estate stretches from the River Ure in Wensleydale up onto the moorland dales and hotel guests have access to a whole host of country pursuits that include fishing, golf, falconry, riding and shooting. The Yorkshire Dales scenery is outstanding, and there are many popular spots within a walk or a short drive. Swinton Bivouac is located on the Estate, just two miles from Swinton Park, close to the Druid’s Temple – a gothic ‘folly’ in the woods. Swinton Bivouac offers luxury camping in yurts and woodland shacks, along with a stylish café and shop.

Ripon and its locality have many reasons to keep visitors interested and entertained, with an abundance of top class visitor attractions within a 10-mile radius to complement any visit to the City itself. These include the World Heritage site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, Newby Hall, the 14th century Ripley Castle, a modern theme park at Lightwater Valley and the village of Masham with its two breweries.

Ideally located to explore the Yorkshire Dales or even the North York Moors, there's always plenty to do in and around the city for the young or not so young! Ripon is therefore a great place to stay or visit whatever the season. Whatever the purpose of your visit; a weekend break, a daytrip with friends, or a family holiday, we hope you'll spend some time amid Ripon's ancient charms and discover all that this vibrant City has to offer.

Swinton Park 4*

A luxury castle hotel in the Yorkshire Dales, with fine dining, cookery school, spa and extensive grounds. Owned by the Cunliffe-Lister family since the 1880s, and the ancestral seat of the Earl of Swinton, guests at the hotel enjoy an authentic stately home experience. Rooms are furnished with antiques and family portraits, with the warmth and grandeur of a traditional English house.

There is a sense throughout the castle of it being more of a lavish home than a hotel, with 
individually designed bedrooms, each with generously sized bathrooms and exceptional views. Needless to say, the standards of service are excellent – discreet but far from stuffy, and the hotel has enjoyed wide acclaim and many awards in recognition of this.

Guests particularly enjoy the relaxed environment, and with the 
200 acres of parkland surrounding the hotel, one can very quickly leave all worldly cares and worries behind. It’s the perfect romantic retreat. The location, close to the pretty market town of Masham and only 15 minutes from the A1, is deceptively convenient.

Food plays a prominent role at the hotel – from the grass roots commitment to minimising food miles and the four acre kitchen garden, to the award winning restaurant and cookery school. Other luxuries include a spa with treatment rooms and a busy programme of events that run in the hotel and grounds throughout the year for families, garden lovers and walkers.

Some services may incur additional charges, payable locally.
