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* —
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.
