Stopped just one night during our journey thru England, we got fully what we expected. The venue is fantastic, a gem set in a lovely park. It's worth every penny we spent. Excellent service, relax, quietness are just plain words to describe our experience, it deserves a visit. The building is magnificient, a walk in the part make you feel... More

Fantastic hotel. Only stayed one night but was lovely. Great grounds to walk and run in. Food in the restaurant was very tasty indeed and there was great attention to detail. Complimentary whiskey in the room was a first. Needless to say it was used!! Would heartily recommend.

Lovely Sunday lunch and opportunity to walk around the grounds and gardens of the hotel. Sitting in the restaurant we had a view of the deer walking by while the sunshine flooded into the room. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and served by friendly professional staff. Some lovely touches such as the amazing crackling and apple sauce to start... More

Yet again a wonderful stay! Amazing dinner at Samuels, the Pea velouté was to die for! The Elderflower Parfait was out of this world!!!! When you stay just one night you feel like you've been there for a week, it's so relaxing and peaceful! Only slight difference from previous stays was that the check in and check out was a... More

I booked Swinton Park after finding the hotel when I was looking for a cookery school experience as a Christmas gift. Both the cookery school & hotel were excellent, lovely staff the rooms are great as is the food. Beautiful surroundings. I would certainly recommend a stay here.

The surroundings, the staff, the food and the facilities could not be faulted. Every single details was accounted for. Nothing was too much trouble. They knew what we wanted, before we wanted it. For a quite and private celebration of our special occasion, we could not have asked for anything more from a weekend away. Would highly recommend this venue... More

Had a really enjoyable evening with 3 good friends as part of a group of 22 people. Wonderful atmosphere dining alfresco in the open fronted deer shed. The service was outstanding and plenty of food which was delicious. Excellent value for money. An added bonus was a wedding firework display which we could see from venue.
