We stayed one night last week on dinner,bed and breakfast deal for my husband's birthday. Ended up paying the extra for the tasting menu which was excellent so we didn't mind at all.The room,however,was average and overpriced for what it was. We have stayed in nicer rooms in 'gastro'pubs in the Lakes for a lot less. The staff,however,were friendly and... More

It's a fascinating, fabulous stately home. We've been three times - once for a tasting menu special occasion (we weren't paying), once for an excellent foraging and cooking day and then yesterday... We love good, creative food and understand that delicate and rich tastes can mean expensive, but there is something shocking about the laughably small amounts of food. It's... More

We had coffee on arrival in a lovely drawing room looking out over the beautiful grounds. A two course lunch was served in the very elegant dining room where the people booked on the garden course were seated at tables together. The food was excellent as was the service. The meal was followed by a talk about the gardens and... More

I wanted somewhere special that had the wow factor to book as a surprise for my husband's birthday and I came across Swinton Park. The reviews were really good so I thought I would give it a try.

Swinton Park, a castle home sitting in the middle of an enormous estate on the English country side. What more could you ask for? Small town of Masham is a nice scenic walk (around a mile) from the castle home. There's a golf course on the way to Masham, and don't forget to have a brew at the Black Sheep... More

Overall this place was wonderful. 7 course meal for dinner was really well done and super fun. Grounds and common areas were spectacular and made you feel like an aristocrat. Our room was good sized and well-appointed but it was dirty in places. Like the greasy smears around the light switches, the crusty thing on the rim of the toilet,... More

Thank you for your feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay overall. A historic property of this size is a housekeeping challenge, which requires the continuous service of our housekeeping team, as you noticed. However, this is not an excuse for any items being overlooked, so I am very grateful for you bringing these points to our attention.Your comments... More

What a wonderful day out. Took my husband for his birthday. Had a brilliant day, despite the British weather. Meal top class. The staff couldn't have been more friendlier. Even the owner herself came to chat. Many thanks to Mandy and staff for the excellent. Tour of grounds. We will always remember it.

As a group of friends, we had arranged a surprise tea for an 80th birthday. What a lovely setting for it. We had the dining room to ourselves, and it was so personal. The staff were very attentive, enabling us to dress up the room, allowed us our own choice of music and to keep it a surprise until she... More
