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.

What a fabulous place! We drove through the deer park up to the door and was greeted by a porter who unloaded our car and escorted us to the reception. Our car was then parked up for us while we booked in.The rooms were beautifully furnished with comfortable sofas and lovely views of the grounds. Our bedroom had a four... More

The property is really beautiful and full of character. We had the most enjoyable walks in the gardens and to the lakes. Many animals make the stroll even more interesting. We stayed in very large and comfortable Duke Room. I had mixed feelings about the food at dinner in the restaurant one night. But the next day we arrived late... More

was absolutely superb. The Swinton Park Hotel is set in fabulous grounds with superb gardens, lakes and wildlife including some amazing Birds of Prey. The afternoon tea was a gift from a family member and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were very friendly whilst maintaining a professional efficiency. Afternoon Tea is not something we would normally do but... More

As my wife and I were attending a "Garden Lunch" event at Swinton we booked bed and breakfast for the previous night. At the time of booking I was told that we would be given the 'Whitby' room and made a note of the fact. On booking in we were allocated the 'Constable Burton' room and whilst it was the... More

We have been staying at Swinton Park for the last 10 years or so, visiting it 2 or 3 times a year. Although we live fairly nearby, it is a really wonderful place to stay for a short break at any time of year. The setting is fantastic, the service is first class, the accommodation is superb and the food... More

A much needed midweek break from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. From the moment we walked through the door to leaving, we were treated with the utmost courtesy. We arrived a little too early to check in, but were given a guided door of the house before taking a seat outside on the terrace and enjoy a... More
