Another visit to the wonderful Swinton Park hotel. Just overnighting this time but there is such an amazing variety of facilities available that a longer stay is needed! Samuel's Restaurant has to be one of the best in the UK. Such skilled use of local produce creates mouth watering options and whatever you select, you couldn't fail to be impressed.... More

Stayed here for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The whole place is truly stunning. Our room (Richmond Suite) was huge and beautifully decorated. The staff were all friendly and polite, we booked a package which include cream tea which we upgraded to afternoon tea. It was lovely to sit in the beautiful drawing room soaking up the relaxed...

Just returned from taking a cooking course on Northern Italian food at the Swinton Park Cookery School with Steve Bulmer. I really enjoyed the course. Steve Bulmer is a terrific teacher and is so enthusiastic and helpful. There were so many techniques and demonstrations to work through (cooking perfect fish, making pasta, italian bread, pesto, risotto and pastry). I thought... More

Everything about this Hotel is delightful - from the friendliness of the staff, the quality of all the rooms, the superb food and the setting. We have been before but the standards have reached a new level. Many, many thanks for giving us such a nice time.

Decided last week to take my husband away for his birthday. We stayed in a Baron's room overlooking the wonderful Deer Park. The room was spacious and very comfortable. All of the staff were very welcoming. Dining in the magnificent dining room was a real treat, the chefs incorporated local produce, and all of the food was delicious. Walks around... More

We arrived on a Friday evening in January and had a warm welcome by the staff. We were shown to our room which was elegant and spacious and loved the fact that the rooms had Yorkshire names rather than numbers and big glass fire doors in the corridors so it did not take your eye away the existing surroundings. We... More

I was given a voucher for a hawk walk for my 40th birthday. Went today and really enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend it. The falconer Sophie was extremely friendly and so knowledgeable and passionate about her birds who were just beautiful. Followed by afternoon tea in the hotel which was great value, delicious and very relaxing. The staff were... More

In 2011 my wife treated me to a cookery course at Swinton Park for my birthday. This time I didn't have to make my own dinner as we settled into the one-night package. The welcome was excellent with very pleasant staff and we settled in to our room. It was lovely seeing the fires lit when it was wet and... More

I note that Swinton Park now features on the Secret Escapes website but I booked direct with the hotel and it was no more expensive than the agency deal would have been. There is no way I can prove it but I cannot believe that we would have been offered what must be one of the better rooms had we... More
