I would like to say that we had an absolutely wonderfully time, from arriving to departure. Although we arrived a couple of hours early, we were warmly welcomed and offered storage for luggage if we needed it. As we had booked an hour long hack at the riding stables, we just left the luggage in the car. When checking in,... More

We spent just under 24 hours at Swinton Park in November enjoying a Foodie Celebration Package which was a gift from our family to mark our 50th Wedding Anniversary. From the warm welcome we received on our arrival to departure the next day every moment was a delight. We stayed in the Knaresborough room which is spacious and beautifully appointed.... More

So we changed our booking for a 2 night stay. On arrival driving up the drive the view... More

Luxurious hotel a real home from home assuming that you live in a country manor house that is. My wife and I were given a warm welcome and a chilled prossecco upon arrival. The hotel oozes old English qualities of hospitality and understated style. We had a substantial pub lunch in Masham so we didn't feel up to a full... More

Another two night stay. Great surroundings, great food, very attentive staff. Cocktails are a must. If your going in December you can expect a treat as Xmas decorations starting to go up. Loved it, and booked again In December 2017.

A beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting, we were met at the door with someone taking our bags and offering Prosecco in the lounge. In fact apart from £14 cocktails being made by someone who admitted he'd 'never really done this before' and the wet spa not being tidied before our hours use commenced the stay was lovely. Where it... More

We booked at fairly short notice and got a good deal for dinner, bed and breakfast and were thrilled, when we arrived, to be upgraded to a room looking out over the park where a herd of fallow deer were grazing. Everything was very clean, although some grouting in the bathroom was stained and could have done with going over.... More
