The sweeping driveway up to Swinton is enough to transport you into 18th century England. Boasting twenty thousand acres of parkland, from bluebell strewn woodland to boundless, yellow-tinged fields it is a special place to rest, play and explore. Whether you choose to relax in the spa, learn to cook in a professional kitchen, or merely stroll around the grounds, there is a magical atmosphere of curiosity and splendour. Choose one of the beautifully spacious rooms or for the more adventurous glamp in impossibly cosy tree lodges, a luxury yurt, or for the truly inquisitive, the Druid’s Temple. The variety doesn’t stop there, with a number of fine dining options varying from the award-winning Samuels restaurant to the bistro café – an ideal spot for a quick lunch in between escapades.


Much of the farmland and moorland is committed to environmental management schemes (administered by Natural England), and the Estate complies with best practice to deliver the highest standards in public, animal and plant health, environmental measures, and animal welfare. There is also a four-acre walled kitchen garden and local produce is used at the Estate cafes, restaurants, and cookery school.
