Swinton Park Christmas Package 2020

We are awaiting confirmation of the 2021 package, so we are showing a historic package as a guide of what to expect. It's never too early to book, so enquire for 2021.

Swinton Park is located in the heart of Yorkshire and is surrounded by the family estate in which guests have access to rivers, reservoirs, moorland, dales and beautiful countryside bordering the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Whilst steeped in history and tradition, the atmosphere at Swinton Park is one of warmth and great hospitality, and guests cannot fail but to feel at home in this castle.
