Looking for something a little more rustic? Swinton Bivouac allows you to get back to nature with a woodland wedding with the unique druids temple as backdrop, with a Tipi for post ceremony celebrations with stunning views of the Yorkshire countryside. Sleep under a blanket of stars in our Meadow Yurts, Tree lodges and bunkbarn, and there's even a bistro cafe and bar! If you've ever dreamt of a charmingly rustic wedding in the beauty of the great outdoors and want something that is magical, memorable and creative... A woodland wedding at Swinton Bivouac is for you.
Your woodland ceremony is without doubt the heart of your wedding day and therefore we believe it should be something you and your guests will remember forever. The woodland ceremony includes hay bale seating and a blank canvas for you to personalise as you wish. After your beautiful ceremony, your guests can enjoy woodland games and explore the area while you have some remarkable photographs taken amongst the woodland.

Such a Beautiful Venue
We are so thankful to have found such a beautiful venue to celebrate as we began our new life together. Our wedding would not have been complete without the effortless work the events team put in. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel most welcome and had the best weekend!Sent on 14/02/2019

Elegance & perfection
Where do we start? After a long search for a wedding venue in the UK and were nearly about to give it all up, we finally found one - Swinton Park - the most amazing, beautiful and perfect venue for our wedding weekend.Sent on 19/06/2018
First of all, the castle is absolutely stunning and is surrounded by beautiful lush nature and wild deer like it came straight out of a fairytale. Everything in the interior is just as gorgeous, the dining room, hallway, drawing room, library, etc., and the accommodation rooms are so unique, luxurious, spacious and well kept. The brand new country club and spa just adds to it all.
We could write for ages about how amazing Swinton Park is...
However, our wedding day wouldn’t have been so perfect if it wasn’t for their amazing staff - every single person was so professional, helpful, warm and welcoming, and did absolutely everything to make sure everything was perfect. A special thank you goes to the wonderful events team: Lauren, Molly, Chris, James, and the rest of the team at Swinton Park.
We got all the help we needed to plan our wedding from start to finish and everything turned out even better than we could have ever imagined! Everyone at Swinton Park made our day so magical and we left with so much joy and happy memories.
We really can’t find any negatives. The food, the service, the rooms, the atmosphere, the spa, the outdoor surroundings, EVERYTHING was PERFECT. We cannot wait to be back to celebrate many anniversaries at Swinton Park in the future :)

Thank you all so much honestly everyone was so helpful through the whole process.Sent on 16/05/2017
Sasha you were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. You answered all my emails and let me have a crafting room. To see your genuine excitement on the morning was lovely and made me feel like you had everything under control and we were going to have a great day.
Lauren who we just met to be in charge of the music I would have panicked but she was a pro and again so genuinely excited.
Michael was so welcoming and answered my mums 500 questions. The Belfast connection made us all feel at home.
All of the staff especially the waiter who had just started made us feel so welcome- thank you
All the guests fell in love with the hotel I think a lot of them will be back!and we will definitely be back soon and for anniversaries.
Of course we will send you pictures I had a look at the ones on Facebook and I'm sorry the one of Matt sleeping/ passed out is tagged against Swinton park!!I'm so lucky!
Thank you again for all your help and for making our wedding such a celebration.
Mr and Mrs Earnshaw!!
