About Swinton Estate

Many congratulations on your engagement!

Swinton Park

Set within the stunning Yorkshire Dales, Swinton Park is a beautiful and unique castle setting for your special wedding celebrations. The grand historic building, situated in 20,000 acres of picturesque parkland and gardens, provides an idyllic backdrop for your big day.

The stately home’s fantastic team are welcoming and professional, providing an outstanding quality of service and ensuring that your day runs seamlessly. Working closely with you, the team will create a wedding day that surpasses your expectations.

Swinton Park hotel offers a variety of function rooms to choose from for your ceremony, wedding breakfast or evening celebrations. From the small and intimate to the large and lavish, we have a space to suit you and your specific requirements.

Lake Island, with a quaint Georgian summerhouse is ideal for intimate meals and alfresco dining. The wonderful privacy of the island is beautifully complemented by woodland and birdsong.

Deerhouse

Alternatively, the beautifully restored Deer House is perfect for those seeking somewhere truly out of the ordinary, for either a daytime wedding breakfast or an evening barbecue celebration. By day, enjoy the parkland setting with ancient trees, wide skies and views over the castle and Home Lake. By night, enjoy the magic and romance of a candle-lit setting, with torches to light the way and glowing braziers to ward off the evening chill, with acoustic music to entertain guests or a silent disco for something that little bit different.

Swinton Bivouac

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!

    A little thank you woof from Poppy (the dog) for making her feel welcome too!

    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.

    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 :)

    Mr & Mrs Earnshaw

    Thank you all so much honestly everyone was so helpful through the whole process.

    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.

    Thanks
    Mr and Mrs Earnshaw!!
