“You’ve always wanted to stay in a real castle? Then look no further than Swinton Park, ancestral home of the Cunliffe-Lister family. Set in a 200-acre park, complete with lakes and walled garden, the house is richly furnished but with an unpretentious air. The award-winning food is mostly sourced from the Swinton estate, and there's a cookery school, run by Chef Director Stephen Bulmer, in restored Georgian stables. A determinedly eco-friendly hotel.”
