“Pets are very much welcomed at Raithwaite Sandsend – we’re one of the most dog-friendly hotels in Whitby and the surrounding area.

Swinton Park

10 Swinton Rd, Swinton, Ripon HG4 4JH

We have visited the spa at Swinton Park and were blown away by it! 

“A luxury castle hotel in the Yorkshire Dales, with fine dining, cookery school, country club and spa and extensive grounds.

Owned by the Cunliffe-Lister family since the 1880s, and the ancestral seat of the Earl of Swinton, guests at the hotel enjoy an authentic stately home experience. Rooms are furnished with antiques and family portraits, with the warmth and grandeur of a traditional English house.

There is a sense throughout the castle of it being more of a lavish country home than a hotel, with individually designed bedrooms, each with generously sized bathrooms and exceptional views.

Guests particularly enjoy the relaxed environment, and with the two hundred acres of parkland surrounding the hotel, its a perfect romantic retreat.”
