Swinton Cookery School is a relaxed, stylish and airy demonstration kitchen housed in a converted Georgian stable wing adjacent to Swinton Park hotel, perfect for the appreciation of good food and fine wine. Perched on the Swinton Estate on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, we are passionate about using sustainable local produce. The four acre walled garden behind the hotel is planted with fruit, vegetables and herbs, providing a ready source of fresh seasonal ingredients for the cookery school kitchen, and estate venison, rabbit, smoked trout and game are a few examples of the local ingredients sourced from the wider estate.
The Cookery School runs a busy programme of half day, full day and weekend hands-on, practical cookery classes throughout the year. Courses can be either residential or non residential and are available for all ages and ability levels, including children’s cookery lessons. From classic baking and Sunday roasts to Sushi and Thai, there’s a course to suit everyone. So be you a beginner or a professional, join us at Swinton and fall in love with cookery all over again!
