Green Tourism Award for Swinton Park

Swinton Park, the luxury castle hotel in the Yorkshire Dales, has just been awarded the coveted Green Tourism Business Scheme award. The scheme is the largest green accreditation scheme in the world and the only one currently recognised by the VisitBritain tourism authority.   In order to qualify for this rating, the hotel had to demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, managing waste and energy consumption, reducing its carbon footprint and promoting an awareness of the environment and the community. It follows a committed level of environmental investment and training at the hotel over the last three years.
