All guests of Swanson House are invited to enjoy a range of facilities during your stay. We aim to make your time with us as relaxing and luxurious as possible.


Guests share use a beautiful pantry, overlooking the cobbled path that leads to the house's former stables and providing a stunning view of the ruins of Brough Castle. A freshly baked cake is placed in the pantry each day for guests and you may choose from a range of family games.


For visitors who choose to purchase some of the local cheeses, meats or fish, there is a small communal fridge in which guest may store these items.


Breakfast is served in our ground floor restaurant. The breakfast menu includes the finest local produce, including Cumberland sausage, locally cured bacon and local farm eggs. All breakfast dishes are prepared to order.
