Swanton Hall has been sensitively refurbished, to preserve the attractive baroque architecture. Landscaped gardens add a further grandeur to the exterior.

Celebrating the historic importance of the property a keystone remains above the front door, inscribed with the date 1719. It's believed the original foundations of the house may have even earlier mid 17th century origins, adding to its heritage.
