The Rural Estate at Swinton is situated close to the market town of Masham and has been in the ownership of the Cunliffe-Lister family since the 1880s.

It extends from the River Ure across 20,000 acres of rural hill farming countryside up onto the moorland Yorkshire Dales.

About two thirds of the land is farmland and forestry and one third open moorland, and the vast majority of the Estate sits within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and borders the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
