Swaleview Park really is in a unique location, nestled at the head of the Swale Valley, yet only minutes from the pretty market town of Richmond and only 15 minutes from main road routes. Travel on foot, by bike or by car in any direction from The Park and you’ll find yourself amongst some of the UK’s most beautiful countryside. Swaleview Park is the perfect base for exploring this beautiful part of North Yorkshire. The route of the 2014 Tour De France passes close by and the famous long distance walks of the Coast to Coast and Pennine Way both cross this beautiful part of the world. Members who enjoy fishing can enjoy a day’s angling on the River Swale as part of their membership fees. For the less energetic, there are leisurely strolls by the river and a chance to relax and unwind. The Park is a haven for birds and wildlife and the perfect place to be closer to nature.
