What’s on in Swaledale this Christmas…









The festive season is almost here and where better to spend time than in Swaledale.  Whether that’s a winter walk along the river, singing carols on Reeth Village Green or just warming up by the fire in a country pub.  Owners at Swaleview Park are just minutes away from beautiful countryside, pretty villages and lots of things to see and do.  Here’s some of the events happening in Swaledale over the holiday break:

Reeth Christmas Shopping Event –  Sunday 7th December 10am – 4pm.  Carol singing round the Christmas tree, home made mince pies and roasted chestnuts, Christmas Quiz Trail and unqiue boutique shops for the perfect gift.
