Swainby Country Park is small, peaceful and secluded. It is situated in the heart of Swainby Village and surrounded by picturesque National Park moorland: the ideal spot to spend time relaxing and recharging your batteries. Swainby Country Park, first became a holiday park in the 1930s, when the original accommodations were less than salubrious, amounting to little more than large garden sheds.
When the park was acquired by the Maguire family in 2008 there were few creature comforts here: no electricity, mains water or drainage, and the sheep were the natural lawn mowers! Fast forward to present day and Swainby Country Park is now a nature lovers paradise with some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK right on its doorstep. In the village of Swainby and the surrounding area you will find everything you need to make your stay perfect.

Sion Hill Hall Birds Of Prey in Thirsk is a must see for animal lovers and Big Sheep and Little Cow Farm in Beadle is a lovely day out for families. If you prefer a spot of shopping, nearby Yarm High Street is full of quirky boutiques and well known chains.
Situated in the breath taking surrounds of the North York Moors National Park, Swainby is a walkers paradise, so be sure to pack some suitable walking shoes when you visit.
We recommend packing a picnic and climbing up Roseberry Topping, or taking a stroll along The Cleveland Way.
The park’s surrounding landscape of traditional Yorkshire dry stone walls and sweeping heather moorland crossed by some of England’s finest long-distance footpaths, makes Swainby a firm favourite with ramblers, riders, cyclists and day visitors.
The Cleveland Way passes through the village and the 40-mile Lyke Wake Walk, which crosses the moors from Osmotherly to Ravenscar, begins nearby.
