History
Earlier House(s) / Building(s)
The Grade II* 17th century Swarland Old Hall is a small house (currently used for self catering holiday accommodation) that incorporates parts of earlier houses. It served as the manor house before Swarland Hall was built in the 18th century; it was the seat of de Haslerigg family since the Norman Conquest.

House & Family History
John Carr of York's only known Northumberland works were Swarland Park and Chesters (1771). Richard Grieve purchased Swarland in 1753; his son, Davidson Richard Grieve, inherited the estate in 1765 and rebuilt the House. His trustees sold the House in 1793 to Alexander Davison (Davison was a confidant and agent of Lord Nelson). The Davison family were seated at the House until the mid-19th century. Colliery owners purchased Swarland in 1922 and used the Estate to house miners (pigs were kept in bedrooms of the House). The Fountains Abbey Settlers Society purchased the House in 1934; Swarland was in the hands of house-breakers the same year.
