About Rother Valley View

The picturesque Rother Valley Country Park, only minutes away either by foot or car, is a renowned venue for many recreational activities including water sports, cycling and walking as well as being a nature reserve and home to many different species of wildlife.

Easily accessible, we are located just 1 mile from junction 31 M1 and close to many links into Sheffield and Rotherham. We are an ideal central hub for the South Yorkshire area.

Located within a collection of 3 villages called "Aston-cum-Aughton", our village is delightfully named "Swallownest" presumed after local farmer Nathaniel Swallow in the 1740s. The farm house remained standing until 2006 when it was removed for development.
