Brand-new 2-, 3- and 4-bed homes coming soon to Morton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire, close to Richmond and Northallerton.

Morton-on-Swale is a large village located in North Yorkshire on the A684 road 4 miles west of the County Town of Northallerton and less than 1 mile to the village of Ainderby Steeple. As the name suggests, it lies on the River Swale.

There are 2 village schools: Ainderby Steeple Church of England Primary School, which, notwithstanding its name, is situated on Station Lane in Morton and is within the catchment area of nearby Northallerton School, which provides secondary education and sixth form facilities.

This is in addition to The Dales School, which is a special co-educational school aiding with cognition and learning for those with severe and complex learning requirements.

The village hall still hosts regular meetings by a range of voluntary groups. The Grade II Listed building was originally a Wesleyan Chapel, founded in 1815, but which ceased to function as such in 1928. The United Methodist Free Church, founded in 1879, finally closed its doors in 2002, and, after a brief spell as an antique retail showroom, the building has since been converted into a private dwelling, but still remains a well-known local landmark.

There is also a public house, The Old Royal George and a well-stocked village shop. A mobile Post Office van visits the village once a week. The play park, which opened in 2017, is widely regarded as being one of the finest in the area.

The village is served by an hourly bus service in both directions, which runs weekly between Bedale and Northallerton.

Morton-on-Swale is conveniently close to the towns of Northallerton and Richmond, which offer additional amenities, historical sites (like Richmond Castle) and plentiful opportunities for shopping, dining and entertainment.

Overall, Morton-on-Swale is a delightful village that embodies the charm and character of rural North Yorkshire living, making it the perfect place for residents and visitors alike.
