The Hall was built in 1863 to host meetings of the Oddfellows Society and comprised two cottages with a meeting hall above.
Recent renovation has made it a very attractive venue with a picturesque outloook overlooking the stream, which runs through the village, and the hills opposite.
There are 3 rooms available for hire, one small room which can accommodate around 15 people is used as a Post Office each Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon.
A second, larger room can hold up to 50 people, depending on how seating is arranged. The upstairs hall is fitted with a stage and can seat up to around 100. A very well appointed kitchen is located on the ground floor, as are the toilets.
Someone recently described Swainby Village Hall as: “This fine Victorian building, ideally situated in the centre of the village, looking up to Whorl Hill”
