Swallowfield Park
Swallowfield, Berkshire, RG7 1TG

The house at Swallowfield Park designed by William Talman and was erected in 1689 by Henry Hyde, the second Earl of Clarendon. During the 18th Century it belonged to the Pitt family, and then during the 19th Century was owned by the Russell family and remained in their hands until 1965. The site was then owned by the Country Houses Association until it went into voluntary liquidation in 2003, and the house is now a range of luxury private apartments under the management of Swallowfield Park Management (Sunley Holdings).
