Swalcliffe, is a small village in the north of Oxfordshire, England on the edge of the Cotswolds.

There is also a boarding school, Swalcliffe Park School, for boys with special educational needs. Just to the north of the village lie the site of an Iron Age hill fort, Roman villa at Swalcliffe Lea (site only), and line of the old Roman Road, now a bridleway.

For clarification, the message that was sent out through the village email on 26th June using the notice of possible land sale represents the opinion of an individual and not the Parish Council. The statement “In the village survey it showed that there is a need for additional car parking. The area behind the village hall could be used for parking for the people of the parish and for village hall events”, is a private not Parish Council opinion.
