Swaledale is a breed of domestic sheep named after the Yorkshire valley of Swaledale in England. They are found throughout the more mountainous areas of Great Britain, but particularly in the Yorkshire Dales, County Durham, and around the pennine fells of Cumbria.

They are used for the production of lamb/mutton, the North of England Mule sheep, and as Pedigree breeding stock.
