Bringing the best of Art, History, Architecture & Gardens to Life

Sledmere House & Gardens

There is something about the charm of Sledmere which has captivated visitors for over 200 years. Whether you just want a relaxing day looking around the gardens enjoying lunch in the Terrace Café or want to look at fine examples of art and architecture there is something for everyone at Sledmere.

Designed by Samuel Wyatt and Sir Christopher Sykes, 2nd baronet and nurtured by successive generations, this very special place brings new devotees every year.

Sledmere is a Georgian House – and it is also an Edwardian House. Sir Christopher Sykes, 2nd baronet, rebuilt and redecorated the house in the 1790s, but in 1911 it was almost completely destroyed by fire. Fortunately most of the contents were rescued and they can still be seen on view today. It is worth a visit just to see the splendour of Joseph Rose’s plasterwork and the fine examples of furniture by Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton.
