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

Visiting Sledmere

Sledmere is a jewel nestling at the heart of a beautiful traditional English Country Estate where visitors have been welcomed by the Sykes family for over 250 years. Situated in the centre of the Yorkshire Wolds here is a place to eat, shop, walk, cycle or immerse oneself in charms of stunning gardens, explore the stables (which are once again home to working horses) and on certain days to soak up the atmosphere of a much loved ‘stately’ home.
