Circular Walk

The Circular Walk is a popular Sledmere walk which takes you around the perimeter of the Deer Park and then straight across it.  It is worth noting that to go through the Deer Park, two tall stiles need to be climbed over.  The route can be downloaded below. 

Please note that this walk is closed periodically due to special events and during the rutting season so please call us to check if you are unsure if the walk will be accessible.  The walk will also be closed between 15th and 20th August 2018.  Site works will be going on across a significant part of the route during the two weeks prior to these dates and a week after therefore you may wish to consider alternative Sledmere walks.  Further walk details are available from the Farm Shop.
