Sledmere Park & House

  • Explore the grounds of a Georgian House
  • Deer, gardens and woodland
  • Sledmere village is worthy of a closer look

Sledmere House is a beautiful old country house and a walk in the area is very pleasant. The grounds full of deer, the house and side buildings well kept but, because the house is set on steeper slopes, then there are some outstanding views from the woods to the south.

It is a walk to take your time over and explore (for example there is the burial lands for the family dogs over the centuries!) The house itself is described as part Georgian, part Edwardian and is the one of the best of its type. It is worth buying the ‘House and Grounds’ ticket

Do not get over excited by Sledmere Castle, it is not a castle. 

Recommend: Take your time in the grounds and enjoy the life of a country squire…for the day.
