Sledmere House

Details

There is something about the charm of Sledmere which has captivated visitors for over 200 years. Carefully designed by Sir Christopher Sykes, 2nd Baronet, and nurtured by successive generations, this very special place brings new devotees every year.

Jealously guarded, but hard not to share, the atmosphere is informal, the landscape breathtaking and the welcome warm and friendly. Gardeners, antique and architecture lovers, walkers, bird watchers, military enthusiasts, photographers, painters and music buffs all seem instantly at home.

Our Terrace Cafe has a justifiable reputation for a delicious range of home cooked foods and our staff take great pride in maintaining the Sledmere tradition of fine hospitality. Local produce is used wherever possible and we are sure there will always be something to tempt you. No visit to Sledmere would be complete without a browse around our well stocked gift shop. For 2009 we have selected many new ranges of china, books and stationary, food and other quality gifts.

For 2009 our range of top quality plants is expanding again with an even wider choice at very competitive prices.

Sledmere has a history as a House filled with music. The famous pipe organ is played on Wednesday and Sunday 13:30 to 15:30. You are welcome to stay and listen for as long as you wish.

2009 sees the opening of our new and enlarged playground situated adjacent to the picnic area. An in-house quiz for children makes the visit interesting and memorable.

The delightful park walk takes you around the perimeter of the park, where you can see the red deer bred on the estate. Sledmere is also an ideal base for exploring the Wolds.

Entertaining and informative; our guided tours can be booked in advance (groups of 15 plus) £5.50pp.

Sledmere House provides a wonderful venue for weddings, conferences and many other special occasions. We take pride in offering a custom made package to meet your own special requirements. The House and Grounds are not normally open to visitors on Saturdays allowing weddings and other parties to enjoy private and exclusive use.
