Where is Sledmere House?

Sledmere House is in the north of the East Riding of Yorkshire, only a short drive from Driffield and about an hour from York.

They also have other attractions such as the Wagoners Museum, the circular walk the stables, a rare breeds park, a playground and, of course, the house itself! The Museum tells the story of the Wagoner’s special reserve and would be interesting for all ages. The stables and rare breeds conservation farm park are a great place to get up close and personal with lots of beautiful native farm breeds such as rare horses, sheep and pigs! The circular walk is a great way to get your boots on and get a view of Sledmere House from a distance making it a great way to get a bit of exercise and and get some good photos in the Yorkshire countryside.
