Sleights Barn is a semi-detached, two-storey cottage, next to the owner’s home, which was once the old barn of Sleights Farm. Set on the owner’s arable farm, there is a lovely outdoor area to the rear, perfect for a relaxing drink after a day exploring, two comfortable bedrooms and a light and airy living/dining room, ideal for making plans for your next adventure. Located in a lovely setting, there is a lovely park perfect for the children, as well as a village shop and a couple of pubs serving great food in the village. Sleights Barn is perfectly situated for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and The North York Moors National Park, and is served by a fantastic transport link (A1 and A19) making it easy to get out and about.
The National Parks are a walker’s and natural beauty lover’s paradise, with some amazing scenery to enjoy, from Sutton Bank and its white cliffs to stunning waterfalls. There is an abundance of nearby market towns and villages such as Northallerton and Thirsk (known as James Herriot country). For a different kind of travel, you can catch a steam train from Pickering or Goathland in the North York Moors, across to the wonderful fishing village of Whitby (seasonal), with its ancient abbey and 3 miles of golden beaches along the Yorkshire Heritage Coast. The city of Ripon, situated on the River Ure, is a beautiful market town that was founded over 1,300 years ago and is famous as an old cathedral city where monasteries have stood since the 7th century. It comes alive with a regular market, and the back streets are buzzing with local cafés and shops. Head towards Knaresborough, and you will find Mother Shipton’s Cave and petrifying well, which is England’s oldest visitor attraction, having been open since 1630!
There is so much to do for the whole family within a short drive, such as Brimham Rocks (National Trust), an amazing collection of weird and wonderful rock formations to explore and makes a great day out for families, climbers and those wanting to enjoy the simple pleasures of fresh air and magnificent views over Nidderdale. Alternatively, Lightwater Valley Theme Park, with over 40 attractions all set within 167 acres of gorgeous North Yorkshire countryside, has rides for all ages, from the underground world of Raptor Attack to a tractor ride around Eagle’s Creek Farm, home to lovable kunekune pigs, pygmy goats and valley stalwart, Poppy the donkey. You can even set your little mites free in the Angry Birds Activity Park with over 3,000 sq ft of interactive fun.
The walled city of York is just 40 minutes away by car, where you can stroll around the wall or visit the National Railway Museum. The Georgian town of Richmond is great for a night out, with its live bands every Saturday night and its modern gastro pubs and bistros. There really is so much to see and do, from unspoilt natural beauty to stunning man-made architecture, including Beningbrough Hall and Gardens and the Newby Estate with its mini train. Beach 34 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
Sleights Barn can be booked together with Sleights Cottage (CC233097) to accommodate up to 8 guests.
