We have a lovely new stockist here at Myroo and I was lucky enough to visit last week.
Sledmere House is a beautiful stately home is just 7 miles northwest of Driffield, a scenic 25 mile drive from York, 19 miles from Scarborough and just 10 miles from Beverley. It's a bit of a best kept secret for those of who don't live nearby but it is well worth a visit. Not least for the wonderful skincare products in the newly refurbished gift shop!
The house is still used by the Sykes family and as such has a lovely welcoming feel to it. It's one of the nicest houses I've visited. The library is stunning (the picture in the header of this blog post shows a tiny bit of the ceiling) and the Turkish Room a little gem of a surprise.
The grounds are simply stunning and I fell a bit in love with the walled garden. It reminded me of the Secret Garden.
There's so much to do for families, including an adventure playground, lovely walks and a fantastic tea shop. The afternoon tea looked very special indeed.
There are also some very happy and healthy looking animals and you can brush the pig and cuddle the lambs.
The admission costs are really reasonable and you could easily fill and full day out.
