Burton Agnes Hall

Burton Agnes Hall is a magnificent example of late Elizabethan architecture, lived in by descendents of the original family, the home is filled with treasures accumulated over 4 centuries, from the magnificent carvings commissioned by the first owners to the modern French and English paintings of the Impressionist schools collections in recent years.
The Gardens Offer Something for everyone, from the ardent enthusiast who will enjoy identifying over 3,000 different plants, to the young at heart who can solve the 'Riddle of the Maze', get lost in the jungle, and play giant board games in the Coloured Gardens.

Cruckley Animal Farm

Do something different - take the kids to see a real working, family farm. The children will be fascinated to see the newborn baby animals and the fluffy chicks and ducklings. If you have an interest in conservation and breeding then you may be interested to see the very rare White Park cattle and the Grey Faced Dartmoor sheep with their distinctive long woolly coats that are used for carpet making.


There are seven rare breeds of pigs here, including the primitive Tamworth pig. There is also a farm shop where you can buy food to feed the animals, amongst many other things. The farm welcomes school trips; all in all it will be an interesting and informative day out for the whole family.

Sledmere House

The Yorkshire Wolds Premier Stately Home

There has been a manor house at Sledmere since medieval times. The present house was built in 1751 by Sir Christopher Sykes 2nd Baronet. Sir Christopher employed fellow Yorkshireman Joseph Rose, the most famous English plasterer of his day, to execute the decoration of Sledmere. Rose's magnificent work, unique in his career, and parkland planned by 'Capability Brown', have combined to create one of Yorkshire's hidden treasures.
The gardens and parkland can offer enjoyment for all, from the beautiful 18th Century walled Rose Garden and recently laid out knot-garden, to the acres of open space and woodland. Enjoy a leisurely stroll, long walk or just a relaxing summer picnic in the grounds along with the grazing deer nearby.

Enter the Staircase Hall to the sound of Sledmere's *pipe organ and see the splendid collections of furnishings in the Chippendale French and Adam styles. The rooms have a warm 'lived in feel' because this is still the home of Sir Tatton Sykes.

When the need for refreshment arises try something different in the Bistro-Cafe', anything from a light snack to a delicious meal, before you move on to the Exhibition Centre, Waggoners Museum, the village, Monuments and Church
