Where you’ll be

North Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom

Welcome to the heart of North Yorkshire - to Ryedale and our home village of Slingsby.

The village is on the edge of the Howardian Hills area of outstanding natural beauty, and it provides the ideal base for touring, walking, cycling and exploring the picturesque villages, stately homes and attractions nearby.

In Slingsby you will find a children's play park, and a popular pub The Grapes Inn serving home-cooked food.

Two miles away in Hovingham you will find a village shop, bakery, gastropub, and hotel with a restaurant and bar meals.

The nearest town is Malton, 6 miles away, where you'll find a supermarket, local shops, a doctors' surgery and other amenities. It's got a growing foodie scene and is known as 'Yorkshire' s food capital' with regular markets, a very popular food-lovers festival, and some great independent food producers.

The market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Pickering and Helmsley are also nesrby; and the stately home Castle Howard - best known as Brideshead in the TV and film versions of Brideshead Revisited - is only three miles away.

York, the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Wolds, and the East Coast are also within easy reach.
