Fern Lea description

Located in the village of Sleights and just 4 miles from the centre of Whitby, this imposing semi-detached Edwardian villa is ideally located for exploring both the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Heritage Coast.The house offers superb views over Esk Valley and is an ideal base for a family holiday or to celebrate a special occasion, with much to do and see around the area. Just 6 miles from the property brings you into the village of Goathland, made famous by the TV series ‘Heartbeat’. From here you can board the North Yorkshire Moors steam train and take a memorable journey through the glorious Esk Valley, arriving in the market town of Pickering. Walking enthusiasts will love the bridle paths and walkways which abound from the door. The North Yorkshire Moors is home to many quaint villages with inns and tea rooms tucked away deep in the valley awaiting discovery. The village of Ruswarp is within walking distance and makes a great day out by the river with boating opportunities, garden tea rooms, a miniature railway and a rare plants centre. Whitby hosts many festivals throughout the year with Goth weekend, folk weeks and 60’s festivals, when the town comes alive with visitors from far and wide. A 3 mile stretch of sandy beach, a colourful harbour, a marina, the famous St Mary’s Church and the 12th century abbey ruins, alleyways and ginnels lined with quaint little cottages complete the picture. A little further to the south is the more elegant seaside town of Scarborough with an eclectic mix of shopping, museums, art galleries, some fine dining restaurants and the North and South Bays boasting fine sandy beaches, fun fairs, amusement arcades and donkey rides on the beach. The minster city of York is approximately an hour’s drive and well worth a visit. Historic homes, halls and castles are plentiful in this part of North Yorkshire and are easily reached.
