Description

Situated in the popular village of Sleights near Whitby, Honeypot House is a beautiful period property with an attractive garden to the front, where you can sit and watch the steam trains go by. This large and stylish Victorian house, set over three floors, has a spacious kitchen and dining room, a separate living room, four really good-sized bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Sleights has an award-winning butcher, local bakery, a popular fish & chip shop, grocery store and a vibrant local pub.
