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. There are some lovely panoramic views over the village and surrounding hills to be enjoyed from the upper floors. The house has been refurbished and furnished with loving care and offers all modern comforts, yet retains a lot of character and period features such as cast-iron tiled fireplaces and wooden beams.
The property is ideal for families, especially family reunions, and train enthusiasts, and it is pet friendly. Honeypot House is located close to the centre of the village and its shops. It is also near the small and charming village railway station located on the picturesque Esk Valley line where, in addition to passing steam train running between Whitby and Pickering, guests can board local services to access other beautiful villages and walking country across the North York Moors.
Sleights has an award-winning butcher, local bakery, a popular fish & chip shop, grocery store and a vibrant local pub.

Lovely house in a lovely area. Spent a week during lots and still feel there is so much more to do
Lovely break in a beautiful house , very well equipped and comfortable Fan oven is better than conventional we will return
Honeypot house well exceeded our expectations. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need and the decor was beautiful. We loved the location and watching the Steam Trains go by at the weekend. We will be visiting again!
The house and all the facilities top class! We enjoy our stay very much and the kitchen facilities meant we could eat in every night , I would recommend the walk along the beach from Sandsend to Whitby make sure the tide is out. We will be back
We all love the house and the location, we came for a short break at half term and wished we had booked for longer. Couldn't fault anything. Excellent
Loved staying here. Beds were comfy and it felt so cosy and homelike. Especially loved the location - hearing nothing but birds, horses hooves and the sound of the train so restful. Will be back very soon
Gorgeous house and brilliant location! We all enjoyed the steam trains! Great facilities in the kitchen - you have thought of everything. Overall a fantastic stay - we will be back
What a fantastic 'home' and location. Wonderful to be so close to anything from Robin Hoods Bay to Whitby - by car or short train journey. Will be back as soon as we can
We all have had a wonderful Easter break thank you. The house is amazing . So welcoming, warm, clean and tidy. Having the steam train coming and going was a delight. Beautiful place
Fantastic location, so much to do and see. The home is very comfortable we slept well, a real home from home. Look forward to returning soon.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay in such a beautiful house. The log burner was very inviting after a breezy walk along the moors and the beds were very comfy - we will be returning!
