General Information

All White Rose Holiday Cottages are situated in Sleights near Whitby with the exception of Raygill which is situated in Sneaton. Sleights is a residential area approximately 3 miles from Whitby on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. The River Esk runs along the bottom of the valley and the village is situated on its bank sides and the hillsides above, there are many pleasant walks within the village itself and the surrounding area.

The local shops available are a licenced grocery store, "Radfords" - a high class butchers also selling fruit, vegetables, bread, freshly made cakes, puddings and many other items, Bothams Bakers, Post Office, antique shops, garage, the "Plough" pub, fish and chip shop/cafe and 2 doctors surgeries (one at the top of the village, the other at the lower end). Sleights railway station is situated near where the bridge crosses the River Esk, the Salmon Leap Hotel can also be found here. On the other side of the river is the cafe known as the "River Gardens". This is a favourite haunt for many people both local and visitors to have refreshments and maybe a game of putting (golf) and buy some unusual plants from Pat Perry and family (see the map of the village).

The area is steeped in history with such famous people as Captain Cook, St. Hilda and the Abbey, and more recently for the Cleveland Way. Heartbeat is filmed around the area, in particular at Goathland which is known as "Aidensfield" in the TV series.
