Sleights is ideal for both a coastal and country holiday. Just 4 miles from the picturesque Yorkshire coastline, it is also on the edge of dramatic moors country, littered with attractive villages and scenery.

The North Yorkshire Steam Railway terminus is a few minutes’ drive, together with regular public transport to and from the nearby port of Whitby. Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk and is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire. It is an atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches and, of course, the abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps.

Previous visitors' comments about Monkey Puzzle Place:
The cottage was close to the local shops and amenities. The property was very warm and cosy and the beds are very comfortable.
Mr Rumfitt, Chester Le Street, March 2013
I enjoyed my holiday. The Monkey Puzzle Place was a base for what we needed to do. It was nice, clean, most things was there, bed was comfy, it was nice.
Ms Redman, Doncaster, September 2012
This cottage was set up perfectly for what we needed. We had myself and husband in 1 double room with our son opposite, my parents in the other double and my husbands mum and aunt in the twin room. Cottage was very comfortable, particularly the beds.
Mrs Whitby, Hull, September 2012
The property was better than described, the location was perfect for getting around the local area and the owners were very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to stay in this particular cottage again.
