Sleningford Watermill 2018

Sleningford Watermill Caravan & Camping Park – Activities


The River Ure provides the focus for the majority of activities at Sleningford Watermill, particularly canoeing, kayaking and fly-fishing. However, the park is also popular with walkers as there is a network of footpaths in the area and the 50 mile circular Ripon Rowel Walk runs through the park itself.

In the Ripon/Masham area, there are plenty of footpaths and enjoyable walks (The Sanctuary Cross walk in Ripon and the Mosaic Walk starting at Kirkby Malzeard moor are just two). We stock OS maps and walking guides in the Shop. Further afield, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors provide plenty of walking opportunities.

The county of Yorkshire offers great opportunities for the cyclist, with great varieties of terrain and attractions. In North Yorkshire, there is a circular route of 33 miles (53km) taking the cyclist through Knaresborough, Kirkby Malzeard and Ripon (details can be found in ‘Great Cycle Routes Yorkshire’). Dalby Forest near Pickering has a number of cycling routes (as well as walks) suitable for all abilities.

There are many tourist attractions a short drive away from Sleningford and our Information room provides a wealth of leaflets, guides, posters and discount vouchers for local venues including Lightwater Valley Theme Park which is just 2 miles away.
