Things to see and do

Slate Rigg Farm is quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of main roads but handy enough to the main towns around us. Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon are only 15 minutes away, whilst York, Leeds and Skipton are 40 minutes away.

Ripley Blues Club

We’re very lucky at Ripley, to have a Blues Club which supports live music.  As we are in walking distance from the village (granted its up hill coming home – but it will do you good!) we make an ideal weekend break for you to treat yourselves to see some special live music bands.
