The village is referred to in the Domesday Book as "Sidingale", in the hundred of Burghshire in the West Riding, and the lord and tenant in chief is noted as the king.[2] In Kirkby's Inquest (1284-5) the village is referred to as Siclinghalle ; in the Knights' Fees of 1302 it is Sykelynghall, and in the Nomina Villarum (1315) it is written Sigglinghall.[3]

The main amenities in the village are St Peter's Church,[4] The Scott's Arms (a pub),[5] a primary school and a village hall.

There has been a school in the village of Sicklinghall since at least 1850 when Mrs Fenton Scott of Woodhall built a single storey school house.[6]

The village is surrounded by granges: on the eastern side lie Skerry Grange and Sicklinghall Grange and on the western Addlethorpe Grange. Sicklinghall Grange is set in a Script error: No such module "convert". estate, it is the UK residence of racehorse owner, Sir Robert Ogden.[7] However the 'big house' is Stockeld Park, formerly a hunting lodge of the nearby Harewood estate and now at the centre of a network of tenanted farms.

As with many Yorkshire villages, Sicklinghall has a wide range of equestrian-related centres in and around the village's centre, with the Sicklinghall Park livery located in the village centre, and Hill Croft Farm Riding Stables located about Script error: No such module "convert". west of the village on the road towards Kirkby Overblow.

There is also a Roman Catholic monastery dating from 1852.

Sicklinghall has a cricket team playing in the local Wetherby Cricket League. The ground is situated at the top of the village, the club having moved from nearby Stockeld Park in 2002.
