The rooms are across a pretty terraced courtyard from the pub. Ours was a good size, very comfortable, and room for our dog. We were able to take her into the pub when we had dinner.

Snape is a 'picture postcard' kind of backwater, that is as English as Yorkshire pud! The Castle Arms nestles in it's midst, as if it grew there. A traditional Yorkshire pub, it retains everything good about the past, yet has everything you expect from a modern inn. The food is very special indeed, the chef has worked around the world... More

The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. The bar has a range of real ales well kept. Roberto, the chef, produced some... More
