Snape Village is quiet, beautiful and we are proud to be here.
If you are not local, aside from the obvious reason to visit Snape (to visit us, of course) the village and indeed the whole surrounding area makes for a wonderful day trip for you and the whole family.
Snape Castle in the middle of our village has a long history dating back to the time of King Henry the VIII. The castle being a home of Cathrine Parr, the last wife of the king.
Nearby is Crakehall Watermill and the Thorp Perrow Aboretum. Thorp Perrow Arboretum is one of the finest private collections of trees and shrubs in the country. This 85 acre arboretum is unique to Britain, if not Europe, in that it was the creation of one man, Colonel Sir Leonard Ropner (1895 – 1977) and is now owned and managed by Sir John Ropner.
We are proud to share the village with Carrick’s Fish and The Castle Arms Inn, both thriving small businesses. Less than ten minutes away is the historic market town of Masham, but don’t be fooled by its calm, sleepy atmosphere, this is a buzzing and lively community where a very warm welcome awaits you. If you’re partial to the odd tipple why not head to the Black Sheep brewery where you can take a guided tour and find out how they brew their famous ales.
Located deep in the Yorkshire Dales at High Jervaulx Farm you will find Brymors Ice Cream Parlour. This delicious Ice Cream is produced using only milk from its own herd of pedigree Guernsey cows that graze the lush pastures. Jervalux Abbey, an enchanting, charming and atmospheric ruin, set in the midst of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Jervalux Abbey’s dramatic yet tranquil ambiance has won the hearts of many of its visitors.
