About the location


Whitby 3 miles; Scarborough 21 miles.

The small rural village of Sneaton lies in an elevated position, just 3 miles from Whitby, and 21 miles from Scarborough. Pretty stone cottages line the main street, and the local pub - a traditional inn, with a welcoming open fire and beamed ceilings - offers excellent local fayre. Close by is Beacon Farm, which produces wonderful ice cream and also has a tea room and farm shop. Sneaton is a wonderful location for walkers, and numerous public footpaths can be found around the village, notably the Monks Trod; an ancient stone path that monks followed to worship at Whitby Abbey. Down the road lies the village of Ruswarp, where visitors can go boating on the River Esk, make use of the small golf course, or visit the locally renowned butcher’s shop. The famous fishing port of Whitby is only a short drive away, with its cobbled streets and alleys, good beaches, excellent restaurants, and array of cafes. A must for any holidaymaker!
