    “The undercroft has a good sense of history, as part of a castle once occupied by Catherine Parr.”

    It is spacious and both bathrooms have good strong showers, with a view of a large ruined tower from the en suite. There is a constant supply of hot water and the master bedroom is very comfortable. With stone-flagged floors and rugs, you are always aware that you are in a castle, while also having good wi fi and two TVs downstairs. You need to go into the courtyard for a mobile signal (but then again the walls are four feet thick!) and the stairs to the upper bedroom are very steep and not ...

    It is spacious and both bathrooms have good strong showers, with a view of a large ruined tower from the en suite. There is a constant supply of hot water and the master bedroom is very comfortable. With stone-flagged floors and rugs, you are always aware that you are in a castle, while also having good wi fi and two TVs downstairs. You need to go into the courtyard for a mobile signal (but then again the walls are four feet thick!) and the stairs to the upper bedroom are very steep and not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The open plan kitchen makes eating in easy, but there is also an excellent pub within walking distance in Snape village and plenty of take-aways a short drive away in Bedale. There are lots of great places to visit nearby. We can recommend the Georgian Theatre tour at Richmond and the lovely small town of Hawes.

The property

Fulfill a childhood fantasy with a stay in this heart-warming wing of the imposing Grade I listed Snape Castle in North Yorkshire, which was the former home of Catherine Parr.

Retaining plenty of character and warmth, The Undercroft is the perfect base for families or couples looking to discover all that North Yorkshire can offer.

The ground floor occupies a cosy open-plan living area graced with a number of welcoming touches, from the exposed beams and stonework to the fabulous woodburning stove and range cooker, giving it a real traditional feel.

Downstairs you will also find the simply wonderful master bedroom, boasting a king-size bed with an en-suite that is bursting with class.

Head upstairs and be presented with a comforting twin bedroom nestling cosily under the eaves, completing the accommodation in a tremendous fashion.

Formal gardens surround the castle, providing a tranquil spot to stroll around to get away from it all, alternatively take a seat on the courtyard garden with a refreshing drink or perhaps treat yourself to an alfresco meal.

Snape is a peaceful village tucked in the North Yorkshire countryside, offering a highly-regarded gastropub.

Just three miles North sits the market town of Bedale, housing a range of amenities to make the most of.

From here you can also visit other attractive spots such as Thirsk and Darlington.

Countryside lovers can take a trip to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you can enjoy a plethora of walking and cycling opportunities, as well as some quaint little villages to be explored.

A unique property in a fabulous rural location.

About the location

SNAPE, YORKSHIRE

Bedale 3 miles; Thirsk 14 miles; Darlington 21 miles

A historic village beautifully placed in between the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks and provides a high-quality gastropub. Snape is home to a Grade I listed 15th century castle which was once the home of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr. The village also has the 18th century Thorp Perrow. Nearby you can easily reach the well-stocked market town of Bedale, providing a wealth of amenities to set you up for your break, as well as a golf course and a museum. Thirsk is also nearby, offering some fine architecture, as does Darlington just over 20 miles north, a large market town with elite shopping. The two National Parks nearby are both havens for outdoor lovers, with the most astounding far-reaching views from a variety of walking and cycling paths.
