Expedia / Hotels.com list this Village Inn as "Fabulous" and no matter what websites you follow, every customer review is outstanding. We stayed for two nights with our little dog, "Paddy",and would add to the long list of customers who give this beautiful Public House and Accommodation 10/10 for everything. From the warm welcome on checking in to the delicious...

We booked on a deal and stayed two nights. We really enjoyed our stay, the room was clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. The breakfast was faultless and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Castle Arms.

My wife and I enjoyed a two night visit to this country pub in the interesting village of Snape which is located between Bedale and Masham. The warmth shown by the licensee Ian, and his wife Lisa was in the best traditions of Yorkshire hospitality. We enjoyed the company of other visitors and locals who had interesting tales to tell....

Highly recommend this pub for a weekend away from it all. The food was excellent, the room was comfortable and the service could not be faulted. The village of Snape, with the castle at the top, is idyllic and Thorp Perrow, also recommended, is about a minute’s drive away. We really forgot about the world for a while!

Not your usual run of the mill pub grub it was far superior to that. The service was fast and polite in very welcoming surroundings, I would recommend anybody to try it just first class! Oh and we got to meet Riley the dog who owns the pub :)

My husband and i stayed for one night in February. The room was very comfortable, well equipped, clean and warm. We decided to have our evening meal there and it was lovely, well cooked, plenty to choose from and friendly staff. Breakfast was just as good. We will go back for another visit and would recommend it.

Went to the CA for a couple of nights. We felt welcome from the start, the place was warm and cosy even thought it was down at zero when we arrived. Our room had everything we required, it was clean, warm, had a bath and shower, tea and coffee facilities etc. Our evening meal was excellent, along with great service...
