I have been visiting Whitby for the last 20 years but had not discovered Sneaton Castle until this weekend, when I came across it whilst making a last minute booking. I'm so glad I booked there. From the moment I turned into the driveway I was impressed by the majestic grounds and lovely buildings. The gardens are beautifully kept and the new buildings have been designed in keeping with the old parts.
Our room was in St Francis and was warm, spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable. We had a view across the rear gardens to the moors, which was lovely. There is plenty of parking, too. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was served in the main refectory and there was plenty of choice.
I would say this would be a perfect spot for walkers. It is about a mile from the centre of Whitby but is in a great location for getting around the local area. It's far enough away to not be woken up by seagulls first thing in the morning, too.
