The hotel in detail

Surrounded by some of the most picturesque landscapes in the country, The Raithwaite Estate is a new hotel development with contemporary styling and clean lines, set in 100 acres of beautifully-kept gardens and woodland. It is set between the pretty coastal village of Sandsend and Whitby with its historic harbour. The Estate’s stunning setting provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy a host of country pursuits including shooting, fishing and walking while two superb restaurants, a spa and pool are just a few of the relaxing distractions.

The Raithwaite Estate offers a wide choice of options from Club rooms to the luxurious suites, each individually styled in a blend of contemporary and classic design. Should you wish to bring along your dog, then the Deluxe rooms in the Courtyard and ground floor Club rooms in The Keep are specifically designed with that in mind. The Keep houses a further 28 bedrooms as well as the Hunters Bar & Restaurant with outside seating. Here the luxurious theme and décor is continued, with an added contemporary twist. Guestrooms are spread over three floors, with a mezzanine balcony of glass and chrome overlooking the central bar and lounge area. A sheer glass roof blesses the space with warmth and light flooding the room.

Wander around the grounds of The Raithwaite Estate along the footpaths and admire the beautifully maintained gardens. Discover the millstreams, the waterfall, and the woods, a haven for wildlife. Stroll down to the sea and on to the pretty village of Sandsend. Following a day of country sports, relax in the Poacher’s Bar with a drink or two and then dine in Brace Restaurant on meat and seafood, bought from local suppliers each morning.
