The hotel in detail

Surrounded by some of the most picturesque landscapes in the country, Raithwaite Estate is set within 100 acres between the pretty coastal village of Sandsend and Whitby. The Estate’s stunning setting provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy a host of country pursuits including shooting, fishing, walking and even whale watching. Two superb restaurants, the boutique spa and the beautiful 100 year old gardens are just a few of the relaxing distractions.

Raithwaite Estate offers a variety of luxury accommodation, from contemporary club bedrooms to luxurious suites in both The Hall, boasting views of the stunning gardens, and The Keep, a castle shaped icon at the front of the Estate which has 28 exterior facing bedrooms and is home to the UK’s first ever Hotel Dog Spa. The collection of seven beautifully designed one, two and three bedroom stone built cottages boast spacious living areas, fully fitted kitchens and private decking areas. The six bedroom Lake House is the most exclusive way to embrace the tranquillity of the Estate.

The Estate is home to a boutique Spa with four treatment rooms, Brace Restaurant, with an interconnecting conservatory overlooking the gardens, Hunters Lounge at the Keep offering traditional Yorkshire pub classics and Poachers Bar, a lounge bar with an extensive cocktail menu.
