A country retreat with tempting spa facilities and award-winning dining in North Yorkshire's picturesque countryside - spa extras and an optional dinner included

The Lowdown

Follow in the famous footsteps of Captain James Cook and Bram Stoker’s Dracula with a weekend in Whitby and you’ll see why so many have flocked to this North Yorkshire port for more than 1,000 years. While a trip to Whitby’s Raithwaite Estate may be more country retreat than Gothic tale nowadays, you can still Count (pardon the pun) on heart-stopping Yorkshire scenery and excellent service.
Set in Raithwaite Estate’s own 100 acres, Raithwaite Estate is a truly picturesque spot. Pampering is high on the agenda with a heated pool, an indulgent treatment menu and even a dog spa. To take advantage of the North Yorkshire Moors, horse riding, mountain biking and guided walks are also available. Alternatively, you can simply enjoy the views or tuck into the best food the region has to offer in the award-winning restaurant.

This is a great hotel with good facilities, a selection of eating areas with excellent food. The spa area is good. The gardens are lovely and there his a woodland that you stroll around. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble, they are very friendly and interact with you. I would very much recommend this hotel.

The Raithwaite is an excellent place to stay with beautiful walks around the gardens and along the beach to either Whitby or Sandsend. We found the whole stay an enjoyable experience, with plenty to see and discover in the area. The Raithwaite complements this area of North Yorkshire which is a truly unspoilt part of the country.

Excellent customer service
Reviewed 1 day ago

We have previously been to the hotel. The room standards have always been good, however we have had some issues with the service.
This time the standards of service, in particular from reception were excellent. They went out of their way to accommodate us.
I would reccomend the hotel whole heartedly.
