The Raithwaite Estate
Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce the beautiful Raithwaite Estate. Every inch the elegant country estate, Raithwaite covers more than 100 acres in Yorkshire’s Whitby and it’s a luxurious retreat designed to impress. Our exquisite collection of cottages combine contemporary features with classic designs, and their guests are free to enjoy time out in the elegant setting of the estate with the privacy of their own space.
The grounds of the estate are dotted with colourful gardens that beg to be explored and path-crossed woodland perfect for those walks where it doesn’t really matter where you end up. There’s a conservatory too, so if you want to just sit back and while away a few hours in the peace and quiet then you’ll be welcome to pick a chair and curl up.
Now what’s a county estate without a spa? Well, the Raithwaite Estate Spa is the only luxury spa in Whitby and is home to a heated pool (a small charge applies), a Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and a gym. Four treatment rooms welcome the weary, and the expert team offer a range of treatments designed to help you drift away from everyday life.
So, whether you book yourself in for some serious pampering during your holiday or you treat that special someone to some time out as a surprise, the spa’s a little slice of bliss in the heart of the estate.
It’s good news for foodies, there are two restaurants on the estate, The Brasserie and Hunters Restaurant, and they both have fantastic reputations for serving up impressive dishes in style. The Brasserie specialises in French brasserie food and those Yorkshire favourites, and what's a Sunday in Yorkshire without a roast dinner?!
Hunters Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in The Keep. With a dramatic glass atrium roof, The Keep’s a light and airy room to dine in, and the Hunters bar’s a popular choice for a relaxed cocktail before dinner. And, for those cream teas, you'll be able to enjoy light lunches and afternoon teas in the Poachers Bar.
With a beautiful setting in the countryside between Whitby and Sandsend, The Raithwaite Estate is every inch the traditional rural escape. With a picturesque lake that’s perfect for quiet walks or lazy days sitting with a book while the ducks glide by on the water, the estate makes a gorgeous spot for a wander when you feel like stretching your legs and enjoying the scenery.
Raithwaite looks breathtaking no matter which time of year you visit too, so it's a popular choice for an escape from the hustle and bustle all year round.
