Encompassing several properties offering hotel and cottage accommodation, the Raithwaite Estate feels like a rural resort in its own right. It is set back from the beautiful Yorkshire coast, just a mile from the pretty fishing village of Sandsend and around 2.5 miles from the restaurants, galleries and boutiques of Whitby. The atmospheric remains of Whitby Abbey, which inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula can be reached by climbing 199 steps from the town -- from the abbey there are far-reaching views of the coast and countryside.
The 100-acre estate is well placed for exploring the North York Moors National Park and for outdoor pursuits such as horse riding, cycling and walking. Golfers can tee off at nearby Whitby Golf Club, an 18-hole cliff-top course with views of the coast.
The pet-friendly estate has two spas, one of which is for dogs -- it offers a variety of treatments to relax and energise canine companions. The other more traditional spa has a heated pool that overlooks the gardens and the stream, plus a steam room, a Jacuzzi and a gym.
There are several restaurants and bars, including Hunters Lounge, an informal space serving Yorkshire pub favourites, and Poachers Bar, which serves drinks, light lunches and afternoon tea. The smart Brace Restaurant uses fresh local produce to create British cuisine with a European influence. There's also a pleasant conservatory that looks onto the 100-year-old gardens.
There are a variety of different accommodation types on the estate, from hotel rooms in The Hall, The Keep and The Courtyard, to self-catering cottages with woodland views and open fireplaces, and a 6-bedroom house with lake and countryside views. There is pet- and family-friendly accommodation.
