Days and stays of unforgettable bliss are waiting for you at the gorgeous Raithwaite Sandsend, a stunning retreat on the picturesque North Yorkshire coast. Peace and quiet abound here, bringing you a golden opportunity to get away from it all in the hotel itself or in the quaint stone cottages which are a particularly pleasing feature of the venue.

The attractive historic town of Whitby is nearby, and the dramatic North Yorkshire and Cleveland Coast is a must-visit. Inland, you’ll find the iconic beauty of the North York Moors National Park, which provides the perfect spot for some exploration. Alternatively, stay at Raithwaite and explore the 100 acres of gorgeous countryside which surrounds it. 

For the ultimate relaxation, be sure to visit the spa, where four sublime treatment rooms and an air of tranquillity are waiting to wow you. The Sandsend is perfect for overnight getaways, with more than 70 bedrooms and eight superb cottages to offer you. And make sure you sample the delights in the Brasserie during your time here.

There’s a tempting range of treatments to choose from, designed to leave you completely and utterly indulged. Later, why not treat yourself to yet more ‘You Time’ amid the soothing waters of the swimming pool.

Please note: During School Holidays, there may be restrictions within The Spa where adults are not permitted in The Spa during afternoon Splash Times.

The Workout

As you might expect from such an idyllic setting, lovely long walks are a must-try when you’re in the area. The glorious countryside of the North York Moors National Park and the fabulous sandy beaches lend themselves perfectly to walking, running and cycling.

And if you prefer to test your golfing skills instead, there’s an excellent course to be savoured at nearby Whitby. The views have to be experienced to be believed.

We bought the Taster Combo (full day at spa, afternoon tea & 2 x 30 min treatments) and it was just brilliant. Everything we wanted and needed, totally worth the 1.5 hrs drive during storm Ciara :) Will definitely go again and without a doubt use SpaSeekers' services again.

I booked the sparkling twilight package for myself and my sister and we had a lovely time, the staff were so friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean and it was excellent value for money, my sister wanted to buy some products and the friendly staff bent over backwards to help her, will definitely book again.

Having spent the last few months working on a large and stressful project, I was desperate for a long weekend in the countryside, and I couldn’t have picked a better venue than the Raithwaite Estate. As soon I arrived, I knew I’d be able to relax, and that started from the very first moment. It’s really tranquil there, and a walk around the grounds was all I needed to forget all about everything else. The spa was gorgeous, and I treated myself to a couple of fab treatments. The Brasserie was something else, and my bedroom couldn’t have been more comfortable. Next time I get stressed out, I’ll be going back to Raithwaite for more of the same.
