Raithwaite Sandsend – NR Whitby, Yorkshire
Ideally located between the sweep of Sandsend beach and the wilds of the North York Moors, Raithwaite Sandsend is a relaxing coastal retreat. Stylish, newly refurbished bedrooms range from cosy in the eaves to spacious two-bedroom family suites, each with a private outdoor space and views of the orchards. Bar 1822 is the spot for a post-walk pint or a pre-dinner cocktail on the terrace, before sitting down to eat in the redesigned restaurant. Here, just-picked vegetables from the Dales, the freshest seafood from Whitby, mushrooms foraged from the grounds and herbs from the organic garden all regularly feature on the menu. The concierge can arrange surf lessons and SUP boards for those who want to get out onto the water, or ask about the hotel’s new sunset yoga sessions on the beach. There’s an onsite spa (with a heated pool, steam and sauna), lovely walks that begin on the estate and the picturesque village of Robin Hood’s Bay nearby. In other words, masses to see and do in this gorgeous corner of Yorkshire.
