Hotel gardens

A unique coastal retreat in the heart of Yorkshire

Woodland-filled grounds, a home-grown restaurant, stylish rooms and the outdoor joys of Sandsend beach and the North York Moors on our doorstep. This is Raithwaite Sandsend, the relaxed country escape with a warm Yorkshire welcome.


Just-picked salads, sustainably sourced veg, and fish so fresh it might as well have just somersaulted out of the sea and onto your plate: our restaurant showcases the very best of Whitby and Yorkshire. Simple, seasonal, well-cooked and absolutely delicious – that’s what we’re all about.


Our stylish rooms are cosy, cosseting and just the place to retreat and recharge. Kick off your shoes, make yourself at home and gaze out at those views over our gorgeous woodlands and flower-filled gardens.


The beach, the forest, the rolling moors: it’s all there for the taking. Head out onto the waves at Sandsend with our very own surf school, stroll around the hotel grounds foraging for delicious tit-bits with our talented chef, or discover Whitby, the moors, Dales and glorious coastal walks on our doorstep.


There’s an indoor pool to lounge by, fragrant treatments to drift away to, plus a steam room, sauna and gym, if the mood takes you. This is where you come to relax and restore, ready to hit the great outdoors with a new spring in your step.


Bring the brood, gather the clan, collect the colleagues and make the most of our knock-out setting. From team meet-ups in our rambling grounds, to family parties beside our staggeringly beautiful coastline, we’ve the space, the food and the know-how to make every bash a winner.
