Four-legged friends get to join the fun at Raithwaite Sandsend. A selection of our beautiful rooms and suites are pet-friendly, with an additional charge of £15 per pet, per night.

Dogs are also welcome at a special dog-friendly area near The Restaurant, so guests can tuck into a well-deserved lunch or post-walk drink without leaving the hound behind. We do recommend pre-booking as dining here is subject to availability.

In the warmer months, head out onto our sun-washed terrace for drinks, light lunches and afternoon tea with views over the Raithwaite estate gardens.

Dog-Friendly Activities in Sandsend, Whitby

Located on the edge of the North York Moors, only two miles from Whitby town centre, here at Raithwaite, we’re surrounded by fantastic dog walking spots, making us one of the premier pet-friendly hotels near Whitby.

Filey and Scarborough are also only a short drive along the coast, giving holiday-makers looking to enjoy a dog-friendly hotel break in the Whitby area even more choice. There are also historic fishing villages nearby to explore, such as Staithes – where Captain Cook learned to navigate the high seas – and Robin Hood’s Bay, along with bigger coastal resorts further south, such as Bridlington in the East Riding. Dogs can also travel for free on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and the Esk Valley Railway.
