Four-legged friends get to join the fun at Raithwaite Sandsend; one of the most dog-friendly hotels in Whitby and the surrounding area. 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 throughout their stay. 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 made with local produce and afternoon tea with views over the Raithwaite estate gardens.

Bed and breakfast are also available for dogs and owners who would prefer to use the hotel as room accommodation only while they discover more of this fabulous location.


Located on the edge of the North York Moors, only a short distance from the Whitby Abbey, Whitby town centre, Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the North Yorks National Park, here at Raithwaite, we’re perfectly located for guests looking to enjoy a short break, surrounded by superb dog walking spots, making us one of the premier pet-friendly hotels.

Filey and Scarborough are also only a short drive along the coast, giving holiday-makers looking to enjoy a dog-friendly hotel break near Whitby harbour even more choice. There are also historic fishing villages nearby to explore, such as Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes – where Captain Cook learned to navigate the high seas – 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.

Free parking, breakfast in bed and free wifi are also available to guests. Get in touch today to book a room at one of the best pet-friendly hotels in Whitby or make a reservation at our restaurant.
