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 – recently named the UK’s most sustainable hotel. 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 team has also just introduced the UK’s first hotel Forest Garden, creating an edible landscape for the hotel’s chefs and mixologists to seasonally pick from. The concierge can arrange surf lessons and SUP boards or ask about the hotel’s new sunset yoga sessions on the beach. There’s an onsite spa, lovely walks that begin on the 100-acre estate and the picturesque village of Robin Hood’s Bay nearby.
