Raithwaite Estate’s location in Whitby and Sandsend is the perfect place from which to explore Yorkshire and enjoy some of the best attractions in the area. Our accommodation is near historic points of interest, places of natural beauty and locations of incredible architecture and engineering.

The North Yorkshire Moors National Park is the smallest of Yorkshire’s three National Parks, but is home to the largest expanse of unbroken wild heather moorland in England and a heritage coast upon which dinosaurs once roamed. Lush green fields, atmospheric woods, vast open moorland, dramatic coastline; the North York Moors has contrasting scenery and is the perfect place to get away from it all.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Britain’s most popular heritage steam railway runs along 18 miles of railway through the National Park. This is a truly romantic way to explore this area of Yorkshire.

The old village of Robin Hood’s Bay is a magnet for visitors and one of Yorkshire’s best attractions. The village runs steeply down to the very edge of the rocky shore where you’ll find intriguing alleyways weaving between tightly-packed cottages and houses. Among the rocky shoreline are sea water pools with abundant marine life.

In Whitby itself you can visit the handsome 17thC harbourside house, former home of the great explorer, James Cook, who came to serve his apprenticeship in Whitby in the year 1746. It belonged to Cook’s master, the Quaker ship owner, Captain John Walker. When the young Cook was not at sea, he lodged here in the attic with Walker’s ‘other family’ of apprentices.

Sandsend, very close to Raithwaite Estate, is a small, picturesque beach situated on Yorkshire’s heritage coastline. It is a popular haunt with fossil collectors and fishing enthusiasts.
