On arrival we received a very warm welcome from Simon who took us to our 3 bedroom cottage just a short walk from the Hall. The cottage was excellent, every facility you could wish for, for both adults and dogs. Large lounge, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, large fully equipped kitchen. Raithwaite has beautiful gardens and is within easy walking... More

We chose Raithwaite as we have dogs and they have a superb puppy spa which the dogs loved and would highly recommend! We had a fantastic meal on the first night in the restaurant, service was fabulous and the food was great. Breakfast the first morning was a little disappointing however we take responsibility as we arrived at 9.45am just... More

We went here on a small getaway, absolutely lovely facilities, very elegant and modern buildings. There is a restaurant and bistro style bar, soon to be moved to another location on site. When booking, you don't actually get told that the facilties and spa/gym/pool are located at the main section, you also don't get to choose your location, after bringing... More

After being turned away for lunch from The Dunsley hotel, as they had a large function they didn't want to bite off more than they could chew... The Raithwaite clearly didn't have the same idea of quality over quantity! On our arrival it was evident a wedding was taking place so I asked if they could accommodate 8 of us... More

My "executive" room in the "Keep" (built I'm told 18 months ago 200 yds from the main part of the Hotel) was large, immaculately clean, comfortable and well equipped - the bathroom with bath an double shower was outstanding. The room benefited from a small balcony bordered by the "battlements" (which to you can see well in farmersusan's photo) the... More

This was our first visit, and we were very pleasantly surprised with every aspect of our stay. We had a very warm greeting from the friendly and attentive staff, making us feel like regular frequent guests. Although we had booked a standard king room, we were very pleased with the spaciousness,and enormous bathroom, all spotlessly clean. We had a light... More

Spent two nights staying at The Raithwaite Estate and have to say that we had a wonderful time. The food in the Brace Restaurant was delicious (if a tad expensive if you are paying full price) but our room was lovely and every member of staff we had dealings with was friendly and welcoming. The quality of the food provided... More
