Rest and Relax in Yorkshire

Loved a family weekend in North Yorkshire, June was busting all over with sunshine and brilliant greenery, and the bluest of sparkling seas. It was a delight to be staying once again at Raithwaite Estate, a short walk from Sandsend, this time in their small boutique hotel, The Keep. All the rooms, facing the wooded valley, have huge bathrooms with an enormous bath, walk-in shower and the wonderful therapeutic Aromatherapy Associates products. So relaxing! Lucky I had my iPod in my bag for soothing music! We took the chauffeured buggy to the main hotel for dinner, and on the table were these lovely birthday flowers from my family!!

Our room in the main hall overlooked the gardens, was large and spacious with huge comfortable beds and a modern classy bathroom complete with Aromatherapy Associates products. It was a very quiet and cosy environment to spend time in. Our package included dinner in the main restaurant. Pre-dinner cocktails were served in the cosy bar. …
