Spa & Leisure

Surrounded by such a classic landscape and architecture in the form of the main building, the juxtaposition of the glass fronted spa is a surprise that really works – particularly where the pool is concerned – you can’t really beat swimming into the deep green yonder.

The spa has all the facilities you could possibly want – Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, a pool, compact gym and five treatment rooms including one double treatment room. A particularly fun feature is the back lighting in each room which changes colour: you can choose a colour to suit your mood, or have it alternating at different speeds.

Hotel & Accommodation

The view at Raithwaite Hall is a unique asset, so while each of the 45 rooms has something to offer, the most impressive are those with balconies and rolling garden panoramas. The rooms themselves are spacious and as with the rest of the hotel, incredibly light, and with tea and coffee, an iron, ironing board and an iPod docking station all in the room you have everything to settle in and feel at home.

All the food has a basis in local delicacies, so you can expect pork pies and proper chips, but with a refined twist befitting the establishment. Light and airy with deep suede chairs and an aesthetically pleasing fireplace, The Poacher’s Bar menu offers lighter options while the cosier surrounds of the Brace Restaurant and Grill has all the markings of a traditional steak house, and shows off the handiwork of their head chef, Darren Iddon.
