The Raithwaite Estate near Whitby has become a member of small luxury hotels group Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
The 19th century country retreat is set within 100 acres of North Yorkshire countryside and is managed by Luxury Hotel Partners.
Having recently undergone extensive renovation, it includes 73 rooms, individual cottages, two restaurants, two bars, a spa, a sauna, a swimming pool and a fitness suite.
Having spent over £30m on initial renovations before opening last year, the hotel secured an extra £10m investment from Grosvenor Financial Consultants soon after, and there are now plans to build additional cottages, tearooms and spa pods to complete the redevelopment. It unveiled its new Hunters Restaurant in August this year.
Small Luxury Hotels of the World, also known as SLH, numbers 520 luxury hotels in 70 countries across the globe. Its website acts as a booking hub for all the varied properties on offer, while regular travellers can join its Club, which grants access to perks such as room upgrades, special rates, late check-outs and complimentary breakfast.
Estate Hotel Manager, Claire Jones said: "I am immensely proud of The Raithwaite Estate. We are delighted to be a member of SLH."
