It is set in one hundred acres of beautiful grounds and has a plethora of different accommodation for you to choose from.
The two hotels within the Raithwaite Estate are certainly the height of luxury. Rooms are spacious and light and all en-suite with a great range of facilities.

Mallyan Spout Hotel And Mallyan Spout
With scenery you can only dream of and outstanding views across the Esk Valley, the Mallyan Spout Hotel is a charming grade two listed country house dating back to 1892. It is surrounded by many places to go out walking and lose yourself for an hour or two.
Within the house, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming with its three guest lounges and roaring log fires. There are also two bars, an a la carte restaurant and twenty en-suite rooms. Each room has been decorated and furnished to an extremely high specification. All are en-suite and come with a flat-screen TV, radio, wifi, tea, coffee, and mineral water. All rooms are unique, no two are alike.
You may now be surprised to hear that the Mallyan Spout Hotel does not have a swimming pool, especially since the subject of this article is hotels with pools! However, it does have something spectacular, literally on its doorstep, that could be far preferable to a pool.
Mallyan Spout, a 70ft waterfall that cascades into a natural pool below, forms part of the Wade’s Causeway and is located just behind the hotel. It has a reputation for providing an excellent place to swim and is in an area of natural outstanding beauty. Swimmers have been dipping their toes at Mallyan Spout since the 19th century when the area became popular as a spa centre.
