    Morritt Hotel – 2

“A classic recipe: I. Luxury of a country house hotel. II. Taste of award-winning food.
III. Comfort of a destination spa. IV. Timelessness of the Teesdale countryside.”

Surrounded by rolling fields and grazing sheep, the River Greta and the handsome hamlet of Greta Bridge, The Morritt Hotel is just a 5-minute drive from the market town of Barnard Castle, where a French château is famed for housing some of the world’s finest European art.

The Garage Spa needs no preamble – from the adorable log-fired shepherd’s hut sauna, to the outrageously exclusive Rolls Royce couple’s suite – it’s a destination through and through. Doze off in its sunken garden (the fireside hammock is a favourite of ours).

As night falls, sit down to 2-AA-Rosette-awarded cuisine in Gilroy’s Dining Room. If it’s not fine dining you’re after, then, tuck in to a tasty home-cooked fish pie washed down with a pint of traditional cask ale in Dickens bar and bistro – allegedly he stayed here while researching Nicholas Nickleby.

Atop the ruins of a Roman settlement, The Morritt Hotel dates back to the late-17th Century. Down the years – first as a Georgian coaching inn and then as a hotel – it has honed the art of hospitality. Follow in the footsteps of Dickens and find your inspiration.
