Much To Do & See

There is much to do and see in the surrounding area with Darlington a mere 18 miles distant. Within an hour’s drive there are many racecourses including Sedgefield, Catterick, Wetherby, York and Newcastle to name but a few. Scotch Corner is 9 miles, and Teeside 30 miles.

The Morritt Country House Hotel is situated in the heart of stunning Teesdale countryside, a mecca for lovers of the outdoors. The landscapes of Durham are some of the best in the county for groups to explore on foot.

The Perfect Setting To Explore On Foot

Take some time out in the county’s uncrowded, protected landscapes where you can see some of the most stunning view this country offers.

Experience incredible views and amble, ramble or hike along walking routes with the soundtrack of Durham’s great outdoors as company: the thunderous glory of High Force Waterfall; the call of a curlew; bees foraging in the hay meadows of the Durham Dales and waves rolling endlessly in on the beaches of the Durham Heritage Coast.

Signposted paths include the Teesdale Way and Weardale Way, and a stunning stretch of the Pennine Way National Trail.

Our Delighted Clientele

Staff were lovely, hotel was lovely, food was brilliant and the beds were unbelievably comfy. Wouldn’t have got up other than the breakfast being perfect every morning. Will definitely be staying again.

Joe Jones

Nice old building that is easily accessible. Well appointed with properly trained staff. Been eating there for many years and always had a good experience. Interesting how some restaurants can produce a Sunday Lunch and some cannot. This is one of the can does. Splendid choice of starters and mains to match.
Give it a try. You won’t regret it.

Howard Walker

The garage spa is cute and compact and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The treatments my group indulged in were gorgeous and we enjoyed the hot tubs, steam and salt rooms. Thoroughly relaxing and topped off with a yummy afternoon tea over at the hotel to end the day.
