Gardens & Grounds

Many happy couples have posed for photographs in the beautiful gardens and grounds of The Morritt Country House Hotel. The impressive stone-built, double-fronted 18th century coaching inn sits on a quiet road, just across the beautiful Greta Bridge where the river gently flows beneath.

Set in the heart of stunning Teesdale countryside and easily accessible off the A66, the hotel has well-kept, established gardens with many picturesque locations for photo opportunities. The landscaped gardens include intimate groves with tree-branch archways, floral and lawn areas, and our sculpture, The Spirit of Teesdale that incorporates dry-stone seating.
