Beat the January blues with our latest competition to win an overnight spa break at The Morritt Hotel in the Durham Dales
We’ve teamed up with The Morritt Hotel and Garage Spa in Greta Bridge, Teesdale to offer two lucky winners the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and relax and unwind at this delightful country house hotel.
Situated in picturesque countryside, the hotel is just 10 minutes (drive) from the market town of Barnard Castle, and close to attractions including The Bowes Museum, Raby Castle and Barnard Castle itself, the hotel offers a warm northern welcome and an unstuffy, romantic atmosphere. With award-winning food, a luxurious modern spa, and individually designed guest rooms, The Morritt is perfect for a relaxing short break to relax and unwind away from it all.
The Garage Spa, which adjoins the hotel has a fascinating past, transformed from an ancient stopping station into a first-class spa. Created with imagination and luxurious rural simplicity, sumptuous decor awash with warm natural stone and timber welcomes you like an old friend. Here you'll find everything you expect from a modern spa and more including a wide range of facials, massages, wraps and scrubs.
Did you know that in 1839 Charles Dickens visited Greta Bridge to research Nicholas Nickleby? Infamy came to Dotheboys Hall in nearby Bowes, which is still visible today along with the headmaster’s grave in Bowes church cemetery. Dickens stayed at one of the inns in Greta Bridge – possibly The Morritt – and in the novel was the meeting point between Nicholas and Wackford Squeers..
