  • “Unfortunately, the cleanliness of the property was less than satisfactory (despite phoning and being reassured before our stay).”

    Floors needed to be vacuumed and washed by ourselves, before the rest of the party arrived on the Friday evening. The hot tub was unacceptable and we spoke to the hotel staff immediately (Saturday). They apologised, cleaned it and changed the water on Monday, so we could use it from the Tuesday. The cottage has undergone significant refurbishment over covid (?) and subsequently, there are still some problems- en suite showers did not work, basin taps loose and some paintwork not completed. We reported all to the hotel management. The hotel management listened to our complaint and apologised, they refunded £500 at the end of the week. The cottage will be superb once refurbishments are fully completed.

The property

Barnard Castle 4 miles.

This fantastic detached cottage is located in the quiet village of Greta Bridge, near Barnard Castle.

Situated in the grounds of the Morritt Hotel and Garage Spa, the cottage is a superb venue for hosting large groups with the added benefit of having the hotel’s facilities which are available to guests, right on your doorstep.

The cottage includes six large bedrooms which can sleep up to eighteen guests.

The mezzanine family rooms are accessed up a spiral staircase from the double rooms below.

There is plenty of living space for your group to enjoy meals together at the large dining tables, detox in the sauna or relax in front of the open fire whilst watching a film.

Outside, the private garden provides a superb area for summer barbecues on warmer days.

On-site facilities at the hotel include an award-winning 2 AA Rosette restaurant, excellent pub and bistro, as well as a luxury spa, where a number of treatments are available.

A short drive brings you to Barnard Castle, with its bustling high street full of quaint shops, pubs and cafes, as well as the impressive Bowes Museum.

Further afield you will find the historic Yorkshire market town of Richmond, great for strolling along the cobbled high street and castle walls.

About the location


Staindrop 6 miles; Richmond 13 miles; Darlington 16 miles; Durham 20 miles.

The market town of Barnard Castle is situated in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale in County Durham. It stands on the site of an ancient Roman fort which crosses the river. The medieval ruins of the castle still tower over the river and are well worth a visit. Known affectionately as 'Barney’ by residents and visitors alike, the town boasts cobble streets, yards and back lanes, which were first laid out in the 12th century. The nearby Bowes Museum is well worth a visit and a wonderful way to spend a day wandering around this beautiful building and experiencing the fascinating exhibitions. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep of this lovely market town, with woodland walks and cycle routes and the Lake District, the Pennine and Teesdale Ways, and the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
