Enjoy a romantic break at this property, which has plenty of on-site facilities to enjoy, including a swimming pool and gym.

If you are looking for a beautiful, intimate and romantic getaway, South Lodge is the ideal retreat. Perfectly situated in the pretty Anglo-Saxon village of Witton-le-Wear, and commanding fabulous views across County Durham, the Dales and beyond, the property is set within the grounds of Witton Hall which really is the perfect location for guests wishing to treat their loved one to a holiday in magnificent surroundings. Witton Hall is one of the finest country houses built in the north of England during the 20th century, and was once listed in The Times as one of the top 100 houses in the country. South Lodge is detached, located at the gates of Witton Hall, and once served as the gate house. It has its own luxurious hot tub and garden area which provides an idyllic retreat.

Constructed from the finest sandstone, Witton Hall itself features classic Georgian elements including stone pillars, pediments, architraves, friezes and cornices. There are plenty of leisure facilities on site which will keep you entertained for days, including a gymnasium with weights and cardio vascular equipment and a sauna. The gymnasium looks out on to a dance floor with a ceiling consisting of hundreds of multi-coloured lights that sparkle and dazzle like the night sky. Guests can also find a heated swimming pool with wave system and wet bar. On a mezzanine level above the gymnasium, and overlooking the pool and dance floor, there is a games room with large screen TV, sound system and a refreshments area. Surrounding the hall and leisure complex, there are 2 1/2 acres of landscaped grounds which are home to a croquet lawn, tennis courts with outdoor barbecue and seating area, shared hot tub and also beauty parlour facilities where guests can book ahead and make an appointment for a professional sports or Thai massage. Guests may book and make use of a private chef, concierge service, airport pick up and beauty treatments by arrangement.

For guests wanting to relax, unwind and really treat their loved one to a romantic week away, then there is no reason at all to even leave the grounds during their stay, but for those who wish to explore the local area and really get to know County Durham, the Durham Dales and Weardale Valley, then this is the perfect location from which to do so.

    Facilities advertised (gym, pool and gardens) are in the main hall which are where the owners live so access is limited. Felt this was mis advertised as not clear you need to be supervised in the pool by the owners. Enjoyed the stay but felt slightly mislead by website.
