Enjoy a romantic walk along the River Tees to High Force, one of England's most spectacular waterfalls and a truly breath-taking sight.

Stay at the Rose & Crown, an 18th century inn standing on the green of the picture postcard village of Romaldkirk in Teesdale. Tuck into local hearty meals including freshly caught fish from the reservoirs or local favourite Teesdale lamb; relax by the fire at this cosy, award-winning inn which combines the traditional charm of a historic building with contemporary touches and an ambiance that is about comfort and relaxation.

Round off your romantic weekend with a visit to the Bowes Museum in nearby Barnard Castle, a magnificent 19th Century French-style chateau housing internationally renowned fine and decorative arts in a number of stunning galleries.
