This breath-taking coastal hotel retains many links with the famous poet, with the award-winning Byron’s Bar & Grill offering amazing plates in a chic environment.

What could be more romantic on a weekend country break than relaxing in an outdoor hot tub at the hotel’s Serenity Spa? It’s the perfect way to unwind after a day exploring the beauty of the Durham Heritage Coast.

Discover dramatic views as you enjoy a romantic walk or bike ride along the coastal footpath, and seek out the nearby marina, heritage centre and visitor centre. If you’re short of romantic things to do (as if you ever could be), look out for the George Elmy lifeboat; it has a fascinating story to tell.
