Although a popular family holiday destination, Cleveland also attracts couples throughout the year, who come here for the outdoor activities and escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Couples looking for romantic hotels in Cleveland will find everything from tiny B&Bs in Yarm to sprawling 19th-century country house hotels in Guisborough.
Romantic Hotels Close to Cleveland's Attractions
With most romantic hotels offering self-parking (usually free, but do check with your hotel), it's easy to get around the area and make the most of your break. If you plan on spending your time sightseeing, or shopping, staying close to Middlesbrough or Stockton-on-Tees may be your best option. Couples who prefer a slower pace should also consider hotels in Hartlepool or Guisborough. You'll find spa hotels are a popular choice with couples enjoying a romantic break, with facilities including a spa, massage treatment rooms, sauna, indoor pool and fitness centre.
Days Out for Two in Cleveland
After a delicious breakfast at your hotel - some even offer a rooftop terrace where you can dine outside - what could be more romantic than a day of learning to surf together? Saltburn Surf School provides lessons for beginners and the surf here is renowned as some of the best outside Cornwall. For couples who prefer a more relaxing day out, a stroll around Gisborough Priory, founded in 1119, followed by a day trip to Ormesby Hall, is a delightful way to spend a sunny day. Make sure you don't miss the opportunity to sample a 'Lemon Top', a scoop of dairy ice cream topped with lemon sorbet - it's a local speciality in Redcar.
Amenities for Couples at Cleveland Hotels
Romantic hotels in Cleveland offer amenities to ensure your stay is relaxing. Even hotels which don't have their own spa and leisure facilities usually have free Wi-Fi, with most establishments offering a minibar, turn down service and free toiletries in your room. Smaller B&Bs and guest houses may offer fewer amenities, but you'll benefit from a more personal service - you'll even find B&Bs with just a couple of cosy guest rooms.
