Can't decide whether to check out Harry Potter country in Durham, the shopping and nightlife of Newcastle, or the old-school throwback that is the Beamish Museum? Do it all from your County Durham base courtesy of this Escape to the Aston Hotel Darlington.

You and your other half will stay overnight in a standard double room at the contemporary establishment for £59 (up to a £116.20 value), or make it two nights for £119 (up to a £249.35 value). Either way, you'll bunk down in accommodation that features king-size bed, en suite with power shower, 33-inch flat-screen TV, work area, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and Wi-Fi access.

No need to scour the countryside for the finest in local fare; daily breakfast is included with your stay, as is 10% off food and drink at Bar & Brasserie 59 on the first night for one-night stays, or on the second night for two-nighters, who instead get a bottle of house wine if they take two courses each on night numero uno. Dishes include the likes of Aston prawn cocktail, locally sourced pork and black pudding sausage, butternut squash risotto, and chocolate and orange fondant.

Those sights we promised? Here they come: Harry and his wizarding friends were filmed at Durham Cathedral, and the city is also home to Durham Castle, Durham University Botanic Garden, Durham University Oriental Museum, and Lumley Castle; Newcastle's shopping stops include Eldon Square, Fenwick Newcastle, and the intu Metrocentre, while its other attractions include Metro Radio Arena and the Theatre Royal. As for Darlington itself, closer to home you'll find Darlington Railway Centre and Museum, Houndgate Gallery, Piercebridge Roman Fort, and Raby Castle.
