Why We Love It

  • This cosy hotel is in a picturesque village in Northumberland, 10 minutes' drive from Hadrian's Wall
  • The restaurant serves local produce and holds multiple awards for sustainability
  • You can stargaze at the on-site dark sky observatory, under the darkest skies in England


Battlesteads Hotel & Restaurant is an 18th-century former farmhouse in the village of Wark, which is bounded by the River North Tyne and is 10 minutes' drive from Chesters Roman Fort, a well-preserved cavalry fort that's part of Hadrian's Wall.

Northumberland has the darkest skies in England, so the hotel's observatory is a great place to stargaze. Northumberland National Park, "England's last great wilderness... 405 square miles of natural wonderland" (Lonely Planet), is also a 10-minute drive from the hotel.

Hexham Abbey and Vindolanda -- an excavated Roman village with bath-house ruins -- are both less than 30 minutes' drive away. You can also drive 90 minutes to the coast to visit the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, or watch the sun set behind Bamburgh Castle.

The hotel is "one of the greenest hotels in the country, with a host of different eco-friendly systems in place" (The AA). It won the AA Eco Hotel of the Year Award 2016-17 and the Sustainable Tourism Award in the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2017, and boasts a Green Tourism Gold award, too. Seasonal ingredients are grown in the kitchen gardens, and the bar serves Fairtrade wines and ales from local microbreweries.

Rooms are "well-appointed and presented with quality beds, décor and flooring as standard" (The AA). Dogs can stay in some rooms for an extra £10 per night (payable direct to the hotel).

Fabulous food. The 8 course tasting menu was amazing. Waiting staff faultless. They were knowledgeable, friendly and very efficient. Very cosy atmosphere in the bar area with lit woodburner. Can't wait to go back.

Great value for money, with 8 course tasting menu, and tickets to observatory. Thought the hotel's ' green ethos ' was thought provoking, and shows it works.
