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 property 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).

Ask reception for a leaflet of local walks.

A lovely place to stay and eat. Good location with the Northumberland National Park n the doorstep, which we thought was wonderful. The lodges are really good, with fresh fruit and robes provided. The staff could not be more friendly and the food was very good. All in all a very enjoyable 3 night stay.

Mistakes were made with our room number which subsequently added cost to our bill which we did not incur. This was rectified when it was pointed out at departure but it was unsettling

The food was amazing on the eight course taster meal.
Other Comments
I appreciated the fact that they provided their own energy from the very large solo panel at the back of the hotel. Plus, some of the food was grown in their garden, which was delicious
