A small, eco-friendly hotel in a picture-postcard village on the edge of a national park, with breakfast and one eight-course tasting menu dinner

There’s nothing like seeing veg start the morning in the garden and end the day on your plate, which is exactly the sort of sustainable, produce-based approach Battlesteads Hotel & Restaurant takes to its cooking. Recently awarded the accolade of 'Northumberland Hotel of the Year' and awarded TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders Platinum status, it balances a cosy atmosphere with an eco ethos.

Each of the individually decorated rooms has its own style, with plush furnishings and an upbeat countryside vibe. Be sure to pack your walking boots because the hotel is situated on the edge of Northumberland National Park, making it the perfect location for venturing out into the extensive woodland and filling your lungs with fresh air. When night falls, head to Battlesteads' own Dark Sky Observatory for a spot of stargazing and astronomy talks.
