An eco-friendly Northumberland hotel in a picture-perfect village on the edge of a national park - includes breakfast and an eight-course tasting menu dinner on the first night

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. Awarded the accolade of 'Northumberland Hotel of the Year' in 2017 and boasting TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders Platinum status along with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, 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.


Located near two tranquil attractions - Northumberland National Park, and Kielder Water and Forest Park - you can expect spectacular landscapes, rare wildlife and refreshing walks all on your doorstep. Twee Wark Village is quintessential England and both Hadrian’s Wall and Chesters Bridge, with its nearby Roman Fort, make for some lovely days out. Hexham itself is a charming market town, dominated by an impressive abbey.
