Battlesteads is located in the peaceful and picturesque village of Wark in the heart of Hadrian's Wall country. Battlesteads has been described as one of the greenest hotels in the country with a host of different eco-friendly systems in place, but it is much more than this. Boasting an observatory to make the best of the area's Dark Skies status, and an award-winning kitchen team sourcing local produce, and even growing their own items for use in the kitchen. Bedrooms are well appointed and presented with quality beds, décor and flooring as standard. The team are warm and friendly, and really do strive to go that extra mile for guests. The log-burning stove in the bar makes it the place to sit while sampling one of a host of real ales available.
