Stopped here last night with my partner. It was kind of a last minute decision and having browsed through booking.com came across Battlesteads. We arrived just after noon Saturday and went straight into the bar to have lunch. From there we were shown to our room which was great! Spacious, clean, fresh fruit, biscuits and coffee. Dinner was beautiful & the wine selection great. Really interesting place with great eco credentials.

We had a great experience and the staff were superb. One lady in particular was great, serving lunch, showing us to our room and also involved in the serving of dinner.

This is a great place & a bonus is no mobile phone signal...

Thanks

Room Tip: We had room 17 which was lovely...

We booked a 2 night break away on secret escapes, which also included a 7 course taster menu. The location was perfect for exploring, in particular visiting Hadrian's wall, but not too far away from Hexham, the biggest town nearby.

The staff were friendly, the food was delicious, (if you do go for the tasty menu I advise that you also try the wines that are matched perfectly for an additional £25 per head, you will not be disappointed!) and the rooms were exceptionally spacious.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 1st floor, at the back of the hotel

Just got home from our fourth visit in a little over a year.

It seems to get better after each visit. Sleeping accommodation has been given a tasteful face lift.

Staff continue to be the friendliest and attentive (without being intrusive), food excellent and very good value. Our little dog thinks it's fantastic.

Hoping to visit in January 2014 weather permiting.

I booked a 7 course taster meal through Groupon. From booking - we were able to book prime time Saturday night - to the whole experience on the night, there was never any feeling of being a 'second class citizen' or an inconvenience.

The food is Northumbrian based using locally sourced produce and own grown items. It is what it says it is a taste of various courses. We went home full without being stuffed. One of the great things about trying a tatster meal is that you get to taste things that you would not normally try on the menu. There wasn't anythng that I did not like and the lamb in the meat course was the tastiest I have ever had. I am not a great dessert lover but the dessrt was lovely followed up with a great choice of local cheeses.

I chose the wine selection which is matched to the food courses. Each wine was lovely and interesting in its own right and went fantastically well with the food. I would recommend that anyone having this menu goes with the wine selection.

The service from all the staff was polite and friendly. They took time to explain what each course was, what the wine that accompanied it was, and that everything was to our expectation.

All in all a fantastic experience and one that I am really glad to have had the opportunity to have. Wark is a lovely place not too far off the main road, but has its own charm. Definetley well worth a visit.
