    About

    The Battlesteads is a friendly, family run hotel and is ideally placed for exploring Hadrian s Wall, Kielder and Border Reiver country. Situated in the quiet village of Wark within 100yds of the River North Tyne. Originally built as a farmstead in 1747, this four-star Inn and Restaurant features a cosy bar with open fire in the winter and a sunny conservatory within a secret walled beer-garden. This is the land where Romans held back Picts, where Celts were driven out by Angles and Saxons, where major battles between the Scots and the English were fought. Here are the finest stretches of Hadrian s Wall, abbeys and churches linked with the earliest story of Christianity in Britain. Here, still guarding the river crossings and the heights where men waged battle in the far-off days of border strife, are strongholds of great stature even in ruin they have a noble grandeur. Joining it all are remote high moors, Cheviot Hills, hundreds of glittering burns and streams and a spectacular 70 mile coastline of rocky headlands, sandy bays and raucous sanctuaries of seabirds. Our bar has 5 cask-ales including Durham Magus, Wylam Gold Tankard and both Black Sheep Ale and Black Sheep Special and our wine list runs to over 20 varieties. Battlesteads was a Temperance Hotel in the early 20th century, so we also provide very tasty organic Lemonade, Dandelion & Burdock and Ginger Beer from Fentimans of Newcastle.
