Going green can be romantic... so spoil your other half with a romantic weekend break at Battlesteads, ‘Northumberland’s greenest hotel’.
Battlesteads Hotel in Wark on Tyne is green through and through, from their carbon-neutral heating to using locally sourced food and drink, and they have the accolades to prove it.
Your evening meal may include vegetables from their polytunnel, flowers and herbs from their garden and meat and fish from as close as a couple of miles away, making for a deliciously unforgettable dining experience.
Add to this their Dark Sky Observatory where you can snuggle up and gaze upon the stars in the biggest Dark Sky Park in Europe, just metres from your accommodation, and it makes for a fabulous couples’ rural retreat. You can even bring the dog!
