Living North is delighted to have teamed up with long-time favourite, award-winning Battlesteads Hotel & Restaurant to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a two-night staycation for two, in one of the hotel’s luxury lodges

The winner will also be treated to the five-course taster menu, and two tickets to an unforgettable stargazing event in the on-site observatory.

Battlesteads Hotel & Restaurant are proud to be named the greenest hotel in Northumberland. They were the first in the country to install a carbon-neutral heating system, and one of only two to hold a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme. While the hotel is the perfect place to unwind, you’ll be sure of a luxe breakaway as you settle into one of their luxury lodges – and you’ll be treated to a delicious home-cooked breakfast in the morning.

You’ll adore their tasting menu too. In the kitchen, they focus on fresh, local and seasonal produce to reduce their food miles and a large proportion of these ingredients are grown on-site in their kitchen garden by Head Gardener, Kate, and their charcuterie and smoked salmon are produced in-house by Head Chef Eddie. After sipping your refreshing fizz, expect a series of delicate dishes which go to make up their five-course tasting menu.

Last but not least, head to Battlesteads Dark Sky Observatory, where talks, activities, stargazing and Astro courses are held to suit anyone from the total beginner to the professional. On the edge of the Kielder Water & Forest Park, under the dark skies of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, Battlesteads Observatory has been awarded Dark Sky Stay and Gaze status by Northumberland Tourism. Their fascinating events include stargazing, astrophotography and aurora hunting (understanding the Northern Lights). It’s a simply magical experience.
