This privately owned hotel in the pleasant village of Wark is ideally placed for visiting Hadrian’s Wall, the northern frontier of the Roman Empire and a celebrated World Heritage Site. It is also fabulous for exploring the vast and beautiful county of Northumberland including the market town of Hexham, manmade Kielder Water and Forest and the Kielder Observatory, a dark skies discovery centre.
The cosy, welcoming Black Bull has had love and attention lavished on it in the past two years, ensuring everything reaches exemplary standards for the modern traveller while retaining period features of its 18th century roots.
All the nine en-suite guest bedrooms are individually decorated to a high standard and equipped with flat screen TV with Freeview channels, wi-fi, hospitality trays, irons, hairdryers, safes and bathrobes. There is ample private parking and the picturesque River Tyne is close by.
Food is a major part of the offering at this free house, with an emphasis on pub classics made at realistic prices with quality ingredients which are freshly cooked and sourced very locally, including meat from the butcher’s across the road.
