About the hotel
Parkhead is the former station master's house which has been sympathetically restored by owners Terry and Lorraine Turnbull to provide B&B & Tea Rooms with added attractions such as a Photographic/Art Gallery, Artwork ,railway memorabilia (kindly donated to Parkhead from numerous customers/visitors) also artefacts to test your knowledge. Parkhead Station once described as 'an extraordinary and disagreeable Dales relic' in 1998 before restoration but present day descriptions by visitors include terms as 'an oasis of the moor', 'haven' and 'sanctuary' with many clients returning to Parkhead regularly. Standing approx.
1500 feet above sea level in the Northern Pennines (designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) Parkhead Station marks the 100 mile point on the renowned C2C long distance cycle route on the traffic free section of the Waskerly Way and down hill to the coast! Parkhead is ideal base if you wish to take some time to appreciate this beautiful location ; sky at night the stars are very impressive (weather dependant of course) , an artists dream to capture the countryside on canvas, numerous long/short walking routes. Durham area: Beamish Open Air Museum, Tanfield Railway, Durham City and Newcastle City. Literature is available in our Tea Rooms and Bed Rooms; of course we would be more than happy to help you plan your outings with our local knowledge.

100% would recommend it to a friend
great place to stay at the top of the moors
Cycling coast to coast this was a lovely, friendly place to stay for the night.
Nice rooms, good food and the staff were really helpful and very welcoming. Stunning views over the moors especially at dawn just made my stay even better. I would highly recommend staying there and cannot wait to go back.
This place is brillant if you like peace and quite, the most perfect hosts, nothing was to much trouble for lorraine and terry to do.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Food was really good, bed was so comfy and the scenery just added to it.
Really good for cyclists as well, met a good bunch of people staying there.
Could not ask for a better place.
