Why We Love This Hotel

  • The Park Head hotel is part of The Auckland Project, a charity that aims to revitalize the historic mining town of Bishop Auckland.
  • The hotel's restaurant uses fresh produce, most of which is grown in the garden in Auckland Castle or locally sourced from across the county.
  • The historic Durham city — home to an 11th-century cathedral, a Norman castle and "a cobweb of hilly, cobbled streets" (Lonely Planet) — is 20 minutes' drive away.
  • The open-air Beamish Museum, the Bowes Museum, and the Durham Heritage Coast are all within a 30-minute drive of the hotel.
  • The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. It has a distinct landscape, serves as a key habitat for a variety of flora and fauna, and was designated a UNESCO Global Geopark in 2003.
  • County Durham, with a variety of walking routes for all abilities, is described by National Geographic as a "landscape best explored on foot". The best known route is the 77-mile Weardale Way that follows the path of the River Wear.
