Park Head Hotel


Welcome to the Park Head Hotel, where a warm and friendly welcome awaits you.

That’s certainly what I experienced a couple of weeks ago.

The Park Head Hotel is situated at New Coundon, Bishop Auckland, County Durham, a great location which offers good access to roads onto the A688 and A689 onwards onto the A1.

As you can see the hotel is situated surrounded by beautiful scenery, and is only a 5 minute car journey away from the popular attractions Kynren and Auckland Castle located in Bishop Auckland.

And once you arrive, you will be made to feel very welcome and right at home.

The hotel is a family run business, and they share in great family values, putting their guests right at ease from the very first moment.

The hotel comprises of 32 spacious en-suite rooms, accommodating flat screen televisions with a range of Freeview channels, free Wi-Fi available in all areas for guests, along with free secure parking for all, and a 24 hour front desk.

As a local resident of Bishop Auckland, you can sometimes forget how big the Park Head Hotel actually is, I know I did, and the valuable service it provides for their guests and our community.

Alongside overnight stays, the Park Head Hotel can cater for all your needs and every occasion.

From functions and events, or weddings to seminars, they will have a package to suit all.

One thing that has always stood out for me in regards to the Park Head Hotel is their food, and I’m yet to be disappointed by any dish chosen from their extensive menu so far.

Alongside a pub classic lunch menu available from Friday to Saturday 12pm until 5pm the hotel also caters for Afternoon Tea Parties that are available from Friday to Saturday 12pm until 4pm.

Evening bar meals are available from their new restaurant opened last year in April named the Bishop’s Grill, open from Monday to Sunday from 5pm until 10pm.

Sunday’s brings the traditional Sunday lunch or in the Park Head Hotel’s case, ‘The Carvery’, a delicious, traditional four roast carvery with homemade Yorkshire puddings, goose fat roasties and a great choice of vegetables for £9.75 per adult and under 10’s for £6.45 each, which includes a free dessert.

Something that shouldn’t be missed, although booking is advisable in order not to miss out.

The Park Head Hotel are a local business that look to use local fresh produce with a range of locally sourced meat, game and fish within their menu, and cheeses, chutneys and artisan breads to offer an alternative to their wide range of sweet treats.


Lastly, in all the years I’ve lived in Bishop Auckland, I was totally unaware that the Park Head Hotel has a large beer garden, and children’s play area located within it’s grounds, that attracts the sun no end on a warm day.

A great place in which to enjoy drinks with family and friends, whilst the children can have as much fun and enjoyment as the adults do.
