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.
