I stopped off here on the c2c a couple of years ago on a chilly wet windy day and warmed up by the fire. Stopped off again for tea and cake with the family. Great menu, friendly cosey, great cake and a lovely cuppa. Recommended stop off on the c2c or just for a bite to eat, beautiful location too

We spent one night here as a stopover on the C2C. The location and views are stunning with lots of wildlife. The accommodation we found to be very cramped and fairly basic. We had breakfast and evening meal. The choice was limited and the quality only average. Overall this was a disappointing place to stay, particularly as it has the... More

A wonderful welcome for 3 weary C2C cyclists. Friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms. Nothing was too much trouble, Lorraine was a superb host. A great place to stay whether on C2C cycle ride or just to visit and view the wonderful countryside.

Was a lovely place to stay over. Clean, tidy, great hospitality and top food to go with it. Location is at the top of a hill with stunning views everywhere you look. Stayed over as part of the Coast to coast cycle but would be ideal location for a break away cycling or not. Would highly recommend this place.

As two retired railwaymen cycling the C2C, we were keen to see what Parkhead Station House had to offer people interested in railways: we were not disappointed. After the long pull up the hill from Stanhope, the pot of tea and the biscuits on arrival were most welcome. Dinner in the evening was really good - both in quality and... More

As many of the other reviewers here, we stayed our last night of the coast to coast cycle route here. The weather was bone chilling fog by the time we arrived, plus a somewhat testing headwind, so it was great to end up somewhere so warm and comforting. Lorraine and Terry are very friendly and full of great stories about... More

I spent a night here with a group of other cyclists, all of us doing the C2C route. We got here at the end of the toughest day on the route, over 40 miles of riding, most of them uphill! So it was a real treat to get here and have some much needed comfort. Lorraine and Terry were so... More

Stopped overnight whilst cycling on the C2C route. A very good choice for an overnight stop, cyclists are well catered for. Lorraine and Terry made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Room was very comfortable and there was a good choice of food both in the evening and at breakfast. There is also an interesting railway history... More

Very friendly welcome, delicious reasonably priced food, very high standard accommodation, can thoroughly recommend a stop over here. Steve & Mary. We stayed one night on the last leg of our first completion of the C2C. The only genuine bicycle accommodation we came across.
