The Elks Head


Due to a series of unforseen circumstances a decision has been taken to lease out The Elks Head.  Is is hoped that new tenants will be in place by August this year and the pub can re-open then.  

All bookings prior to August should have been cancelled.  If you had a booking and have not been contacted please email :  Bookings can still be made after July but the business will be under new management.

The Elk's Head is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the foothills of the North Pennines on the edge of Whitfield village. Our riverside location is surrounded by beautiful woods in an idyllic upland valley. It is perfectly positioned to be your base to explore the North of England. 

We are ideally placed between the Lake District to the west and Northumberland to the east, with Yorkshire and County Durham a step away to the south and the Scottish Borders to the north.
