The Hemmel Cafe

The Hemmel Cafe is set in the beautiful North Pennines which is an area of outstanding natural beauty hemmel-signand possibly one of the last places to catch a glimpse of the red squirrel.  It is an excellent location for Tourists, Walkers, Cyclists & (weather permitting) Skiers. For cyclists, it is on the C2C; for skiers and snowboarders, it is less than a 200 metre walk to the Ski-Allenheads slope; for walkers, there are numerous local walks plus, only a few miles away, Isaacs Tea Trail.

At the Hemmel Cafe we pride ourselves on serving good quality home-made food at very reasonable prices.  Sunday lunches (only during the winter, I’m afraid) are very special and can also be ordered for take-away, but you do need to book – see below for the phone number. For the latest on what is being served, check out the cafe on Facebook 

If you enjoy the cakes, you can always try more at Nan’s Bakery

The Cafe is in the middle of Allenheads and very easy to find – see Where We Are for how to find us.

We have a well appointed cafe downstairs, complete with wood burning stove, plus a comfortable library & lounge area overlooking the main room. Free wi-fi is available throughout.

There is a large, secluded outdoor area, including a play area for the children.

For winter opening times, see the opening hours.
