Parkhill is a settlement located between Bowburn and Coxhoe, in County Durham. It lies within the civil parish of Cassop-cum-Quarrington. The Parkhill housing estate was originally built for miners and their families, at the south-east of Bowburn. It took it's name from Park Hill Farm. In the past Park Hill Farm in Quarringtonthe was lager, extending from the Four Mile Bridge at the edge of Coxhoe to Durham Road West in Bowburn. In the 1960s the A1(M) interchange was built and Parkhill was separated from Bowburn by the motorway. At the south-east of Parkhill is the Italian Farmhouse Kitchen (formerly the Kicking Cuddy pub, and historically the Clarence Villa). Some residents and businesses use Coxhoe as their address, whilst others distinguish the settlement as Parkhill.
