Whitworth Hall Country Park is a parkland based set in 73 acres (300,000 m2) 8 miles (13 km) from Durham in England, which rests on the outskirts of the town of Spennymoor in County Durham.

The park includes Whitworth Hall, a Grade II listed stately mansion (the ancestral home of Bobby Shafto an 18th-century MP) hotel, deer park, lake and Shafto's Inn. The park includes a Victorian walled garden which contains England's most northerly vineyard. The current building was rebuilt in the 19th century.
