Doxford Hall

Christmas at Doxford Festive Finery

Christmas is all about bringing people together. 

Close enough to everything, yet far enough from the everyday. Doxford Hall is the perfect spot to unwind, indulge and make memories with family and friends this Christmas.

With 36 beautifully appointed bedrooms, a fabulous spa and pool and cosy reception rooms where you can settle down in front of a log fire it’s the ideal place to retreat to after exploring the fabulous Northumbrian coastline. But you don’t need to venture too far from the hotel to pack in some fun. Take a stroll around our grounds, lose yourself in the yew maze, head to our spa for an indulgent soak or curl up with a book in the library.

And with traditional fine dining from our award-winning restaurant you have all the ingredients for a relaxing and memorable country house Christmas.

We look forward to welcoming you to Doxford Hall Hotel and Spa this winter.

Christmas Two-Night Break

Christmas Eve: Thursday 24th December 2020

On arrival you’ll be welcomed with a delicious cream tea served in one of our lounges. Spend the afternoon as you wish, maybe taking the opportunity to settle back in front of a roaring fire or fit in a stroll around the grounds before a spot of carol singing on the main staircase. A magnificent three-course a la carte dinner will be served in our Restaurant – and perhaps a nightcap in the bar to follow! Many local churches will be offering a Midnight Mass service and warm mulled wine and mince pies will await your return, before retiring to bed.

Christmas Day: Friday 25th December 2020

Start the day with a fabulous Northumbrian breakfast and spend the morning at your leisure preparing for a traditional five-course Christmas Lunch with all the trimmings and a glass of festive fizz. Our lounges will be stocked with plenty of board games for you to enjoy during the afternoon or you may prefer to take a dip in the pool and relax in the Spa. At 3pm the Queen’s Speech will be shown in one of our reception rooms with hot drinks and homemade Christmas cake. A light lounge menu will be served in the evening.

Boxing Day: Saturday 26th December 2020

After a hearty farewell breakfast why not spend the morning in the Aqueous Spa, perhaps using your 20% guest discount to book a Spa treatment before departing for home or heading to nearby Alnwick for some sightseeing, sale shopping or a potter around the stunning Alnwick Gardens (tickets are provided as part of this package).

From £385 per person based on two sharing a classic double room.
