Doxford Hall Makes a Majestic Base For Exploring the Glorious Countryside
The Northumbrian coastline was voted Holiday Destination of the Year in the 2017 BBC Countryfile Awards,
with its acres of unspoilt beaches and pretty coves to explore, dramatic clifftop castles and thriving seaside towns to amble around. There’s the Northumberland National Park, the Cheviot Hills and the North Pennines for those who love big skies and wide-open space. The area’s rich with wildlife, and mile after mile of coastal paths make for invigorating walking and cycling adventures. Head inland and you’ll discover beautiful gardens, family-friendly attractions and a wealth of stately homes to explore.
Indeed, Doxford is one of those stately homes – a Georgian masterpiece built in 1818, it’s been lovingly restored over the years, including a wealth of beautiful wood panelling and a grand handmade staircase. Old stone fireplaces, classic leather armchairs, elegant sitting rooms, grandfather clocks – the sense of a grand but homely residence pervades. The Doxford estate has a sedate, secluded air, but is conveniently accessible from the A1, and as Northumberland’s only four AA red star awarded hotel, in recent years it’s become very much a destination in its own right. We have 35 handsomely appointed bedrooms, elegant lounges and a fabulous spa, swimming pool and gym, making Doxford the ideal place to unwind after exploring the delights of Northumbria. Add to this the award-winning dining in our George Runciman restaurant, the yew maze and acres of landscaped gardens to explore and everything’s in place for a relaxing and memorable stay.
