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.
