We have holidayed elsewhere for a year or two but returned to Northumberland and also to Doxford. We were blessed with wonderful weather and the children loved Embleton Bay. Coach House was bigger than we needed but we loved the space. This time we went on three of the walks around the estate, bribing the children to go on the... More

I have just returned from a week at Doxford House where five adults and two children were on holiday, the house was lovely but we naively thought a proper baby cot would be available not a travel cot. The baby did not sleep in it at all and spent the nights in her parent's bed which is not conducive to... More

I am sorry you were not happy with our cots, but we do state in the Information section that we can supply, free of charge, Babydan Travel cots. I am sorry that you had not noticed that and were inconvenienced. Doxford Cottages sit in the centre of a 3500 acre private estate; we do ask that guests do not make... More

We stayed for a week in July in Doxford House - a group of seven, two adults, our three teenage / almost teenage children and two of their friends. Firstly, the quality of accommodation was outstanding. We regularly stay in self catered cottages/villas on holiday, and Doxford House was amongst the best. The quality and range of fittings was excellent,... More

We stayed as a family (5 adults, 1 small child and a toddler) in Doxford Cottage and were happy with the cleanliness and facilities. We arrived on a Friday. Just outside our cottage is a communal area in which we used on the Saturday when our neighbours were leaving. We used this area as it was a safe area for... More

We are very sorry that we didn’t meet your expectations for your family holiday. As you can see from our other Trip Advisor reviews your experience is not the norm. We do have an excellent games field where adults and children can play football, use the trampoline or climbing frame. This is an ideal and safe place for children of... More

Stayed in Fox Cover which was perfect for our needs. It was a spacious detached cottage with a conservatory and enclosed sitting out area near to the lake in this large country estate. All on one level with a walk-in shower and a bath, and it can be booked to be a twin bedded or a king-size double. Staying here... More

Swinney Cottage offers a perfect peaceful getaway. We visited with my elderly parents for a week's holiday and the Cottage was ideal for our needs and well worthy of its 5 star rating. The location is very quiet and central for visiting Northumberland attractions. Both bedrooms has its own bathroom as well as the handy downstairs cloakroom. Each bedroom is... More

We stayed in a party of 16 (adults and children) and hired the coach house and also doxford house. Upon arrival we received a warm welcome from sue and had the chance to look around both cottages before the rest of our party arrived. Wine, flowers and honey in each cottage along with fresh milk were a lovely touch. My... More

We were a party of five adults and we stayed in the Carriage House. From the moment we walked through the door we felt at home. We were greeted with flowers, honey, milk and wine, which were most welcomed. The standard of accommodation is five star. The kitchen is very well equipped. The property is spacious and five us felt... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in March 2014 and the cottage offered sheer relaxation and luxury. The whole site is well maintained which created a very good first impression, then the cottage (Shellrig) itself was gorgeous and cosy with all the amenities you could require - comfy furniture, wi-fi, oodles of kitchen equipment, wood-burning stove, books,...

Booked a 4 night stay at Coach House, reviews were great and the place certainly lived up to it. Accommodation clean and well maintained, good view of local wildlife including red squirrels, deer, hares and of course suicidal game birds. Highly recommended for a peaceful stay and it is quite easy for access to local attractions. Having stayed at a... More
