Tomorrow we head home but I'll put it to the back of my mind for now. The quality and peace if this place is second to none. We're in coach house but have previously stayed in swinney, Shellrig and long lands. They are all just different version of same excellent quality design. I'd recommend you come here but I feel...

Stayed at Doxford House for the weekend - what a treat! It was bitterly cold outside but the cottage was cosy warm and very inviting! Doxford House is very very spacious, and a fantastic kitchen. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the bedrooms were beautiful and the beds were really comfy, I appreciated the gorgeous cotton sheets! We wished we could have... More

I have just returned from a week in Doxford House and marvel at how over the 6 years i have visited the properties and grounds have maintained exactly the same standard. This must be down to the hard work and dedication of John and Sue, and there team. The comfort you will find on arrival from a long or indeed... More

As seasoned 'holiday cottagers' may we say how impressed we were with Fox Cover, we have stayed in properties meant for 4 that have been smaller! Everything you could want was available, making our 'emergency supplies box' redundant. The cottage was extremely clean and well appointed & will say that it made us feel very relaxed about our stay. Sue... More

We have recently stayed here with our 2 year-old child and absolutely loved it. Sue and John couldn't of been more helpful. We have stayed in various self catering cottages in Northumberland and can honestly say this has been the best and will definitely be returning. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at Doxford Cottages several times and loved every minute. The cottages are beautiful, very clean and well equipped. There is an excellent play field with a trampoline, swings, ride-ons etc which occupies the children for much time. Behind the cottages, tucked behind the trees is a picturesque lake with a well maintained pathway around the perimeter which... More

A lovely place to stay and relax. We stayed in Fox Cover and absolutely loved it, we had a 9 month old baby with us and the cottage was perfect. A great selection of books and DVDs, a superb games room and lovely walks around the estate meant there was always plenty to do. The cottage itself was spotless with... More

We stayed in Doxford House, on the Doxford Estate. We had a truly wonderful time, the house is so beautiful and spacious - you certainly don't get on top of each other here! It has everything you could wish for, and more - even Sky Sports for sports fans. If you're not there's a great selection of book and DVDs.... More

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
