5 star cottages on an estate 2 miles from the coast.


Doxford Cottages are set on a 2500 acre estate in a superb location within 3 miles of the beautiful Northumbrian Coast, near the attractive seaside villages of Craster and Embleton.

Accessed down a private drive, the cottages are set in a superb mature landscape making the perfect holiday retreat. All the cottages have open views, space and great comfort and style, with south west facing stone flagged terraces opening on to lawns from which one can walk down through a wooded glade to the 3 acre Doxford Lake … it would be difficult to exaggerate the beauty and tranquility offered by the lake or the acres that lie beyond. Marked walks will guide you around your private holiday kingdom.

All the cottages have been created from 19th century buildings so everything is new; great care has been taken to provide the very latest in luxurious holiday comfort.

There are masses of books and good quality pictures and prints and every cottage offers the same superb experience:

Dishwashers, washing machines, fridge/freezers, microwaves, granite work tops, and every kitchen utensil you could wish for!

TVs with Sky in sitting rooms; TVs with Freeview in main bedrooms and secondary bedrooms in houses sleeping 8.

Log fires in all sitting rooms

Full broadband access throughout

Fully inclusive of heating, electricity and logs

Full live availability on our web site

John and I run Doxford Cottages for the owner and we live on site. We have run the cottages since they opened and it was a new departure for both of us and we love it! We like the fact that the clients are always happy and that so many of them return year after year. John has enjoyed sharing his knowledge of birdlife and nature in general with those guests that are interested. I have also enjoyed living and working in such a beautiful place.

Visit the ancient primeval cattle at Chillingham and also the Castle, with its eccentric owner. Scary dungeons and a quirky tea room. A great day out for young and old alike.
