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

I run Doxford Cottages for the owner and I live nearby. I have run the cottages since they opened and I love it! I like the fact that the clients are always happy and that so many of them return year after year. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the area with interested guests. I have also enjoyed living and working in such a beautiful place.
