5* cottages on an estate two miles from the coast


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

Accessed down a private drive, the luxury holiday 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 acres Doxford Lake… it would be difficult to exaggerate the beauty and tranquillity 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 worktops, 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 eight guests.

You will also find:

Log fires in all sitting rooms

Full broadband access throughout

Fully inclusive of heating, electricity and logs

Accessibility Grading - Mobility M2 on Foxcover

Full live availability on our website

We look forward to welcoming you to Doxford.

Meet the owner

Sue Pringle

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.
