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 very comfortable in the accommodation. The lounge overlooks the garden where there are bird feeders and squirrel feeders where we could watch the birds and red squirrels feeding. We were fortunate to have good weather most of the week, so the log burner was only used once, not that we needed it as the accommodation is warm, but it added a cosy feel to a wet evening.
The accommodation is ideally located for sightseeing. We had lots of lovely days out from Doxford ... Holy Island, Farne Islands (with good sightings of Puffins), Alnwick Gardens & Castle, Housesteads Fort and Hadrian's Wall, Cragside, Northumberlandia (Cramlington), Druridge Bay Country Park and Nature Reserve and Craster ...
We do plan to return to the Cottages when back in the area. We thoroughly recommend the Doxford Cottages.
