I stayed in Stewards Cottage with 3 friends and we had a lovely week. The cottage was always lovely and warm due to the Aga in the dining room so, although we had a free basket of logs, we didn't need to have a fire on at all. Sarah is very welcoming and it is great to have somewhere that is truly dog friendly (we had 4 dogs with us). Walking round the fields was lovely and we also liked to go to Low Newton by the Sea (about a 10 minute drive) where dogs are allowed to be off lead on the beach and the Ship Inn allows dogs in. There are many lovely locations in the area. There are three good sized bedrooms and the cottage could sleep 8 if necessary. This was my third visit to Doxford Farm Cottages and I will certainly return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Once used to house the farm labourers that worked the land, Doxford Farm Cottages is comprised of eight cottages. Just 200 yards from the barn venue itself, it's the perfect location for your wedding guests. The cottages are tastefully renovated and are made up of a mixture of 3, 2 and 1 bedroom cottages, all in a stone built terrace row. The cottages have comfy sitting rooms with wood burning stoves, fully equipped kitchens (one with Aga) as well as tastefully appointed bathrooms. In total, all 8 cottages can sleep up to 43 people. To maintain exclusive use of the farm, we ask that the accommodation is booked with the venue. As well as the main 8 cottages, we have the Farmhouse Annexe, which is accessible from behind the farmhouse. We also have the West Cottage, which is just a 15 minute walk from the main venue. There is no wifi at the West Cottage, so you get an authentically relaxing break - perfect for short holidays, but is also available to be booked for wedding guests. ... more less
