Doxford Hall Hotel & Spa
Located halfway between Bamburgh Castle and Alnwick Castle, Doxford Hall Hotel & Spa sits in ten acres of grounds in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside. The Doxford estate dates back to the 13th century and the current Doxford Hall was built in 1818. Each owner has left their mark, and when Robert and Gina Parker purchased the property in 2010 they completed a stunning renovation of this Georgian House.
Every bedroom is named after a famous person or location in the North East of England. All are luxurious and spacious with stunning views including the yew tree maze added in 2000. There are many plush touches, too, such as the highest quality bed linen, bespoke furniture, and a generous supply of luxury toiletries, so it is no surprise this country house hotel is popular for weddings. For those travelling in groups or looking for extra privacy, the two luxury self catering cottages make a terrific option.
The Spa & Leisure Club features a swimming pool, two spa baths, a sauna and steam room, plus five treatment rooms. The award-winning George Runciman Restaurant offers seasonal local produce, including Northumbrian beef and locally caught seafood, and traditional afternoon tea is served in the Frank Henry Mason Room.
If the country air makes you long for a game of golf, the hotel can arrange golf packages even if you don't have your clubs and fishing is available too at nearby Guyzance.
