Doxford Hall - Dog Friendly Hotel In Alnwick Northumberland
England’s northernmost county boasts many fascinating landmarks, including the stately Doxford Hall. A grand, 200-year-old country mansion resplendent in ten acres of private estate, as the only hotel in the county to be awarded the AA’s coveted four red star rating, it’s outstanding for all the right reasons: sumptuous interiors, elegant gardens and superb service.
The Northumbrian coastline was voted Holiday Destination of the Year in the 2017 BBC Countryfile Awards,
With its acres of unspoilt beaches and pretty coves to explore, dramatic clifftop castles and thriving seaside towns to amble around. There’s the Northumberland National Park, the Cheviot Hills and the North Pennines for those who love big skies and wide-open space. The area’s rich with wildlife, and mile after mile of coastal paths make for invigorating walking and cycling adventures. Head inland and you’ll discover beautiful gardens, family-friendly attractions and a wealth of stately homes to explore.
We don’t want you to feel at home – unless you live in a grand stately home already, that is.
A majestic, Georgian home whose luxurious bedrooms feature beautifully crafted furniture and bespoke bathrooms. A home with acre after acre of beautiful gardens all around. A home where you can indulge in bedroom upgrades, fine champagne, chocolates and flowers on arrival.
We pride ourselves on our superb service, our award-winning cuisine and our blissful spa and swimming pool – all of which you can enjoy throughout your stay. And with six dog-friendly bedrooms, there’s no need to leave anyone behind.
