Built in 1818, Doxford Hall celebrates its bi-centenary, and a decade of hosting stylish weddings as a luxury country house hotel this year. A Georgian Manor house, crafted from mellow stone, and designed by sought-after architect, John Dobson, best known for his work on Newcastle Railway Station. With its formal gardens and manicured lawns, featuring a yew tree maze, Doxford Hall is a dreamy, romantic and very photogenic venue set within ten acres of grounds.
On top of stunning looks and period elegance, Doxford Hall has been awarded 4 red stars*, and is the only venue in Northumbria which boasts this crème de la crème AA rating. (* ‘red star’ status is granted only to the very best properties in British Isles delivering excellence throughout and an outstanding level of hospitality within each of the star categories).
Celebrate this special anniversary with us by enjoying one of the complimentary gifts on offer for couples marrying in 2018, with each month bestowing a special bonus gift, for example, a glass of prosecco for each guest (November); or an extra course added to the wedding breakfast ‘on the house’ (October).
With a range of beautiful reception rooms to choose from, whether your wedding is an intimate affair or a grander full-scale celebration – your every need is met. ‘The Flower Room’ is ideally suited for a ceremony up to 20; or ‘The Kennedy Room’, an elegant ballroom which accommodates up to 200 guests; ‘The George Runciman’ suite, with its grand fireplace and elaborate chandeliers; ‘The Library’, with superb garden views and stained-glass decorative ceiling light; The light-filled ‘Northumberland Room’, with Chinoiserie period detailing, pretty garden views; or oak-panelled ‘Frank Henry Mason’, perfectly suited to a candlelit reception dinner.
The Aqueous Spa enjoys a full range of facilities including indoor pool, steam, sauna and jacuzzi and five treatment rooms delivering world-class spa treatments, making the venue even more attractive. New for this year is the provision of a ‘bridal pampering suite’ – dedicated to the bride and her entourage from 7am on the big day, where breakfast, ‘elevenses’ with bubbles, and getting ready for the wedding ahead is good girly fun.
With bespoke flexible winter and midweek packages, your wedding may be more reasonable than you may at first anticipate. Or celebrate in style and enjoy ‘exclusive use’ of the whole estate for your special day – come along and discuss packages and prices over afternoon tea.
Whatever your wedding budget, Doxford Hall has a policy of hosting only one wedding per day, to ensure that exclusivity and the utmost attention is lavished on each couple – so why not pop in and meet us, to see what sets us apart as the finest of Northumbrian venues.
