It was spacious, very clean and well equipped. The use of the pool and gardens at Doxford Hall was a great bonus. The cottage was clean, well equipped and comfortable and we had a great holiday. The staff at the hotel were very helpful. Alnwick and Barter Books are a must, and it was lovely to be so close to Seahouses and trips to the Farne IslandsRead more. Hide
