Firstly can I say that from the moment we saw the venue we just knew it was the one! It was the first one we viewed and we just fell in love, every place after that just didn’t compare. Every part of it is so beautiful and romantic and so well thought out. We have family all over the country so having a place where everyone could get together and spend a couple of days together was ideal! The cottages are lovely and all our family have been raving about them and the whole wedding since they got home! We were looked after so well by Jess, our wedding coordinator, and the whole team from the start who helped us to shape our perfect day and bring it all together, so thank you! The food is to die for and there is something to cater for everyone, which is another thing all our guests have been raving about too! Also, being able to have our dogs as such a big part of the day was the cherry on top of the cake! All in all we had a day even more perfect than we dreamed of and we would do it all over again! Thank you again, Mr and Mrs Hinds x

We had the most amazing weekend. From start to finish we felt special. Our wedding was organised and seamless with everything in place when we needed it. The rustic feel to the venue was exactly what we wanted and we were allowed to make it our own with no questions asked. On the morning of the wedding, our wedding organiser ensured we were feeling calm and ready with no worries or concerns and we all knew exactly what we were doing. The bar and catering staff were extremely helpful and answered any questions we had. The guests commented on the beautiful venue and particularly how delicious the food was. Thank you for making our day the best of our lives!

Just a very quick email to say thank you sooo much for all of your hard work for our wedding. It couldn’t have went any better, it was exactly the day we wanted and we can’t stop thinking/talking about it! ???? The whole day ran without any issues and we have had so many compliments on the venue and how beautiful it was. We will no doubt be back for a Sunday lunch or any events that may happen at Doxford in the future.

We had just the best time. We fell in love with the venue upon first seeing it back in 2019 and everything from them on has been first class. Throughout covid/lockdowns too. I adore Northumberland, it's my favourite place in the world and this place is the ideal setting for a wedding. The 3 days allowed us to spend more time with family and friends and made the wedding day itself feel more relaxed without having to chat too much and just enjoy the moment. Once again, Thanks to all the staff for looking after us throughout the process and our wedding too.

Just to say a massive thankyou from both of us for the weekend it was everything we could have dreamed of and you made sure it was perfect from start to finish. We really appreciate all the effort you put in to make it go as well as it did. Everyone commented on the venue and how chilled the day felt. Definitely got on the rowdy side on the night time think we had a good go at the bar haha. Can’t stop talking about it. What a day! Thanks again!!
