  • Small, dog-friendly and family-run farm site five miles from the beach
  • A 15-minute drive from Craster, Seahouses and Alnwick Castle
  • Large field for kids and dogs to play; pubs and restaurants nearby
Nearby Northumberland sand, stargazing and plenty of scope for coastal or country walks… what a set of attractions Doxford Farm Camping has. As a small, family-run site five miles from the nearest sandy beach, there’s a lot to like about this place – especially for those who want to stay somewhere that welcomes dogs, children and couples with open arms too. It’s all well-maintained here, and some might say quite on the luxurious side, given that the communal facilities include three large shower rooms each with a large power shower, basin, loo, mirror and hair dryer. So, feel free to dress up for any visits to the local pubs and restaurants within five to 15 minutes’ drive of the site – they sell delicious food locally sourced from the land and sea. What sort of places can you set sail to, then? Low Newton-by-the Sea beach (10 minutes’ drive) and Embleton Bay (15 minutes) are some of the closest sandy stretches. Further out, between 15 minutes and 20 minutes’ drive, are more dog-friendly beaches and coastal havens like Bamburgh, Seahouses, Craster and Beadnell Bay (and Alnwick is 15 minutes’ drive inland for attractions like a castle and a huge second-hand book shop with model trains). Back at your base, which is located on a family-run working farm, there’s heaps of space and peace for walks, stargazing or stopping to smell the large bank filled with daffodils and tulips in the spring or wildflowers and other plants in the summer. There’s a large field for kids, dogs (and any big kids) to let off steam, as well as a pot wash area with a large double sink and hot and cold water to deal with any barbecue leftovers.

Electric grass touring pitch

Liked: Tidy site with good, clean facilities. Owners Katryna and John were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Weather conditions were AWFUL and all the grass pitches were unusable - John & Katryna sorted us out and made sure we had somewhere to pitch for our stay despite the ground conditions. Three toilet/shower cubicles (clean & tidy), five EHU pitches, two non-EHU pitches, small information hut, owners on-hand at short notice for assistance. Beautiful area and lots of places to visit, site was easily located and handy for the places we wanted to see.

Disliked: Nothing. The ground conditions may mean the 7 grass pitches might need upgrading in time.

Electric grass touring pitch

Liked: Such a beautiful campsite and so peaceful. Proved to be the perfect spot for us to camp for the very first time as a family of 3 (& dog!) Amazing location too for us to explore some of our favourite beaches in the area. 10/10 and will be recommending to family/friends.

Local attractions

Here primarily for the sea? With sand dunes, castle ruins in the background and a view of Lindisfarne Island, Bamburgh beach (20 minutes’ drive) is a pretty good place to start. Dine on the classic Craster (15 minutes) kippers before taking a fishing trip from the harbour or head for Seahouses (15 minutes) if you fancy spending some time puffin and seal spotting on boat trips to the Farne Islands. Holy Island (35 minutes) is another island destination, accessible by car depending upon the tide, with a huge castle and priory. Compare notes with the castle in Alnwick (15 minutes), which runs re-enactments, jesting and other historical workshops. Leave enough time for an earl grey tea at Howick Hall Gardens & Arboretum (15 minutes) too – after all, the earl it’s named after once lived there. Local wedding venues include Doxford Barns (15 minutes’ walk), Charlton Hall (20 minutes), Doxford Hall Hotel and Spa (five minutes’ drive) and Newton Hall (10 minutes).
