Doxford Farm Camping: Grass pitches

General

  • 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.

    Everything. A lovely site; quiet with just 7 ‘touring/camping’ pitches - 5 with EHU, 2 without. They have some glamping bell tents and some large luxury pods. There are 3 unisex bathrooms, each with a shower, toilet, sink and hair dryer. The pitch was level. It was great value for the night. Close enough to the sea but far enough away to replace the sound of gulls with birdsong.
    The owners were very friendly and welcoming and have plans to develop the offer on their small site.

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).

  • Northumberland Coast (3.6 miles)
