Welcome to Doxford Barns, a truly unique barn-wedding venue. Situated on a 550-acre private country estate in the heart of Northumberland and surrounded by picturesque, unspoiled countryside, our stunning venue offers complete exclusivity to you and your guests.
We stray away from the 'norm' at Doxford Barns, offering both one-day and three-day wedding options. Our three-day wedding package provides you with an extended wedding celebration. This gives you the chance to relax and fully immerse yourself in the idyllic Northumberland countryside and the option for you and up to 41 guests to stay in our on-site cottage accommodation for two nights, with a full culinary experience. We also have 5 fantastic glamping pods that can sleep up to 20 further overnight guests.
Our one-day wedding option gives you a more traditional choice of celebrating your wedding in a single day, for which Doxford Barns will be exclusive to you and your guests, along with the option of an overnight stay in our cottage accommodation.
Our specialism lies in creating wedding experiences that are completely bespoke to you. We are focused on providing a blank canvas to help you tailor and create a personal wedding experience, which accomplishes all you need and want.
Doxford Barns is characterised by grade II listed, 18th century stone and oak barns, and complemented by modern architecture. The Threshing Hall is filled with original features and festoon lighting, to create a romantic setting for ceremonies of up to 180 guests. Your guests will be in awe when they walk into the Great Barn, which is cocooned around a spectacular oak frame. The vast windows overlook the rolling countryside, creating a stunning backdrop for your wedding breakfast. The capacity of the Great Barn is 180 day guests and 250 evening guests.

Doxford Barns organisation unbeatable!
Luxury Rustic is how the Best Man summed it up. We had a perfect winter wedding, joyous from start to finish. Superbly orchestrated by Abi at Doxford Barns who kept us on track from the Friday night supper, through the main event to the Sunday brunch seamlessly. Great cottages on site warmed with real fires and an aga and the fire pit and twinkling lights outside the barn were magical. Northumberland we love you, Doxford Barns organisation unbeatable!Sent on 10/04/2020

We had the most amazing day!
We had our December wedding reception at Doxford Barns; we had the most amazing day and a large part of that was down to the venue and the incredible staff who work there - I honestly can't praise it and them enough! The service was flawless but still personal, and we heard so many positive comments about the operations staff from our guests on the day. Add to that the incredible food they served us (delicious and very generous portions) and of course, the venue itself is absolutely beautiful. We were very lucky to have Abi as our wedding coordinator, who went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. A huge thank you to Abi, Sharon and Lyndsey (who went above and beyond on the day!) and all of the other staff who made us feel special start to finish.Sent on 10/04/2020

Just a quick email to thank you and the team for doing such a great job hosting our wedding last Saturday. We had the best time and all of our guests were completely in awe of the venue.Sent on 22/12/2019
Also Amanda was absolutely fantastic all weekend, we didn’t have to worry about a thing and she was so lovely and friendly and really made us feel so comfortable. We couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have run our day. Please pass this on to her as we are so grateful.
