Stunning 3-Day Wedding!

My wife and I held our wedding ceremony and reception at Doxford Barns in October, and it was perfect! The venue is beautiful and exactly what we were looking for with our theme. All our guests were equally complimentary and said it felt warm and inviting. The staff were fantastic, and we couldn鈥檛 have asked for better service, particularly from our wonderful coordinators Jess and Charlotte and the entire bar and catering team. We felt very well looked after all weekend. The food was delicious, the cottages (and the glamping pods) were quaint and homely, and the d茅cor was stunning.

We opted for a 3-day Friday-Sunday wedding and are so glad we did. The venue could not have been more accommodating and didn鈥檛 hesitate to let a small group of us hang around on Sunday afternoon while we waited for our train. Jess and Charlotte were so helpful and put up with all of our irritating last-minute tweaks and changes, without complaint and with a smile. All the recommended suppliers were great, bar a slight hiccup with the DJ, which was resolved quickly and efficiently, and without panic!

We are so grateful for everyone and everything, and would absolutely recommend Doxford Barns to anyone in the future. 10/10, 5 Stars!

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!

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.

We had the best time!

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.
Also Amanda was absolutely fantastic all weekend, we didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing and she was so lovely and friendly and really made us feel so comfortable. We couldn鈥檛 have wished for anyone better to have run our day. Please pass this on to her as we are so grateful.

Amazing weekend

Our daughter Amy and her groom, Chad were married here and what an amazing venue. The cottages were filled with family and guests and they were cosy and comfortable.
The whole pace looked wonderful and the staff could not have been more helpful, working hard to ensure everyone had a great time. Our family and friends were very impressed with the venue and the chosen menu which was vegetarian, was amazing. Thank you for making their special day a truly memorable experience for Amy, Chad and all their guests.

Can not fault the service!

We had an amazing time on Saturday and can not fault the service everyone at Doxford Barns provided on our big day.
We are on honeymoon now but please be assured we will be putting nothing but good things on your social media as the day was fantastic.
Thank you again for all the work you done and the work your team put in.

So so

The venue is ok and the accommodation is ok my main bit of advice is to watch how much you are being charged at the bar because despite having a list of the bar prices we were charged nearly treble the price we paid for a drink at 2pm compared with buying the same drink at 8pm at which point the bar staff just created there own price list and then to make things worse a guest that I was with was charged 拢2 for a slice of lemon for her gin and tonic.

Everything was seamless

We booked a 3-day wedding & got married 8th June 2019.
The cottages were spotless and really well equipped, we had a great time in them on Friday night after decorating the venue.
We can't fault Abi, Gemma or any of the staff at our wedding - everything was seamless on the day and communication running up to the weekend was brilliant.
All our guests raved about the food and the venue itself - we have to agree! In the evening when it cleared up our guests loved the outside spaces and the fire pits.
