About Doxford Barns

Northumberland, NE675DY

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.

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 160 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.

Most Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Keilly Ann Arbuthnot, on 30 May 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Apr 2017

We can't recommend Doxford Barns enough for a wedding. Got married in this simply stunning venue just over a month ago and we had the most amazing day. All the staff worked so hard both prior to and on the big day to make the day run so smoothly. Nothing was too much hassle and communications were responded to promptly. Food was fabulous (we had the afternoon tea catered to our taste) and John the chef was amazing. All in all the most wonderful day- thank you so much Doxford Barns and all the fabulous staff :)

Perfect Wedding Feast
Venue Service

By Susan Olney, on 01 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2016

This turned out to be one special day in every way. The venue is breathtakingly beautiful and the food was absolutely fantastic - from the traditional roast beef at the wedding feast, to the 'full English' the following morning. Perfect. Your chef knows what he's doing. Superb.

Could not have asked for more
Venue Service

By Emily Smith, on 09 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Jul 2016

A huge thank you to Doxford Barns and all your team - Karen, Jess and John especially. You made the whole weekend run so smoothly and we couldn't have asked for more. We had the most wonderful, magical weekend and the wedding of my dreams! John's food surpassed all expectations and was incredible - from dinner on Friday to the whopping great breakfast on Sunday - much needed by some sore heads! Jess went above and beyond driving us to the lake for pics and Karen was a calming influence on a nervous bride! I was so sad to drive away on Sunday from the most beautiful, romantic venue in the north east! Thank you thank you thank you!
