Doxford Hall Hotel & Spa is a 200-year-old mansion set in 10 acres of private estate in Northumberland, England's northernmost county.

Bamburgh, "Northumberland's most dramatic castle" (Lonely Planet), is around 20 minutes' drive from the hotel, while the Holy Island of Lindisfarne -- a tidal island off the northeast coast of England -- is around 30 minutes' drive away. The edge of the 400-square-mile Northumberland National Park is around 30 minutes' drive away.

The AA praises the hotel's "luxuriously furnished" and "very attractive" interior. The entrance hall has an impressive carved-wood staircase, while the AA-Rosette restaurant features ornate ceilings, chandeliers and a stone fireplace.

Spa and leisure facilities include a gym, an indoor swimming pool, two spa baths, a sauna and a steam room. Guests can relax in the Morning Room or in the Library, which has over 2000 books. Outside, the gardens include a yew-tree maze and a paved terrace where afternoon tea is served in fine weather.

Bedrooms are "light-filled, ridiculously large - even the so-called standard 'classic' - and handsomely furnished with carved bedsteads, wardrobes and dressing tables" (The Daily Telegraph). Standard Rooms (Classic and Coach House) are split between the main house and the coach house, a short walk away. Executive Rooms are in the main house. Wi-Fi is free.

The hotel is very grand and we felt special. The spa experience was good and not busy at all. It was my husbands birthday and the hotel provided chocolates and card which was thoughtful. The restaurant was plush and we felt we were really fine dining which was great.

The only minor comment I’d like to say about the hotel was the time we had to wait for our food during our evening meal. It was a good half hour between courses - way too long.
