Rustic-chic glamping pods near the sandy beaches of the Northumberland Coast

Doxford Farm Camping is located on a family-run working farm in Northumberland, within reach of the coast and some of the region's best sandy beaches. Owned by husband-and-wife team Katryna and John, the pair wanted to create a site that allowed visitors to experience the best the historic county has to offer with their loved ones, be that couples seeking a romantic getaway or families out for an adventure. Doxford ticks that box and then some, with its glamping pods providing that warm, rustic rural feeling and its bell tents situated in unspoilt countryside, both allowing access to miles of woodland walks and sunny days by the sea.

There are a variety of options here to suit most varieties of camper and glamper. Doxford's premium offering is its luxury pods, unique in their design with a vintage aesthetic teamed with modern touches. They have WiFi, a compact kitchen area and en-suite facilities and pets are welcome too if you're planing on bringing your dog for long walks on the beach.

If you're looking for a more affordable option, the bell tents let you experience the back-to-basics vibe of a campsite without the need to pitch a tent or blow up a mattress. Each bell tent also has an individual bathroom and a stove, ensuring you also have the necessary amenities. Or, if you're a seasoned camper with your own vehicle, there are also pitches here for caravans and motorhomes, with electric hook-up available – though tents are not permitted.

And once you're settled in, it's off to explore what Northumberland has to offer. The popular Beadnell Bay Beach, a horseshoe-shaped haven for swimming and watersports, is only a short drive away, as is the remote Longhoughton Beach and the secluded Spittal Beach. This is miles and miles of coast, presenting beautiful views of the North Sea encompassing a variety of landscapes. Then overlooking the coast is Dunstanburgh Castle, ruins dating back to the 14th century that can be reached by a scenic walk from the fishing village of Craster. Needless to say, you won't be stuck for things to do at Doxford.

From the host
Doxford Farm Camping is based on our family-run, working farm, which is located in beautiful North Northumberland. You will be staying in stunning countryside with miles of farm walks through woodland, lakeside and fields and only four miles from the nearest sandy beaches. We are in an ideal location to visit all of Northumberland’s finest attractions and only a few miles from Alnwick, Bamburgh Castle, the Farne Islands, Seahouses and Chillingham Castle, to mention a few. We are a small, friendly site that has plenty of outdoor space for all the family to enjoy - even those with four paws! A perfect place for relaxing and exploring - with unspoilt skies to sit beneath with a roaring fire and a warm cup of hot chocolate.Dogs are welcome and our location and set up is ideal for families and couples to take a break and soak in all Northumberland has to offer.
