Homemade Meals at Doxford
While staying at Doxford Cottages some of you may wish to have a special meal provided for you and we have some fabulous options available.
We have a range of farmhouse food available from a deep freeze in the reception, which can be pre-ordered by email to us (at LEAST two weeks' notice prior to your arrival) as we may need to order specially. These can be put in your cottage freezer for your use during your stay or left out for your arrival, just let us know.
You can also pick some up spontaneously whilst on holiday ( we don't keep the large size in stock).
The food offers the finest seasonal cooking using local produce and they are freshly prepared family sized dishes.
