Fox Cover is the ideal dog-friendly holiday cottage for a couple, and offers outstanding luxury self-catering accommodation for a relaxing holiday in Northumberland. Designed as a one-bedroom holiday cottage, Fox Cover provides ample living space with stunning rural views from the conservatory and private terrace that look out towards Doxford Lake.

Fox Cover is entered through a conservatory into a huge open-plan living area measuring 29ft in length. One end of the open-plan area has a fully-fitted kitchen with granite worktops, tiled floor and oak dining table to seat four guests. As in all the cottages at Doxford Cottages, the kitchen is fully-equipped; we have thought of everything a cook could possibly require for a superb break.

The light and airy sitting room has a wood-burning stove. There is an LCD smart television, Wi-Fi, and a good selection of books to enjoy.  

The double bedroom is superbly appointed and offers a choice when booking of either a super-king-size bed or two single beds. The en-suite bathroom has a bath and a roll-in shower, toilet and basin. For guests needing accessibility, there is ample room for a wheelchair.
