About Jane Ord

We run a family farm in North Northumberland, a beautiful part of the world, steeped in history & panoramic landscapes. Nature, wildlife & our animals are our neighbours, we enjoy sharing them with our visitors.

Jane Ord purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Jane Ord chose Northumberland Coast

Groom's cottage historically was occupied by the head Groom when the farm was a country hunting park & racing stables. It has been refurbished & is now a cosy retreat close to the hills & the coast.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage sits within it's own walled garden on the edge of our farm. There are many walks from the door step,amble down the river side or go up the hill to the unique, ancient cup & ring marks. Chatton village is a 10 min walk & has a post office/shop, pub & historic church.

Within 5/6 miles you can be on Northumberland's amazing beaches, canoeing on it's rivers, walking it's hills in the national park or visiting one of it's many castles.

Chatton fishing lakes are within easy walking distance where you do not need a licence to fish.

What a lovely cosy cottage in a great location. Barney the dog is exhausted.



Thank you for a lovely stay, a real home from home. We loved the cakes & eggs!

A very cosy comfortable cottage, ideal for exploring the coast and countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week exploring the beautiful coastline as well as the fells and valleys of the Cheviots and the Coquetdale on foot and on our bicycles. It was made even better by being able to come back to such a warm and cosy cottage. We had lovely log fires in the evenings and it was nice to stay in for supper as well as enjoy the local pubs! The cottage is very well equipped and the owners were very welcoming and helpful.....delicious cake and eggs on arrival! A perfect place to enjoy the best of Northumberland! Thank you!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely cottage for 3 nights at the end of October. It's very cosy and well equipped with all home comforts to hand. Nice garden with open views of the countryside. There is so much to see and do nearby certainly more than we could fit in. Nice little welcome pack on arrival which I always think is a nice touch. Would certainly recommend this cottage and would have no hesitation returning.

lovely ,clean and friendly

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was clean ,well equipped and we had such a friendly welcome.It was great for the two of us with two dogs. Perfect settling for sitting out in the garden and relaxing and near to the coast for beach dog walks.Also near enough to slip over the boarder to Scotland on a couple of occasions. We would recommend this cottage. The village pub was good too for food and a warm welcome.

Absolutely Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet cottage was perfect for the two of us with our two dogs. Ideally located for the coast and the national park, with views of the Cheviot Hills from the garden. There is a great pub in the village and the nearby town of Wooler provided more Pubs, takeaways, and a supermarket that opened until 10.

The owners provided a warm welcome and cottage was clean, comfortably furnished and very well equiped.

Our break turned into a lovely holiday.
