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 Chatton

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!

Such a lot to do in the area, friendly people with time to talk! Thanks for the welcome pack, a nice touch & we will be taking those fresh, fresh eggs back for our family.

Lovely cakes on arrival, only challenge there was the weather and a slight smell of petroleum after the oil boiler had been refilled. Nothing wrong with it though.

Great place, lovely cosy cottage with great facilities in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

Had a really great stay, cottage was lovely and cosy - really nice touch that all the wood you could need was provided for the log burner. Owners were super friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. Great to be able to take the dogs and the owners advised us on good dog walks where we could let them off their leads. Lovely place, I'm sure we'll be back.

A really great week spent in a lovely cottage that is well equipped and really warm. Enjoyed days out to local towns, beaches, castle and countryside - lots to do in the area and the cottage is fantastically located among them all. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Excellent cosy cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days. Despite dreadful weather outside the cottage was warm and cosy to come back to. Ideally placed between coast and hills. Also we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet rural location, away from most things but near a little village with a nice pub. We used the second bedroom for our clothes and 'stuff' and found the space ideal for 2. Recommended ( Free range eggs and Christmas cake on a welcome tea tray were much appreciated too).
