Overview

Warm, spacious, well-equipped cottages in peaceful, coastal locations, near cycle tracks and walking routes, between the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and the pretty village of Bamburgh. We also offer one of the UK’s most unique and romantic places to stay - the beautiful Ducket. This Grade II listed stone tower was originally an 18th century dovecote but has now been restored to 5* accreditation with 21st century facilities.  All our properties have Wi-Fi.

To make use of the superb night sky and star gazing opportunities in Northumberland, we have a purpose-built star-gazing observatory at Outchester, complete with state of the Pro 120mm Pro Refractor telescope. This is free of charge for all guests.  Extra telescopes are also available.

Guests can also enjoy sailing in a Pelican 15.15 three-bench canoe, make use of our private bird-watching hide on our land overlooking Budle Bay and cook alfresco on a large mobile barbeque for outdoor eating. All at no extra charge. 

The 65ft high Ducket is the perfect 5 star couples’ hideaway retreat. Warmed by ground source heating, the tower has five floors with a quaint, circular room on each floor. An open spiral staircase connects each floor. The Ducket has magnificent panoramic views of Lindisfarne Castle, the sea and Cheviot Hills from its top floor.  

Our 16 cottages at Outchester and Ross come in various sizes and sleep 2, 4 or 6.  All are extremely well equipped and five are heated by wood-chip boiler.  Each cottage has its own off-road parking, as well as private, well-maintained gardens with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Three of our cottages - Wagtail, Curlew and Hedgehope Cottages - are dog friendly. 

Five cottages at Ross are close to the family farm and three cottages are nearer the sea along a private road. All Ross properties are walking distance across the dunes to lovely Ross Sands.

A superb five star cottage, The Beacons, at Ross sleeps four, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, free-standing stove, smart kitchen, sitting room and a large garden.

At Outchester, the cottages are situated around attractive, landscaped grounds, with play area for small children and include two 5-star cottages each sleeping two.

We offer visitors the perfect location – off the beaten track, yet still close to Northumberland’s beautiful beaches, magnificent castles, charming market towns, the Farne Islands, Holy Island, the Cheviot Hills, Alnwick Gardens, and the Border countryside.

Perefectly placed cottage


cockneyshaun, Wetherby, United Kingdom
We stayed at Puffin Cottage at Outchester. We booked it because it was for 2 people. The cottage was very spacious and had all amenities you could want. W/MC and Tumble Drier (bot used by us), dishwasher, iron and board etc. Everything was very clean. Located in farm land, adjacent to a country road and nicely secluded. 6 of the 8 cottages were occupied when we stayed for a week but no noise from other guests which included a number of dogs and a baby. Ideally located with Bamburgh and Dunstbrough castles, Farne Islands, Lindisfarne, Chillingham, all within a 10mile radius. Northumberland Coastal Walk runs pass so plenty of places to walk. A number of nice restaurants, pubs,tea rooms and cafes locally. With Sunnyhills Farm shop a couple of miles up the road for fresh, bread, eggs, pies, cakes etc. Would definaterly return and recommend. PS - the beach near to the Ross Cottages was beautiful and empty.

One week at Curlew cottage Outchester.


aubrey m, Bourne End, United Kingdom
A third visit to Outchester, my wife the dog and I. Very compfortable cottages well equiped and looked after. Grounds and individual gardens also well looked after by DAVE who is always very friendly and helpful. We go to Notthumberland at least twice a year as the walks, beaches and scenery are second to none.

The Ducket - Quirky and original: a historic building skillfully renovated


Lynne R, Sheffield, United Kingdom
We first saw the Ducket last year when we walked the Northumberland coastal path and were tempted to return to experience the magnificent views and unique accommodation. We were not disappointed - it has been sensitively renovated, is well equipped and has many luxurious touches such as cosy bathrobes and miniature bath products. The views are amazing: coastal and inland to the Cheviots. With minimal light pollution there are excellent views of the stars. It is heated by a ground source pump and underfloor heating augmented by portable heaters in each room - the additional heating was welcome along with throws to cozy up in - at the end of the day it is a tall stone building which challenges modern heating expectations (especially in the gales we experienced during our stay). If you sleep lightly the ground source pump might disturb you (I was fine - my husband less so). Bamborough is a good walk along country lanes, Budle Bay and the beach and back along dunes at high tide. The Northumberland coastline is beautiful - great for walking , bird watching, lunching in pubs on seafood. Look out for microbreweries especially at Low Newton. Ross beach is long, beautiful and very quiet.

Christmas week


Paul C, Oakham, United Kingdom
Easy to find with each cottage having two private off road parking spaces. Our cottage, Curlew cottage, was dog friendly. On arrival it was spotless and warm. Both bedrooms had televisions and the master was en-suite. The main bathroom had an excellent and spacious shower. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a washer and dryer in a cupboard in the hallway. The living room was large and comfortable with an electric flame effect fire which did not need to have it's heat turned on. If you are thinking of booking one of these cottages stop thinking and book it, you will not be disappointed. There is so much to see nearby.

Outchester & Ross Farm Cottages replied: We're so pleased you enjoyed Christmas week in Curlew Cottage. Thank you for posting your review. Much appreciated. Kind regards Kate
