It was our first time in Northumberland and although we had heard many good things about it, were still surprised by its beauty, its relaxed atmosphere and its friendly people. Our holiday was made perfect by the pretty cottage we stayed in at Outchester and Ross. Dovecot cottage was well presented throughout, clean, tidy and had all the amenities we could have required. The exterior spaces were equally as apealing with large well kept gardens, which were secure so and ideal for our two young children - the play area was also well kept and our children played happily there each evening with other children staying in the cottages. The rear patio was perfect for outdoor dining and for watching the beautiful sunsets with a glass of wine. With only a few miles to the beach at Bamburgh and equidistant between Alnwick in the South or Berwick to the North, the location was perfect. We will most definitely return to Northumberland and 'Outchester and Ross cottages' will be where we shall stay. Perfect!
