"A gracious manor and cottages of mellow stone . . . between history-steeped hills and a coast of golden sands . . ."

Standing proudly at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, on the edge of the glorious Northumberland National Park and only 15 miles from the alternating sands and rocks of the coastline, Akeld Manor cottages offer the perfect setting for a holiday in England’s fascinating and beautiful Border country. The gracious Manor House and its cluster of cottages and mellow stone buildings have been sensitively renovated and converted to create an outstanding collection of holiday properties – all with shared use of a superb choice of facilities. A leisure building houses a wide range of amenities (available daily, all the year round) which include an indoor heated swimming pool with changing and shower facilities, a Jacuzzi and sauna. There is a well-equipped multi-gym, too, and the first floor of the building features a large games room (with pool table, table tennis and football game) and a separate snooker room with full-size antique table. The cottages are set in acres of shared grounds, which offer space for relaxing and for children to play, and they lie within 2 miles of the shops and inns at Wooler.
The Northumberland National Park stretches south through Kielder and Wark Forests as far as Hadrian’s Wall, and north to the Scottish border. Long stretches of sand can be found lining the coast south of Berwick-upon-Tweed (16 miles). At Beal (13 miles), the road to Holy Island runs gently down to the shore, where it becomes a causeway covered and impassable at high tide.
These quaint cottages, some of which have originally been cartsheds and byres are charmingly set in small groups within the spacious and colourful grounds. The large Manor House (which provides accommodation for parties of 15), also has a splendid large walled garden allowing total privacy. The setting of these cosy cottages is intriguing, many with small courtyards and gardens, a truly interesting and imaginative conversion full of detail and character – the individual and tasteful interiors are delightful. Shops 2 miles.

Three steps up to entrance hall. Sitting room with dining area and, fitted into recess, a quality fitted wall-bed (for +2). Modern fitted kitchen. Twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. Separate bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet. Short flight of steps to double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    Excellent base for both coast and countryside. So many places to visit, all within 30 miles. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable. A little chilly the first night as storage heaters took a time to kick in, but fine after that. Quiet, peaceful location, enjoyed heated pool and games room, bats and house martens! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
