Description

Traditional stone cottage with private courtyard and shared access to large grounds, swimming pool and games room. Great central base.


"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 10am-5pm, all year round, although these are subject to change) which include an indoor heated swimming pool with changing and shower facilities, a Jacuzzi and sauna (occasionally shared with other properties at Akeld Manor not featured on this website). 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.

A traditional, stone single-storey cottage in a lovely courtyard setting. Entrance hall. Sitting room with dining area. Modern fitted, well-equipped kitchen. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet.

    While the accommodation was of a reasonable standard it tended more towards average rather than outstanding. A dishwasher would normally be standard and while the kitchen was reasonably equipped for two, but only just adequate for four people who would find continuous washing up annoying. No problem with cleanliness. The hot storage heater in the bathroom was too close to the WC for comfort! These days WiFi is pretty well essential for even a techno-luddite like me so it was surprising that it was not made available. Needing to go to a local pub for the weather forecast was a poor do.

    The property was very quiet and had fantastic scenery around it. The staff were are very helpful and friendly. The village was a short drive down the road and the food was excellent in every restaurant we went to. Very family friendly. Our second year here and will no doubt be back next year. The only negative I had about this property was no drier, this was a draw back especially as we use the pool at least once a day.

    We visited off-season in March at a quiet time. The cottage was quite basic but was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The pool was perfect for a young family and the staff were very friendly.
