    Within this spectacular barn development are four unique and individual holiday apartments, together with a 400-year-old Grade II listed farmhouse, which was a former bastle and is ideal for larger parties. The delightful Farmhouse (ref MWH) is ideal for people who appreciate the indulgence of space in truly spectacular surroundings. Alternatively, for the larger group or family gathering, all four apartments (refs MWJ, MWK, MWL and MWM) can be booked together, providing unique accommodation for up to 14 people. The Barns have been awarded Northumberland strikes Gold, Silver and Bronze at the 2015 VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. This is the perfect location to get away from it all - away from the noise and pace of the city and the preoccupations of the daily workload. Falstone Barns provide a place of refuge, allowing batteries to be recharged and imaginations re-inspired.
    Head for the wide open spaces where the cries of curlews and skylarks can be heard. Summer brings meadows of wildflowers and clouds of butterflies. Crisp winter mornings and endless horizons mean this is truly a place for all seasons. For the ruthlessly energetic, nearby Kielder Water offers water sports aplenty and Kielder Forest boasts some of the most challenging mountain bike trails in the UK, all within a 5-minute journey. The country sports enthusiast can opt for a day on the exclusive stretch of Britain’s best salmon river, the North Tyne, a day’s shooting at clays or a game over Falstone Barns’ own grounds; all this can be arranged on request. Not forgetting the golfer either, the nearby village of Bellingham boasts a very highly regarded 18-hole course with day tickets and weekend specials available. The internationally acclaimed courses of Matfen, Slaley and Goswick are a little further afield.
    Falstone Barns are committed to providing sumptuous apartments which also combine the practicalities required by real families. Bedrooms are designed to allow the sleeping of up to three children in a room with cots and cribs available for babies if required. At Falstone Barns, children can simply revel in the freedom afforded by the secure play areas around the courtyard and an unrivalled countryside playground on the doorstep. Beyond the estate is the open Northumbrian countryside - fresh air and things to discover, tales of knights and dragons, princesses and wizards. It is a magical place waiting to be experienced. And the adventure doesn’t end when the lights go out! Take a trip to the nearby Kielder Observatory, where the secrets of the Universe can be discovered. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

    "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.

    This splendid eight-bedroom manor house was once the main house of the estate. It is set separately from the courtyard, and has its own fine walled garden. Offering spacious accommodation for up to fifteen people, it has a utility room with pool table. Entrance hall leading to large sitting room with open fire and dining room. Snug with open fire and TV. Airy farmhouse kitchen with Aga. Cloakroom with toilet. Maid’s pantry/laundry. First floor: Very large master double bedroom with (5ft bed), and sitting area with TV.
