"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 (refs MDW, MED, MFO, MGG, MGH, MJB, MJC and MJD) 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. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    It would have been appreciated if you supplied bath towels. When packing, bath towels beach towels and pool towels are very heavy and bulky.

    Lovely, comfortable house. Very clean and well kept. Swimming pool was very nice. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Could do with an extra shower in the house with a big group but facilities in the leisure centre were fine and covered any gaps.

    This is an excellent choice for a large family get together. As my grandson said it was "living in a mansion". There is masses of space and the swimming pool, sauna, table tennis room, pool room and snooker room in the complex were a great bonus, though it was a pity they were not usually available in the evenings. The rooms are comfortable, but not luxurious and not too precious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had excellent weather, which helps. I would raise two points. There is a hidden charge of £100, tucked away at page 3 of the confirmation which is for "the additional hearing in the changing rooms and lighting of the paths and car parking areas"!The second point is that the pool table in the house costs 20p a game, had only one functional cue and eats pool balls (stuck).

    Excellent place for young children to enjoy. Secure garden and good leisure facilities. One shower for a property of this size is too few. Improved lighting may be appreciated by some but very comfortable in a homely way.
