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.

    Visitor Reviews


    " Good points - Heating and cooking with arga great. Plenty of room for all. Bad Points−Having to pay for the pool table that was in the manor house that we had payed for, and we also had to pay £107 for the pool and other games facility's the price in cottages 4 you does not include VAT. Another small point linen did not include towels. "


    " Positives - really good sized rooms, pool table, access to the swimming pool Bad Points−No towels provided and only 1 shower between 15 people. Also had to pay a service charge which we did not expect. "


    " Good points - Location Bad Points−When we arrived we were informed there was an additional £45 to pay and if we wanted to use the log fire that was extra too. We were also informed when the heating would come on, I feel we should've had control over this. There was 1 shower for the whole house which is not sufficient. The décor of the house was very old with chipped wall paint etc. And felt very dreary and drab. Overall we were very disappointed with the accommodation. "
