    About this property

    Part of a cluster of cottages set at the foot of the Cheviots with glorious countryside views and lots of onsite facilities.
    "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.

    "We had a fab holiday here, just a couple of things that I would change, the stairs were very very creaky so when I put my 15mo son to bed downstairs and then went upstairs it. Very nearly woke him. Also with having a 15mo and the kitchen etc upstairs maybe a stair gate would of bin good. We loved it here, just felt it could of bin a little more child friendly"

    "Fantastic collection of cottages out in the middle of nowhere. Lovely staff in the office. Pool, sauna and gym. Only criticism is the fact that it shut so early every day. However, would definitely go back. The red lion in Milford abt 2miles away serves food to die for. Milano in Wooler is a pleasant Italian hidden away.Edinburgh is only abt 60 miles away and is always worth visiting."
