    "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.

    Sharran – 3 Dec 2018
    "Great site, lots to do and very clean. Staff where all lovely and helpful The photos don’t do the site justice it’s much nicer than it looks"
    Michael – 22 Sep 2018
    "Great cottage and immaculate condition. Good location for the Northumberland coast and easy to get to."
    Anne – 18 Sep 2018
    "Lovely cottage in a good position to easily visit places on the coast and surrounding countryside. Plenty of amenities within the complex if you wanted to use them. We would definitely go back if travelling to this area again."
    Isobel – 19 Jun 2018
    "Very helpful staff, and great cottages in a lovely quiet location. The downsides of a country location were that it took a little longer to travel the country roads to other Northumbrian attractions around the coast. Of the cottage itself - a few spiders had taken up residence in two of the shower units despite the otherwise immaculate facilities. Although the adverts describe the swimming pool and games room, the hours of use were a little restrictive in that they were not available after 7pm. We understood the Health and Safety restrictions on using the pool, but it would have been nice to be able to use the games room and/or snooker table in the evening. We would most definitely use the cottages from this owner again - but might chose to stay at their other site at Seahouses"
    Mary – 26 Feb 2018
    "Lovely cottage. Very clean. Had everything that we needed. We would stay again."
