Description

"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.
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.

About the local area

Wooler is a small, stone-built town on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and at the foot of the Cheviot Hills. It is one of the main towns along the popular long-distance footpath of St Cuthbert's Way, which runs between Melrose in the Scottish borders and Holy Island.

Situated in the northern part of the county close to the Scottish border, Wooler is an excellent base for a holiday or for exploring the surrounding countryside. With quiet backroads and bridleways in the area is ideal for many activities, including cycling, horse riding, fishing and rock climbing. To the east is the magnificent coastline of Northumberland, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coast offers spectacular scenery from Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to Seahouses and the birdwatcher's paradise The Farne Islands.

The town itself has interesting and specialist shops and cafes. There is an abundance of local food, grocery stores and a working pottery studio, making Wooler the leading shopping centre in the area. The rich flora and fauna are held in high regards.

To the North East you'll find the Ford and Etal estates, an area that offers visitors everything from its own steam railway line to Northumberland's only thatched pub. The estate is superb for outdoor enthusiasts and footpaths and bridleways criss-cross the area. Cycle hire is available locally and there are numerous pubs, tearooms and restaurants offering refreshment when you've done your exploring.

Situated to the west of Wooler are the Cheviot Hills marking the border with Scotland. They are the most northerly hills in England and cover some 400 square miles. A large proportion of these predominantly green, rounded hills lie at the heart of the Northumberland National Park. These hills offer a wild and romantic landscape to explore.
