Find cottages in NorthumberlandVisit Northumberland

Northumberland's distinctive and magnificent landscape offers something for everyone. From the breathtaking views of the Cheviot Hills to the often deserted golden sandy coastline; you'll find the magic right on your doorstep.

Spanning 1,935 square miles, Northumberland is a land of big skies and even bigger scenery. A cottage holiday here offers the perfect opportunity to explore medieval abbeys and rolling countryside, Roman remains and fantastic beaches. There's so much to see and do in this inspiring area, and a cottage holiday is the best way to do it.

Northumberland's most well-known attraction, Hadrian's Wall is rich in history and steeped in Roman heritage. A feast for the eyes, marvel as the 80 miles of fortified stone and archaeological wonders which offer a great insight into how the Romans lived.

Explore the ancient castles that sit along the atmospheric coastline and delve into the past at one of the many museums in the region. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne has great nature reserves and you may even spot the resident grey seals on the neighbouring Farne Islands. Northumberland is one of England's unspoilt regions; you'll find rare wildlife, diverse habitats and bustling seabird colonies, all virtually untouched by human hands.

There's nothing like exploring the great outdoors, and you'll find lots of stunning Northumberland cottages dotted throughout friendly towns and villages, all perfectly located for walking, hiking and cycling. With cosy pubs and welcoming inns along the way, Northumberland's extensive foot and cycle paths criss-cross over green pastures and open countryside. Sailing enthusiasts can cast off from lively coastal towns and fishing villages to take in the spectacular surroundings of the area's unspoilt and wildlife-rich coast. And if you like your watersports wet and wild, you won't be disappointed with Northumberland. Kayaking, waterskiing, powerboating and windsurfing can all be found here.

There's also some great fishing in the area, with popular spots such as the rivers Tweed and Tyne, both claiming to be the best Atlantic salmon rivers in Britain. But if you'd prefer a more relaxing pace of life, Northumberland is home to a wide range of speciality shops, markets and galleries. And from fish and chips to a la carte cuisine, there's a plethora of cafes, pubs and restaurants all serving up delicious home cooked food with the local produce grown and caught in the area.

"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.

This splendid eight-bedroom manor house was once the main house of the estate. It is set separately from the courtyard, and has its own fine walled garden. Offering spacious accommodation for up to fifteen people, it has a utility room with pool table. Entrance hall leading to large sitting room with open fire and dining room.
