Dartmouth House Ref: PDDC

Originally owned by the Earl of Dartmouth and situated in the Georgian market town of Olney, Dartmouth House has records dating back to 1745. A spacious and comfortable, stone-built roadside property with the owners’ home close by, it can sleep up to twelve people. It has retained many of the original features - such as flagstone, wooden and quarry-tiled floors, beamed ceilings and fireplaces. The large, south-facing, stone-walled garden is enclosed, and its beautiful aspects may be enjoyed in all types of weather when dining or relaxing on the large verandah, which is attached to the house.

A few minutes’ drive leads to Woburn Abbey, Castle Ashby and Bletchley Park. There is plenty to keep children entertained - from Gullivers World and Woburn Safari Park to the popular Whipsnade Zoo. For the more energetic, there are vast areas of outstanding walking and cycling country, including Salcey Forest and Emberton Park. Milton Keynes offers a different experience with its cinemas, excellent shopping, the Milton Keynes Theatre (the most popular theatre outside London) and a huge choice of sporting activites including the Snowdome.

"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.

The Chantry Ref: KAAO


Dating back to 1815, this beautiful, quirky, thatched property, forming the major part of the original vicarage, is the perfect location for a family holiday or for friends to get together. Described by the Georgian Group, dedicated to preserving buildings from this period, as ‘one of the very best examples of the cottage orne genre in the country’. On entering this Grade II* listed property, guests cannot help but be impressed with the large 24ft circular reception hall, containing a 600 year old ruud screen, reputedly conferscated from Kingsteignton chuch 200 years ago, this is the door way into a 10 sided dining room. Leading off the reception hall is an elegant sweeping cantilevered staircase rising to the galleried landing. Natural light is admitted through a rooftop lantern cupola positioned directly over the reception hall and landing. There are many original features within the property, including the Gothic windows, door alcoves and the doors leading to the dining room which are 600 years old. Approached via a sweeping driveway passing a gatehouse, the secluded gardens feature a cobbled terrace beneath the veranda and a wide variety of established trees, shrubs and plants. Directly from the rear of the breakfast room, a 10ft by 20ft plunge pool occupies a completely private position with a timber decked terrace. A shaped lawn adjoins the terrace having a flagged patio under a gazebo, making this area of the garden ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. Although close to a road, the property offers privacy. The property has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard, and offers spacious themed bedrooms, including chrome, Greek, African, Arabian and flowers. There are many beaches within a short drive, and Dartmoor is approximately 20 minutes away. The Times newspaper voted Dawlish Warren as one of the ‘Top Ten Places by the Sea’, and is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With plenty to see and do, Dawlish Warren ticks all the boxes if you’re looking for a traditional seaside holiday. As part of the Exe Estuary, Dawlish Warren is one of the most important areas for wildlife and wading birds in the country. Thousands of birds come to feed or to spend the winter here, attracting bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts. The surrounding dunes and grassland are home to over 600 types of flowering plants. Dawlish Warren is internationally recognised as an important ecological site. From here, gain access to the various hides dotted throughout the habitats on-site. Shaldon beach is where visitors will find some of the most spectacular coastline in South Devon. Because of its location and the way the sands have formed, it’s perfect for a number of water sports, including sailing, fishing, swimming, canoeing and rowing, Shaldon is close to attractions such as the Shaldon Wildlife Trust, Dartmoor and Haytor and Homeyards Botanical Gardens. Alternatively, visitors can challenge themselves on the Templar Way, an 18-mile walk that follows the export route for granite taken from Dartmoor, passing along the Haytor Granite tramway and the Stover Canal, before finally passing through Newton Abbot towards Teignmouth and Shaldon. There are many NT properties close by, including Agatha Christie’s summer home at Greenway. Paignton Zoo, Model Village, Cockington, Sea life Centre, Brixham, Dartmouth and Dartmoor are all close by.

The Cumbrian Heavy Horse centre is nearby where you can ride, visit the tea room or admire the horses, you may even see the horses trekking across the land just below the farmhouse. Also in the valley is Brockwood Hall which has a restaurant, bar and heated indoor swimming pool, open to the public. The southern lakes and fells are easily reached – Coniston Water, Wastwater, Ennerdale Water and Lake Windermere are all within half an hour’s drive. Visitor attractions such as Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Owl Sanctuary, ’La’al Ratty’ miniature steam railway at Ravenglass or the South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton make wonderful family days out. Black Combe is within walking distance and an energetic ramble to the top (nearly 2,000ft) will reward hikers with the most amazing views of the whole of the southern lakeland fells and over to the Isle of Man on a clear day. For a more peaceful scenario, the pretty garden tempts visitors to relax with a good book. Shop 5 miles, pub 1 mile and restaurant 2 miles.
