Just returned from a stunning half-term break in Northumberland staying at Akeld Manor. Location and countryside wonderful with lots to do for all the family. Akeld Manor itself is quiet and perfectly placed to explore the area.
The cottage we stayed in was OK - the fittings and furniture were tired and old fashioned. The shower was only a dribble and cooking equipment basic (bring your own sharp knife and chopping board). The swimming pool was great - the kids loved it, as well as the table tennis and pool table.
The big disappointment was the fact we had mice in the cottage. Most evenings they came out, freely visible running across the floor and by morning there were mouse droppings everywhere. Not a great start to the day having to clean mouse pooh off the kitchen worksurfaces and floor! Although the resort has pest control the management wasn't helpful about the mouse problem and it put a big downer on the holiday - won't be going back.
