“Tired”
Reviewed July 23, 2010

Beautiful locality but cottage furnishings tired - chairs saggy and sofa bed very lumpy.
concerned about fire danger - only one exit door - windows too narrow for escape and some nailed shut.
Pool too small for swimming comfortably
Restaurant closed

We were quite excited about our visit to Akeld Manor but quite disappointed with the reality. The leisure facilities were a particular disappointment - the restaiurant was closed and the pool was only available between 9am and 8pm though the website claimed that it was available from 8am to 10pm. The cottage was very pleasant and extremely clean but we felt that the kitchen in particular was in need of some updating. The 4 star luxury reviews may have applied when the cottages were first opened but we would doubt that they would still apply. The location is excellent and we would definitely go back to Northumberland but not to Akeld Manor. We feel we would be able to get a much better deal elsewhere.

Stayed in one of the cottages, which was nice, unfortunately wasnt warm enough despite the heating being on full, Akeld if 4 miles from Wooler, which has very little in it. Plenty to do, if you drive a bit further out.
No much to do at Akeld, the pool is cold, the sauna, is ok, no steam room, jacuzzi is intregated into pool and is also cold.

Stayed here for a long weekend in a 1 bed cottage. Lovey cottage, in a quiet location - great location for touring the sights of Northumberland, but a car is defiantely required. The cottage had everything we could want - it was well stocked with pots and pans etc, and had enough space for 2 people. Furnishing swere of good qulaity, however starting to look a little tired - however the cottage was very clean.

Overall we thought the situation was good in a peaceful spot. They have a range of cottages of different sizes and shapes to good to check with the resort as to your particular requirements before booking. The overall location was quiet but could imagine it would get busy in the school holidays. Pool was functional, good for small children but not for adult swimmers

Overall would recommend

Wonderful cottages which can be booked either on a timeshare basis or through English country cottage websites or brochures. They were old farm buildings which have recently been redocorated to a very high standard. Ours had two bedrooms, large lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Leisure facilites had a very clean pool of good length (used it every morning) sauna and a gym. There was also a snooker table, table tennis, lending library and DVD's. Cottages right on the edge of National Park so plenty of walks without having to travel too far. Also enjoyed trips to Berwick on Tweed and Lindisfarne (watch the tides). Others staying there were having trips to Edinburgh and into the Scottish borders.
Good restaurant on site with extremely friendly owners. We have been to many timeshare places but felt this was definitely one of the best as everything clean and tidy and staff so friendly and helpful. Perhaps it helped that we visited outwith school holidays which meant it was quiet but each buiding seemed to be completely soundproof.

  • Liked — peace and quiet
