“Restful, rustic and absolutely beautiful location”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our week in this cottage was fantastic. Close to walks in the Cheviot Hills, to castles on the coast and to lovely driving on the country roads, this was a favourite. We arrived to find a welcome pack in the fridge and the heating was on, so coming in from the cold to this little cottage with food and wine provided was just magic!
We had a night at The Red Lion at Milfield Village and found the food was superior to any pub food we have eaten.
This cottage and this area thoroughly recommended.

“Our third visit, and as good as ever”

We love this cottage - the location is perfect for exploring the beautiful countryside around Wooler and is within easy travelling distance of the glorious Northumberland coastline. The cottage itself is warm and comfortable and copes with our family needs well. The dogs love the secure garden, and it is so nice to be able to let them run around and run off excess energy whilst looking at the wonderful views. The welcome pack of food makes breakfast on the first day here a very easy meal, and having central heating for our autumn stay is a real boon. Our daughter spends most of her holiday riding at the owner's stables 'Kimmerston'.

“Incredible value for money, nestled in the Cheviot foothills.”

This was our first trip to Northumberland, and after an extensive search for self-catering holiday cottages, we settled upon Akeld Cottage, and are very glad we did.

It is located in the very scenic foothills of the Cheviots, which are ideal for walking into the stunning Northumberland National Park - which is full of wild- and bird-life. The cottage is a short drive from Wooler, where there is a very convenient Co-op store. It also makes for a perfect base to see some of the main Northumberland sites - Lindisfarne and the Farne Islands are within easy driving distance, and Edinburgh is just over 50 miles away.

The cottage itself is well proportioned, well furnished and stocked, comfortable and unpretentious. The decor and furnishings are not the height of luxury, but they suit the property well, and are just what you need for a comfortable base. The garden is very well maintained and has a wonderful area for eating outside. It is part of a small complex of cottages, and the neighbours were all very friendly, and it was very quiet and peaceful.

There is a great master bedroom with double bed, a twin room, and a room with a bunk bed, all of which slept three adults comfortably. There is only one bathroom and the shower is not that powerful, but it does the job, and with a bit of negotiation it is easy enough for a family to work out the morning shower run!

Lastly, we were greeted with a generous welcome pack, and also given an amazing deal at the owner's horse riding centre, which is also highly recommended (Kimmerston Horse Riding Centre).

We could not have asked for more from our holiday rental, and this was excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
