“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a week with our 2 children. The cottage was perfect for our needs, with an enormous garden with plenty of room for kicking a ball around and even a swing.

The cottage was a little more rustic than I was expecting but very charming and comfortable. Our favourite room was the lounge / dining room which had an open fire, comfortable lounges and a big antique dining table.

The kitchen was small but adequate, with an eclectic collection of cooking utensils. Nearest village (Bellingham) was about 2-3km away and had all the necessary shops for supplies.

The only thing I would say is that the stairs are very steep and the shower is an over-bath arrangement, so I would not recommend Riever's Rest for elderly guests. Otherwise, though, we very much enjoyed our stay and I would happily come again.

“Beautiful Cottage in a Quiet Rural Setting”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We recently stayed at Reiver's Rest, and found it to be the perfect place to explore the area. The owners could not have been more friendly and accommodating, The property was clean and comfortable - the only hard thing was getting out of bed each morning! We visitied Hadrian's Wall, the coast, and the border abbeys in nearby Scotland. The small villages in the area were all a delight- good restaurants and pubs. We recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing and comfortable home-away-from -home. Thank you William and Anna for making our stay in Northumberland so special.

“Very Comfortable Quality Cottage, Pets Welcome”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Its a great cottage , 3 large bedrooms with comfortable beds, lots of hot water and power shower, log fire, internet.
Pets are welcome downstairs but gardens out side are not fenced so if you pet wanders this will be an issue.
Stairs are steep and could be a risk for small children, elderly and infirm

“Super location / peaceful / everything you need”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This cottage is super - in a beautiful rural location with woodland walks and fields of sheep on the door step. Kielder with all of its facilities is close and is the village of Bellignham (small supermarket, petrol, pubs, etc). It is very peaceful, with the only disturbance being the noise of the guinea fowl. The cottage itself is comfortable, with great bedrooms. The kitchen and bathroom are functional though I could imagine with a full house they could be a bit cramped. It is dog friendly - and ours enjoyed his stay as well! Do note no mobile phone signal, but there is wi-fi and a landline for incoming emergency calls.

“Characterful house in a beautiful part of the country.”
Reviewed April 17, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed here with friends over New Year and it was a great place for cosy evenings in front of the fire, a celebration meal and interesting places to visit. It's a shame there is only one bathroom. It would be difficult if you were 6 adults. The standard of furnishing is excellent. The beds and bedding super comfortable. We walked at Kielder Water and to the waterfall at Bellingham. Lots more to do than we had time for.

“Lovely week”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our week at Reivers Rest has been a delight. The house is part of the converted stables of Hesleyside Hall and a lovely quiet location. In fact the only noise to be heard is from the guinea fowl outside in the grounds.

The house is clean, comfortable and well furnished. We had a tour of Hesleyside Hall with the owners William and Anna Charlton, for a small fee. The tour is fascinating and lovely to see the evidence of a family home as well as an historic property which has been in the same family since 1343.

Reivers Rest is in a beautiful location, close to Bellingham, Kielder and Hadrians Wall. A favourite walk was Hareshaw Linn in Bellingham.

Recommended highly for families and pet owners.
