This cottage was really homely, comfortable and set in a wonderful location. All you needed was provided and the open fire was particularly cosy on an autumn evening.
Mrs Taylor

Reiver's Rest gave us a charming, spacious, tranquil base for our stay in Northumberland. It had an ambience of comfort, heritage, and timeless solidity, and provided a perfect home-from-home for us.
Mr Sedgwick

The property was in a beautiful, remote location but near enough to a village to get supplies easily. The lounge/dining room was particularly charming, and our children loved the open fire (even in August!). The grounds are enormous and perfect for children to kick a ball, have a swing or go exploring. We really enjoyed our tour of the manor house which we had on our last day.
Dr Darbar

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.

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.
