  • "I can honestly say that this is amongst the best holiday cottages I’ve stayed at."

    The kitchen has everything you could need. So much attention to making your stay enjoyable has been put in. The board games etc are a great addition. The location is ideal for exploring the beautiful coast and the national park. Thank you so much.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay, Lynn Property Owner

Your welcome items were well received by all plus the dogs loved the biscuits, thank you so much. Perfect garden for the dogs and a lovely sun trap . It was the best birthday holiday I’ve had. We will definitely be back .

  • "We are a family of 4, with twin 6 yr olds, and this bungalow was absolutely ideal and fantastic value for money."

    The boys loved the bunk beds and having a TV in the bedroom! There is a good selection of books, games and DVDs. It was clean, beds were comfortable, plenty of storage for clothes and coats. Loved the photographs of various locations in the county. Lynn had provided a welcome pack and fresh fruit in the fruit bowl, which was a lovely touch. It was a cold week so we enjoyed coming back to the cosy warmth of the place. We had a small issue with the shower but Lynn sorted it out the same day so was not a problem at all. We’ve been to Northumberland several times and felt this location was one of the best, within easy reach of the coast and Hadrian’s Wall. Another bonus is the lovely pub just around the corner. We cooked in the cottage most evenings, the kitchen is small but very well equipped, the only thing we missed having was a dishwasher but that’s only because we are so used to having one. Thank you Lynn for a lovely week, we wouldn’t hesitate to return.

  • "Reivers Gate is my favourite place to stay when I travel from Sussex to visit Northumberland."

    The owners have worked hard to achieve a very high standard and it is equipped with everything you need to make your holiday perfect in every sense of the word. A welcome basket in the kitchen is a wonderful treat after a long journey; fresh bread, milk, scones with clotted cream and jam! I've stayed here several times now and it's my No 1 holiday home! When you find the perfect holiday home, there's no need to look any further!

    Just about to book for a third time. Perfect location to enjoy days out to Morpeth, Seahouses and Tynemouth Village (my favourites). All on one level, comfortable, well furnished and fully equipped home from home, with a TV in each room, and great Wi-fi. Patio doors open onto a fully enclosed, dog safe garden (which is a sun trap). Private parking space right at the garden gate. What more could you ask for!

  • "We stayed over the Christmas period and had a wonderfully relaxing time at this property."

    The communication from Lynn was great, right from the initial booking right through to us checking out, we were also offered a slightly earlier check in too which was a great bonus. When we arrived we noticed some nice little touches like wrapped Christmas treats for us and the doggies. The property was perfect for us, there’s a secure garden for the dogs, everything we needed from the kitchen, an open plan living and dining area, master bedroom was a good size with loads of storage space, our 4 year old loved his bedroom, and the bathroom was of great standard too. A few things that impressed us was having a tv in both bedrooms, great WiFi (those two are very important when you have children), everything was clean, there were some board games and DVD’s for a bit of entertainment and little touches like these just added to the positive experience. My only confusion with this property is why it’s listed on Sykes as 3 ticks! Overall I would highly recommend this property for couples, families and dog owners. Thanks again Lynn for a wonderful stay at your property.

    The bungalow is well equipped, Lynn has pre-empted everything you might need whilst you are away on holiday. Reivers Gate is situated in a lovely village location, which is very handy for all the tourist sights you will probably visit whilst you are in Northumberland. The welcome pack was gratefully received. There is also a courtyard garden, which is secure if you are brining your dog with you and there is parking right at the back of the property.

  • "A very well equipped bungalow that had everything we needed, even dog bowls, treats and towels for the dog."

    A welcome pack of bread, scones, clotted cream, jam, margarine, fruit and wine was a lovely touch too. The local shop was just around the corner and just up the lane from there was a walk that we did every morning with the dog, before heading out and about for the day. It was ideally situated for the surrounding area and we travelled to lots of different places like Druridge Bay, Dunstanburgh Castle, Hadrian's wall, Carlisle Park in Morpeth, Rothbury, Warkworth Castle and Whitley Bay all lovely places and dog friendly too. Lynne messaged a couple of times with updates and to apologise when the bungalow wasn't quite ready for our arrival time as she'd had to give some bits a touch up of paint, but this wasn't an issue for us but it was nice to be kept informed. I would definitely recommend this property and its only because I like to travel to different areas otherwise I'd definitely stay here again.

The village shop is a must for freshly made sandwiches and cakes etc and the couple who run it are lovely!

Our first visit to Northumberland and certainly will not be our last! Loved the countryside and it’s historic castles.

  • "Loved this bungalow."

    It was cosy and the bed and settees were comfy. In spite of it's size it was really well-equipped and everything well thought out. The welcome hamper was delicious . The house was spotless and clean. A true credit to the owners. The kitchen is quite small but well-designed. However, I never really mastered the new electric hob efficiently with numerous buttons to press to turn on and set temperatures. Just a few minutes walk away, however, is a lovely shop selling homemade food and cakes. On Thursdays a pizza van appeared and Friday a Fish and Chip van so we had plenty of options for food. A pub is also close by that serves food. For the dogs we were pleasantly surprised to have been left treats. Bowls, throws and poo bags were also provided which makes you feel like your dogs are truly welcomed. The garden was paved and had seating a swing and was very nice. It was fully enclosed but we weren't sure if the little terrier could squeeze through the gate bars so we used the box for glass recycling outside the kitchen door to block it as a precaution. For dog walks you are a few minutes from a green and a walk through allotments. About 5 minutes away is Longhorsley common and there are networks of paths extending onwards. Further afield (20 mins) is Rothbury a lovely small market town with lots of walks and about 30 mins + are the beaches at Alnmouth, Amble, Seahouses etc. We have passed through Longhorsley many times driving up to Scotland, blink and you will miss it but having stayed at Reivers Retreat it is certainly a place I would recommend.
