"We stayed at this property 4 years ago and it is beautiful."
Very comfortable, very cosy and has everything you need. The welcome hamper is a lovely touch and even includes biscuits for the dogs, whuch they loved! The bungalow is well placed for access to all of Northumberland and with a shop and a pub in the village that's even better. Sadly the weather wasn't great so we were unable to take advantage of the local walks but we will return, hopefully in better weather.
Thank you for your lovely feedback David.It was lovely having you stay with us again. Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"Second time staying in this little gem."
Lynn the owner has thought of everything and the cottage is like home from home. Great location to explore the beautiful coast and countryside of Northumbria. Lots of interesting places on the doorstep. Friendly village local with a lovely pub, village shop and fish and chip van visits every Friday. I would not hesitate in recommending this beautiful holiday let. Thank you for the generous welcome basket and treats for our dog

"Great location to explore the North East!"
Very clean and well presented property with everything you need for a relaxing break. Lovely, big and secure back yard which our dogs enjoyed as well as the frequent walks around the village. The human and canine treats which were left for us on the first day were a nice touch, thank you Lynn. The local pub was only a few minutes walk, had a good menu and great food, ensure you book if you’re going for Sunday lunch as they are very busy. Definitely one to return to in the near future!
Thank you Adam for your lovely feedback, I really appreciate it.so pleased you all enjoyed your holiday.Look forward to seeing you all again.kind Regards Lynn Property Owner

"We have stayed in many dog friendly cottages and this has to be the best."
Lynn left us the most fabulous hamper full of goodies and treats for our pooch. Normally I never book a cottage that does not have a walk in shower but this little gem looked too good to pass. It’s in a quiet peaceful and beautifully kept little village with a dog friendly pub.
Thank you Pamela for your lovely feedback, I really appreciate it. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our cottage. Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"The owner contacted us as the previous guests had left a day early so we we were able to arrive much earlier than anticipated which was appreciated."
Thank you also for the welcome pack. Otherwise we had a pleasant stay and can recommend the local village pub.
"Great location Welcome pack a great bonus on first night"
"What an amazing property and perfect location."

"What a great find."
A lovely secure garden and a genuinely dog friendly owner. Everything designed for easy maintenance. Great pub a few minutes from the door which was friendly and welcoming and the food not bad. Bonus of a mobile chip van in the village one-night per week as well as a mobile pizza van. Local shop selling basics along with freshly made sandwiches and coffee. Cottage handy for all destinations and a bus direct to Moroeth and Newcastle 2 mins from front door. Highly recommended.

"Very well appointed accommodation."
Everything needed to ensure a welcoming stay. The welcome pack is a very nice touch too to get you through the first day without needing to rush out to the shops. Great for dogs too; secure enclosed garden. Good local amenities with shop, pub restaurant, mobile fish & chips and pizza vans all just around the corner. Thank you Lynn for a great stay! Sue & Russ and Millie the Spaniel.
Thank you very much for your feedback, happy you all enjoyed your stay. Lynn Property Owner
"It was a lovely welcoming cottage,clean and warm."
The pub was great for evening meals, substantial and tasty. The cottage was close to hear by attractions, and the dogs loved running on the beaches. I would be happy to stay there again. The basket of bread, biscuits and treats for the dogs were a welcome surprise, many thanks to the owners
Thank you ,Pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and had a good holiday.Lynn Property Owner
"A lovely stay in the quiet village of Long Horsley."
House was nice and cozy and had all we needed. Dog friendly with secure rear courtyard. The Common ( football fields ) was handy for dog exercising. Morpeth not far away and village shop handy selling sandwiches, pasties & nice cakes. Pub close by but we didn’t get chance to go in. A mobile wood burning pizza van visits on a Thursday evening and a Fish & Chip van on Saturday evening. Didn’t try the pizza but fish & chips where very nice. Really nice area for a relaxing holiday.
Thank you for your lovely feedback, so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Kind Regards Lyn Property Owner
"A superb, immaculate and extremely well equipped holiday home."
A very generous welcome pack was provided by Lynn. The location is excellent, a quite village with excellent road networks that enable you to visit the fantastic beaches of the Northumbria coastline. We even caught the train from Morpeth to Edinburgh for a lovely day out. The weather was kind to us which made the walks even more enjoyable. An excellent holiday home in a lovely location, thank you Lynn.
Thank you Colin,so pleased you enjoyed your holiday, thank you for your lovely review.Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"Can't fault any part of the cottage or the area."
The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay and was given a warm welcome with milk and scones for a quick snack on arrival. Very clean and tidy plus having WiFi is a great addition to the stay. The local area is lovely with plenty to see with the shoulder of mutton very welcoming to visitors. If your looking for a relaxing break away then you can't go wrong here.
Thank you Kev for your feedback, I really appreciate it. Pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Lynn Property Owner
"This was our second stay at Reivers Gate which is in a good situation to visit the popular sites of Northumberland."
Lynn had left a more than generous welcome pack for our arrival. Nice enclosed courtyard garden which is perfect if you are taking your dog, and a little sun trap to boot. There is everything in the cottage you will need during your break away. Lovely peaceful street. Would recommend x
Thank you David for your review so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us again, kind regards Lynn Property Owner
"Very clean, comfortable, well furnished and decorated in a good quiet location with an allocated parking space adjacent to the garden gate."
The kitchen is small but well equipped, Lovely welcome hamper. Local pub with a good atmosphere and friendly, very efficient staff serving good food. An excellent village shop nearby. Easy reach of the many N.T. & E.H. properties in the area. (Do go to 'Morwick Dairy Ice Cream' on your way to Warkworth!). We certainly recommend staying at Reivers Gate.
Thank you John for your lovely review, I do appreciate it and yes Morwick Dairy ice cream is delicious. Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"Reivers Retreat is a lovely bungalow in a very quiet area."
The village is great, with a good shop, lots of space to walk dogs, and the fish and chip van visits on a Friday evening - delicious! The rear garden has high walls, which we needed for our dogs, we did have to buy a padlock as there was no way to lock the rear gate and they could open it, however they are big dogs and I’m sure it would be fine for any smaller types. The kitchen is small but has everything you need, more than I have at home! Everywhere was clean, the two sofas were comfortable, and there is lots of storage.
"Lovely cottage in a great position to visit beautiful places In Northumberland."
Excellent welcome pack well equipped kitchen. Lovely local pub serving good food.
Thank you Jacqueline for your feedback, it is much appreciated.Lynn Property Owner
"Very well equipped and quietly situated with ample outdoor seating."
Generous welcome supplies of food. Plenty space in lounge and bedrooms. Good storage. Kitchen very well equipped but not spacious. Shower was a bit unpredictable.
Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it. Lynn Property Owner

Very comfortable and a good location. The welcome pack was definitely a bonus, very thoughtful.
Thank you for your feedback , I really appreciate it. Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"We enjoyed our stay in 10 Reivers Gate, everything you needed & more."
Great enclosed patio garden which was completely secure for our dogs making it possible to leave doors open on a nice day. Ideal central location for visiting all of Northumberland & not too far from the A1. Thanks for the welcome goodies & even treats for the dogs which was a nice touch.
Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it. Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"Thank you Lynn for the goodies you left us much appreciated and a lovely surprise."
The accommodation had everything we needed and access to Netflix was a bonus. The bungalow was clean and extremely comfortable. We found the bungalow easily and in a good location for visiting the area. Places within easy reach were Bamburgh , Chillingham Castles and National Trust Cragside and Seaton Delaval Hall. Hopefully we will visit again.
Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it.we look forward to seeing you again. Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"Found bed a bit hard but that was all everything else was good more than enough equipment."

"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

Kitchen is well stocked with items you would need for your week stay, can’t think of anything you have missed out it’s absolutely fabulous. 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 .
Thank you Yvonne for your lovely review, it is much appreciated. Look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards Lynn Property Owner
"An excellent place to spend a week's break very comfortable and very well equipped."
Lots to see and do in the near by area.
Thank you for your review. I really appreciate it ,Lynn Property Owner
"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.
Thank you for your lovely review Lynn Property Owner
"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!
"This was my 2nd stay at Reivers Retreat (first stayed early Nov 21 and immediately booked again)."
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!
Thank you very much Debbie for your lovely review. So pleased you had a good holiday again. Look forward to seeing you again.Kind regards Lynn Property Owner
"This was one of the nicest holiday cottages we have stayed."
The cottage was perfect and a lovely enclosed garden, which was fully paved. It was a good job with the rain and wind we had while we were there. Can recommend enough, will definitely go back.
Thank you Deanna for your review. Lets hope you have better weather next time.kind regards Lynn Property Owner
"We wanted for nothing, cosy warm bungalow lovely place to return to at the end of a blustery cold Feb day."
The welcome pack was a lovely touch.
Thank you for your review, I really appreciate it.Glad you enjoyed your stay.Kind Regards Lynn Property Owner
"Second visit a well organised place in a good location that makes you feel very welcome would recommend to anyone thinking of going there."

"The retreat is perfect and relaxing, so clean and has everything you need."
The location is great central to the beautiful Northumberland, would definitely recommend.
Thank you for your review; I really appreciate it and for the recommendation.Lynn Property Owner
"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.
Thank you Jonathan you your lovely review, I really appreciate it. I am so pleased you all had a lovely Christmas at Reivers Retreat . Property Owner
"Reivers retreat was a lovely comfortable bungalow, set in a quiet location with it’s own Designated parking space."
The owners had ensured we had a warm welcome by kindly leaving us a lovely welcome pack including such things as scones, jam, clotted cream and fresh fruit. The bungalow was very well equipped, clean and comfortable and the location was perfect for exploring the surrounding areas.
Thank you Hilary,I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Reivers Retreat Property Owner
"We had a wonderful experience."
The cottage is in an ideal position to access Northumberland and close to our family. The bonus was the secure yard for our two little dogs and the parking lit up at the back Thanks to Lynn for a wonderful experience
Pleased you enjoyed your holiday, thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it. Kind regards Lynn Property Owner
"I really enjoyed my stay at Reivers Retreat."
Very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Very generous welcome basket provided. Private and dog safe garden area. Private parking right at the garden gate. Ideal location from which to visit Morpeth, Seahouses, Whitley Bay etc. I would have no hesitation in booking again, and recommending to others.
Thank you for your kind feedback, I do appreciate it, so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards Lynn Property Owner
"Property is located in a quiet village with convenient parking and access."
We appreciated very much the thoughtful gesture of food and fruit on our arrival.
"The cottage is in a perfect place to visit Northumberland this is my 2 time we have stopped there and I will book it again."
Everything you want to have in this lovely cottage very clean,welcome pack very good i would recommend this cottage to anyone,great for my dog,i could go on forever just one word to say Great.
"Had a lovely holiday at Reivers Gate."
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. We would definitely recommend Reivers Gate for a lovely comfortable getaway.
"Longhorsley and this property is ideal as a base for exploring the Northumberland coast."
Very clean and friendly property,would recommend it to anyone.
"Gorgeous bungalow, exactly as described, located in a very friendly village, ideal location to access and explore Northumbria."
Thank you for your review it is much appreciated. Kind regards Lynn Property Owner
"The cottage was exceptionally clean and well equipped."
The welcome pack was a lovely touch especially the fresh fruit. We lost our dog in April and we had chosen this cottage with him in mind, he would have loved it. Enclosed garden with furniture was a real sun trap. Would definitely book again.
"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.
"Absolutely wonderful property, so clean and comfortable."
Had all we needed and more and in a fabulous location. Couldn’t fault it, five stars.
"Accommodation used as a base to explore this beautiful part of the North East."
Welcome pack provided was excellent, thank you so much. Accommodation had all we required and more. Thank you so much
"An excellent holiday home from home."
Well furnished and fully equipped. Excellent location, beautiful beaches and lots of interesting places to visit. Looking forward to returning next year.
"Enjoyed our stay."
Accommodation was excellent very clean. Welcome pack was a nice touch very much appreciated. The enclosed garden was perfect for our 15 month dog and the jar of treats was nice and he really enjoyed them. It was home from home. Thank you.
"The house was exceptionally well cleaned and lots of little extras provided, a lovely welcome pack including dog treats and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend."
"A lovely bungalow."
Very clean throughout with everything you’d ever need. Some lovely touches with the welcome pack on arrival and milk in the fridge. Even some treats for the dog! Set in peaceful surroundings with a great village green, which our football and cricket mad son enjoyed most evenings playing until the sun went down! The village shop is a must for freshly made sandwiches and cakes etc and the couple who run it are lovely! The local pub is very welcoming and just a few minutes drive down the road is another pub which has an extensive menu and very friendly staff. Our first visit to Northumberland and certainly will not be our last! Loved the countryside and it’s historic castles.
"The bungalow has all amenities and a local pub in walking distance and is dog friendly too."
Great welcome hamper including a bowl of fruit was much appreciated there was even a tv in both bedrooms. Unfortunately for us the weather was not perfect but we still managed to exploring a lot of the beautiful Northumbrian countryside. Small village shop close by with loads to chose from. Pizza van comes on a Thursday (details on board near shop also a fish and chip van on a Friday information on notice board next to shop. All in all we had a lovely stay. Also which I found was a good idea as soon as the bungalow is ready you get a text.
"The cottage was absolutely spotlessly clean."
Very well decorated and colourful. Also the welcome pack was superb. We could not fault anything and would highly recommend this property set in a lovely village.
"This cottage was spotlessly clean, the owners had thought of everything you could possibly need and more!"
There was a lovely welcome basket and the weather was perfect for exploring the beautiful Northumbrian countryside.
"Lovely bungalow , close to many places to explore Northumberland countryside and coastal walks."
The house has all amenities and a local pub in walking distance where we had a lovely Sunday lunch at the pub is dog friendly too. Great welcome hamper was much appreciated! My daughter loved the great selection of board games and even a tv in both rooms.
"The bungalow was so homely, spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming."
The welcome pack left by the owners was just lovely. Couldn't fault anything. Will certainly try and return next year.
"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.
"A lovely stay in a spotless and well thought property felt more like a home than a holiday let, communication was excellent and the basket was a lovely surprise would recommend without a doubt."
"Rivers retreat, exceeded our expectations, the welcome hamper was a real surprise and made us feel very welcome."
Situated in a lovely village location not far from the A1, so well situated to explore the area. The village pub offers good food at a reasonable price, the village shop was well stocked and staff very friendly. Everything in the accommodation was of good quality and was extremley clean and comfortable, kitchen was well equipped. Was nice to have a choice of a bath or shower after a days walking. Will definately be booking To return
"A gorgeous bungalow, fabulous welcome pack, clean and tidy with all mod cons."
Was able to settle in quickly and a good base for all famous attractions. The the only issue was the lack of grass in the back garden but only because our dog is used to doing her business on grass or stones. Otherwise the best holiday we have had and even the weather was great.
This accommodation is a very well equipped bungalow. The owners have thought of everything including a very nice welcome pack. The location is excellent for national trust and English heritage properties and for exploring the Northumberland coast. I would highly recommend this property.
"Would certainly recommend this bungalow,ideal position in a lovely village."
Very clean,everything provided& an excellent welcome basket! Would revisit in the future.
"The Best. Clean, comfortable accommodation with a superb welcome pack."
Situated in a small village with friendly local pub 100 yards away. Dog walk nearby (200 yards) with superb beaches a 20 minute drive away. Excellent location for visiting and sightseeing in the area. The owner's communication was very good. Cannot praise this experience highly enough.
"Great location and made to feel very welcome by Lynn who had thought of everything."
A lovely stress free experience, thank you.
"Bungalow was great."
Local pub very close aswell as the local shop. Great welcome pack. Garden area a great sun trap.
"Reivers Gate has everything you need for a perfect holiday; the property is very well equipped and it is packed with thoughtful extras that make it a very special holiday home."
The owner Lynn has thought of everything, even a sewing kit for those little emergencies. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise, full of goodies, wine, scones, bread, jam and marmalade, milk, butter and cream in the fridge. I can highly recommend this little Gem and can't wait to go back.
"Would highly recommend this cottage, we arrived to a lovely welcome pack for ourselves and the dog."
the accommodation is beautifully presented and we felt quite at home. Lovely area to visit and near to the coast. would have no hesitation to stay here again if in the area
"Wonderful cottage amazing welcome pack even the dogs were catered for including ..."
Wonderful cottage amazing welcome pack even the dogs were catered for including blankets ,throws and towels, felt at home as soon as we arrived, ideal location for visiting the area , very helpful owner every facility we needed, would highly recommend, we will visit again
"The cottage is perfectly located for visiting the coastal areas and the Cheviots."
It is also close to major road links to go up north or travel down. The villagers were very friendly and the village shop covered most daily necessities. The owners couldn’t have made us feel more welcome. Excellent welcome pack as well as a bowl of fruit and milk and butter in the fridge for our arrival. The cottage had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. We had a much needed and welcoming break and would definitely return to this lovely cottage.
"We had a great time exploring the area, the cottage was warm and welcoming to return to after our day trips."
Fantastic welcome pack including dog treats the added bonus was being able to take three dogs. I would recommend the Northumberland arms and The Jolly Fisherman (Craster) both serve amazing food.
"A lovely break in our favourite county."
The cottage was in a pleasant, quiet location on the edge of the village. Warm and cosy , the “welcome pack” was generous and contributed to a really relaxing week away.
"The bungalow is well situated for access to almost anywhere in Northumberland with the A697 going through the village and very close to the A1."
It is a lovely, cosy, wonderfully equipped property, the best we have ever stayed in as the owner has thought of everything. Always warm with comfortable beds and sofas, quality towels and linens. Longhorsley is a pretty village with a shop and a pub. The locals are very friendly and the pub food is extremely tasty. It is dog friendly in the bar and we enjoyed two excellent evening visits. We visit Northumberland often and most definitely will return to Reivers Retreat.
