The Reiver's Retreat Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Reiver's Retreat is a neatly presented ground floor apartment in a conversion of a former draper's shop, on the main street in the heart of the popular little town of Haltwhistle. The apartment sleeps two in a double bedroom. There is also a shower room, kitchen and sitting room with dining area. The apartment retains character features including the very grand windows once afforded to the draper's shop, providing a great view of the passing hustle and bustle of this popular market town. Outside is off road parking making The Reaver's Retreat an ideal touring base.

The small market town of Haltwhistle is a vibrant place, offering a wide range of shops and other amenities. Home to The Black Bull – a proper, old fashioned pub, serving quality food and real ale – the village is a welcoming place to return to following a day of walking, pony trekking or cycling. With the Pennine Way and other great cycle routes and Bridleways running nearby, it's easy to enjoy this stunning scenery, which boasts dramatic castles, surging rivers and beautiful forests. Those interested in the country's history are sure to enjoy a visit to one of the best preserved stretches of Hadrian's Wall, only a mile north of the village, and with an ongoing dig on the site of Vindolanda, it's easy to get in touch with the nation's past. If history isn't your cup of tea, then there is a regular train and bus service in to Newcastle and Carlisle, meaning that you can leave your car behind and enjoy the nightlife the big cities have to offer.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

The accommodation was really comfortable, a huge squashy leather settee and a leather rocker that we seriously wanted to bring home with us. The bed was comfortable too and the shower efficient. We cooked in every evening bar one and the kitchen had everything we needed. Haltwhistle itself is a charming little market town and we quickly found great walks for to go on with our dog.

Lovely welcome package. Ideally situated near Hadrians wall, walks and countryside. Even visited Gretna Green one day, Whitley Bay another and High Force/Barnard Castle on the way home. Ample shops, public houses and takeaways for food, drink and supplies.
September 2012
Very convenient to everything. Hadrian's Wall bus stops next door. Supermarket and pharmacy very close. Train station walking distance. Very spacious interior, kitchen is well,equipped for basic cooking. Hosts were kind and attentive, lived just down the street, a phone call away.

This is one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in, Ian and Stella (owners) was so helpfull and the appartment was so clean and comfortable, the location was very good with all the local sevices so close by including a sainsburys a 2 minuet walk away. And of course one of the best bit's of Hadrians wall 2 miles away, we would certainly stay here again

Couldn't believe how great the apartment was for the price. Spacious, light, warm, beautifully furnished and comfortable. Owners very welcoming and helpful, everything on doorstep including lovely pubs. Perfect place to stay to do Hadrians Wall.
August 2014
Great accommodation in a lovely village. Good base for Hadrian's wall and surrounding attractions. Village has plenty of little shops for supplies etc.
September 2014
On arrival we were welcomed with a touching gift and thought the pictures didn't do the appartment Justice. On our first night we heard banging at the front door, upon opening it we discovered a drunk urinating and vomiting up the door and on the doorstep, not the greatest start. We gave the place the benefit of the doubt, but the final straw was a young couple having sex outside the bedroom window, while we were trying to sleep. Having stayed in Haltwhistle before I thought it would be an ideal place as it looked so nice, now I know why it looks nice the cons out way the pros sorry, I wasted a full weeks money on this cottage as we left early almost a week early and booked into a B&B in the end which is a disappointment as we enjoy our cottage breaks but this wasn't a break In short I wouldn't go back or recommend this place

Excellent apartment, very clean and very well decorated. One of the best property's we have stayed in and would recommend it. The location was first class both for local services and Hadrian's Wall.

This is a great place to stay for visiting Hadrian's Wall country and further afield in Northumberland. There is a large living/dining room and all the amenities and furnishings are of a high standard. All the shops you need are close by, including a supermarket only a short walk away. We loved the location and the accommodation.
February 2015
I can't recommend this little place enough. It's in a great spot in the middle of the town. A couple of good pubs close by, and a sainsburys within 2 mins walk. The owners very kindly left a bottle of wine and some chocolate which was a very nice touch. The apartment was immaculate and had everything needed for a short or long stay. We hope to return. ( ps there is a observatory close by that we didn't know about so it would be worthwhile booking that in advance as we couldn't get tickets when we turned up).

Comfortable and warm accommodation. Friendly and helpful hosts. Opposite excellent real ale pub. Central location in small town, friendly locals. Good local walks.
August 2013
This is a lovely place for a couple to stay. It makes a great base for a touring holiday in Northumberland. In walking distant of Hadrian's Wall. The inside is done to a very high standard and is comfortable. There's plenty of shops, cafes and pubs in the village. The only downside is that it's on a main road but that didn't detract from our enjoyment of our holiday in any way.

Stayed here for a week in June. The apartment is centrally located in Haltwhistle with eating establishments, pubs and shops nearby. The flat is beautifully furnished and really comfortable with every possible amenity you could require. Really loved the sofa with the electrically operated footrest, great for relaxing after a long day out. The information provided by the owners on the locality is excellent. They have even returned, at no cost to ourselves, something that my wife left behind. Highly recommended for comfort and location
