Willian and ann are very friendly people. The stay at reiver's rest was very pleasent, We where lso offered a guided tour around and inside the house. Magnificent place.
I can reccomend a stay at Reiver's rest. It is far away from noise, close to the private forest, close to keilder forest, close to Scotland, Land of Mary Queen of Scots.
Go and see for yourself.

I can highly recommend Hesleyside Hall's Stable Block cottage. We stayed for a week and were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation and the friendliness of the Charlton family. The bedrooms had wonderfully comfortable beds and the decor was 'posh' country style, the lounge was windfall with comfy sofas and beautiful antique furniture including a huge dining table and the kitchen was small but everything you need is provided. In my opinion the only thing missing was a second toilet/bathroom - sleeping 6 this would have made mornings slightly slicker. Overall highly recommended.

Reiver's Rest is ideal for those looking for peace and quiet, with wildlife arriving on your doorstep at any given moment. The accommodation and contents are of a very high standard, with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I would love to return to this accommodation in the winter, as being on the edge of Keilder National Park the dark skies will be wonderful. Many thanks to William and anna for sharing part of their home and also to Susan the housekeeper. I could run out of superlatives if I carry on! One other note - a car is a must as there are so many areas of interest in the vicinity.
