Perfect New Year break
In summary: the cottage is clean, warm and well-equipped. The owner is helpful and lovely without being intrusive. The village shop sells great bread, wine and beer. We had a fabulous time, despite some challenging weather. Hexham, Corbridge and Hadrian's Wall are close by, providing great walks both in town and country. Each day we came back at sunset and lit the fire (very easily which is not usual for us - and many thanks for the free logs and kindling), then opened a bottle and cooked dinner. Everything was so easy. We appreciated the care taken to make us happy. There was even bird food for us to put out on the feeder opposite the dining table window! There were none of the irritations that sometimes occur in holiday cottages such as a dirty and scratched frying pan, or no bin bags, or no washing up liquid, or not enough wine glasses. Small things, but when owners take care of them they help make the transition from home to holiday a smooth one.

Brilliant as always
Cosy cottage with everything you could want, this was our 4th stay! Gordon thinks of everything, it is a real home from home.

The best self catering we've been to? Quite probably
Moorgair is the cosiest, cleanest and best equipped holiday cottage we've been to, and we've been to quite a few over the years. It is equipped with good quality appliances, the finish of the decor is immaculate and is spotlessly clean (okay, I admit it. I did run my finger across the top of the door frame- no dust at all) - there has been a lot of attention to detail to get this place spot-on. Gordon, the owner is friendly and approachable and lives next door, so is easily on hand should there be a problem, but on the other hand he is in no way obtrusive. The cottage is on a quiet country lane, but the local attractions are within easy reach. Even on the one day of our visit when the weather was just too dismal to venture out, we were quite comfortable and content to just sit and chat; even though there is an excellent range of books, games and dvds to explore. All in all we had a wonderful week at Moorgair - thank you Gordon (and Dory, Bentley and the alpacas)

Perfect Cosy Cottage!
Set in a perfect, quiet location, Moorgair is a really lovely cottage. It has everything you need, without a lot of clutter, and is extremely cosy and comfortable. A lot of thought has gone in to making this a great place to stay, whether you are couples, or a family with all the extras you might need. It is incredibly clean - and looks like it's just come on the holiday market! The host, Gordon, was so helpful and nice to communicate with, from the initial enquiry and booking, and definately whilst we were there. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Fabulous Place
Such a great spot, we loved Northumberland and Moorgair was a great home base while explored all the beautiful spots close by.
