Perfect escape to the country - with the feel good factor!
This was our 2nd visit and a 3rd is planned to this idyllic spot. This must be testimony to our appreciation of all that the cottage offers:- 5*+ accommodation, in a unique and peaceful location. All professionally organised by the owner/manager, Gordon, who has always been extremely considerate and helpful. This time we reacquainted ourselves with the (nearby) charming Hollybush Nursery/cafe and its neighbouring reclamation yard! Delightful little things that can make all the difference while on holiday. Within easy access there are stunning NT properties and heritage sites as well as scenic coast and countryside. The local village of Slaley, boasts (rightly in our view) a magnificent Community owned pub (The Rose and Crown) where you are made to feel so welcome. This is one of the best rural locations which, in our view, allows you to ?escape to the country? and actually feel the benefits.

Wonderful cosy cottage
This is a fantastic cottage. It's a little off the beaten track - with all the advantages that brings - dark skies, walking from the front door, quiet location. We went in April - so breakfasted to the sight of lambs playing in the field outside the window. Just lovely! Decor is really good. It's neat tidy and extremely well presented. As holiday lets go, it's up there as one of the best we've ever stayed in. It's well heated and cosy - we turned the thermostat down while we were there despite visiting during a cold snap. Gordon, the owner, farms from next door and is really welcoming and helpful. It's well located for pretty Corbridge and Hexham, and within easy striking range of the wall and associated sites. Just down the road is the Rose and Crown Slaley, community pub with cracking food and excellent beer. Ten out of ten from us, would absolutely recommend a stay!

Fantastic location, cottage and host
We visited the cottage for a week with our 2 kids. Gordon was a total gentleman, very very helpful, friendly and polite. The cottage had everything we needed and worked very well for us, The location was fantastic, out of the way enough to feel very quite and away from things, but close enough for meals/drinks out etc as well as being within easy reach of Hadrian's Wall, Beamish, the beach etc. We would highly recommend it and may well be returning! Thanks Gordon

Amazing Cottage

Home from home
Moorgair is a little gem in the Beautiful Northumberland countryside. So quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The cottage is clean and very well presented, everything you need was close at hand and Gordon?s attention to detail is second to none. Everything you need is there from the moment you walk in, little things like biscuits and milk, tea coffee and sugar, toilet rolls and washing up liquid, that in other places we?ve had to provide we?re all taken care of. Wish we could?ve stayed longer this time but will definitely go back, it was a shame it was booked for Christmas this year or we would?ve snapped up the chance to spend our festive season there. Well done Gordon a ?big thumbs up? to you
