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

A Comfy,Cosy Cottage.
We were in need of a holiday after a very hectic year. This cottage was just the place.It is adjacent to a working farm, but we never heard a thing,it was so quiet. The cottage is well-equipped and the beds were so comfortable that we slept in some mornings. Hexham is about 6 miles down the road, you can get the train from there to Newcastle which is a beautiful and very friendly city. The cottage was an ideal base from which to go out and about. Gordon, the owner is very approachable and pleasant. I would have no hesitation in recommending a holiday here.

We really liked Moorgair Cottage and its very helpful owner Gordon. The cottage was very nice and comfortable and more spacious than the photos suggested. It was in a lovely and quiet position in the middle of the countryside but in easy distance from Slayley (nice pub), Hexham (bustling little town with an interesting Priory) and Corbridge (where we had our best meals of the week in Ilpiccolo). Also great walking country around Hadrian's Wall. Very much recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moorgair. The cottage was just as described. There were only 2 of us but I could see that it would definitely be a suitable place for a family. The cottage was very clean and well appointed with good quality furnishings. Nice comfy beds. There were many little extras - tourist info, books & games, videos. Even milk & shortbread waiting for us on arrival. Moorgair is ideally situated. We were visiting from Canada and used the cottage as our base for exploring the Hexham area and the Holy Island coastline. It was a pleasure to meet Gordon and enjoyed talking with him. Of course the Alpacas were an added bonus!

Most excellent
We had a lovely week in this beautiful cosy comfy cottage with wonderful views, the furniture and contents are to a high standard. Gordon is a friendly accommodating host, who tries to make sure everything is as you need it. Meeting his Alpacas was a delight? Sitting in the cosy lounge with the log burner going while watching a DVD was a cosy delight indeed. The local village shop and pub are also great, both of which are community owned. The friendly community feel was wonderful. We had a relaxing peaceful week and are eager to return.
