The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. Great care had been taken to follow the Covid guidelines.
The owner lives next door and is extremely helpful , but as others have said - not intrusive.
We are frequent visitors to Northumberland and usually stay near the coast. However the scenery close to the farm is outstanding and a drive up to Allenheads is highly recommended. The cottage is also close to Hexham and Corbridge for shopping and cafes. Our grandchildren enjoyed the great play park at the Derwent Reservoir visitor centre.
We also saw red squirrels - a first for us.
A great week and a great find.
Moorgair is a lovely spot for a family holiday to discover Hexham and surrounding areas. The accommodation is great for a family. It is quiet and tranquil. Lots of local places to see and visit. We highly recommend Moorgair for your holiday booking.
My partner and I had a wonderful week based here a 15 minutes drive from Hexham. Glorious setting adjacent to a farm. Lots of wildlife to see including bats and hares. The cottage was very clean on arrival and the owner provided additional sanitisers. The cottage is very well equipped and has a good sized bathroom with a bath/shower. The kitchen area is small but well laid out. I think this place is ideal for two adults plus two children. Would be a little cramped for more than two adults. You can walk to the local pub in 20 minutes and it has a restaurant attached. Close to enough attractions to make it an ideal base for exploring This part of Northumbria.
Great host who was helpful but not intrusive. We hope to return in the future.
Just returned from a week's stay at Moorgair Cottage. It was exactly what we needed. It is in a peaceful and very pretty spot but within easy driving distance to Hexham and other nearby attractions (Corbridge Roman remains and Dilston Physic garden both open and definitely worth a visit). We just wanted somewhere to relax and to enjoy some walks and little trips out. This place was perfect. Despite Covid19, the cottage is very well equipped and had everything we needed, (the kitchen is tiny but I managed to cook a roast dinner in it no problem!). The cottage was also spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The owner, Gordon, and his Partner Catherine were lovely - very helpful and even offered the opportunity to meet the resident alpacas on our last day which was a real treat. We also enjoyed a day out to High Force waterfall (actually the Low Force waterfall that you see on the walk to High Force is prettier). Overall, a really enjoyable and relaxing week and excellent value for money.
Picture this. Trapped at home for months on end, at the mercy of circumstance. Having no luck securing a property anywhere and having given up hope. Then, a well timed phone call from Gordon saves the day. Needless to say, we as a family had a terrific time at Moorgair cottage. A tranquil abode in a serene and dramatic landscape. A happy place in a very unique part of England, with its own distinct identity. I think it's fair to say we will return.
