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

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)

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!

This was the 3rd time we’d stayed in Gordon’s gorgeous cottage, and yet again it didn’t disappoint. A clean, cosy home from home, Gordon keeps it pristine. It’s a perfect base to relax and recharge and forget about life for a while. Hexham is a beautiful place to walk, eat and shop, even as we did take part in the Tyne Green parkrun! Slaley community pub is a real gem too and just a brisk walk or short drive away, Sunday lunch is a must and a great way to start your holiday at Moorgair. Already booked up for stay number 4.

I can only reiterate what has gone before - fantastically presented cottage in a stunning location. Gordon and Catherine are attentive without being overbearing and will help out in any way they can - just knock and they will be there! This was our second stay and (needless to say) it will not be our last. In fact, we have already booked next year!

My friend and I spent a week at Moorgair in June 21. The cottage is a delightful place to stay, the owners have achieved a good balance between modern functionality, e.g. the well-equipped fitted kitchen and bathroom, and more traditional furnishings although not old-fashioned. We appreciated the many touches that make a big difference like tissues in every room; plenty of spare bags for the rubbish bins; plenty of hand-gel and other Covid-safe supplies; large duvets; good quality towels, linen, fixtures and fittings; attractive ornaments without cluttering the place. I slept in the twin room and as I walked in after a long hot drive it was a great pleasure to see the soft pastel harmonious colours. There was plenty of room to store my clothes, the bed was very comfortable and I appreciated that the quilt cover was a double or king, certainly bigger than a single so none of the usual problems of it falling off or me waking up with a cold back. The sound proofing seemed good as when my friend stayed up to watch TV I couldn’t hear it. Moorgair is in a beautiful tranquil rural location, surrounded by fields and trees. The cottage itself is private with it’s own garden and outdoor furniture. I believe the owners operate a working farm so there are cattle, sheep and other animals in the fields from time to time – nice for a townie. It is well placed for visiting many of the charming villages, towns and cities in the North East as well as attractions such as Hadrian’s Wall and for walking. The owner lives next door and as other reviews have remarked was always polite and very helpful but never intrusive. It was a delight to stay at Moorgair. My friend and I consider ourselves fortunate to have found it and would be very pleased to recommend it. Thank you for providing such a lovely place and for being such nice hosts.

Moorgair is a comfortable and cosy cottage which is well equipped and maintained. We were made very welcome by the owners and appreciated the cakes and biscuits they provided for our arrival. The cottage is ideally situated for visits to lots of local places of interest. We had a great week thank you very much.

A very comfortable, cosy cottage in the heart of rural Northumberland. Within easy reach of Northumberland National Park, Hadrians Wall, Cheviot Hills and Durham & Newcastle. The owners did a brilliant job in deep cleaning the property before we arrived and everything was geared to keeping us safe during the pandemic. The owner, Gordon, also lived next door to deal with any questions we had,

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.
