    Mrs Geissler, Munich, June 2014

    • “Moorgair Cottage was delightful, well laid-out, beautifully decorated and furnished and extremely comfortable. It was perfect for a family of three, and would be equally so for four or five. A good, quiet location, within easy reach of Hexham and all Hadrian's Wall sites, not to mention Newcastle itself if the weather turns particularly bad. We would be delighted to stay here again, and will certainly revisit the area, and would definitely recommend to friends.”

    Dr Barker, Newcastle, May 2014

    • “Cottage was very clean and warm. Owners friendly. Lovely location. Easy access to places to visit. Northumberland is a beautiful part of the country - perfect place for a quiet country retreat with plenty of places to visit if you want to.”

About the location


Newcastle 22 miles.

A bustling little market town, Hexham has several antique shops and is popular with tourists visiting nearby Hadrian’s Wall. Beautiful old Hexham Abbey dates back to the 7th century and has a superb Saxon crypt. Shoppers flock to colourful stalls in The Shambles in the Market Place on Tuesday and close by is the 14th century Moot Hall, now an art gallery. The town boasts plenty of open spaces, particularly the Sele next to the abbey, which is now a lovely public park. Nearby is Tyne Green - a riverside country park - and Hexham Race Course is just to the south of the town.
