    Gordon, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. The local village of Slaley has a Community run pub - The Rose & Crown - with a varied menu and excellent food. Plenty of interesting places in the area.

  • "The cottage was exceptionally clean, nicely presented and very comfortable."

    The owner lives on site and was very friendly and approachable. Situated in a quiet countryside location, this was the ideal base to travel to Hadrian's Wall or the Coast. We found no shortage of excellent places to eat nearby.

    It is comfortable with good quality furniture and it is very clean. The bed linen is beautiful and the kitchen is very well equipped. The host is friendly and helpful. The cottage is in a beautiful area and a good base to explore, with many National Trust and English Heritage places to visit. Corbridge is close by with nice walks and quaint shops. A truly lovely place to stay with lots of wildlife to watch from the window. I had never seen a hare close up, till going to Moorgair! Thank you.

    The cottage was warm and cozy, it had all the essentials things we needed including a washer and tumble dryer in the summerhouse. The owner Gordon was very nice and helpful and the highlight of the visit was getting to feed the alpaca that our on the property.

  • "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!

    The cottage was very comfortable and cosy. Moorgair is situated on a working farm, but is very quiet,we got a good night's sleep.The countryside here is beautiful. A restful time which we thoroughly enjoyed.

  • "We could not have asked for a more pleasant place to stay."

    Moorgair is situated in the beautiful surroundings of Northumberland and handily placed for exploring Northumbria, Cumbria, County Durham and beyond. The cosy accommodation was first class and had everything we could want and more. Gordon who owns the cottage and the farmhouse to which it is attached was the most friendly and easy-going host and it was a pleasure to be able to spend a week there. The only thing which would have made the our stay even more perfect would have been the luxury of more time to spend visiting the places we just didn’t have time to get to - something we intend to address by returning in the near future. A fantastic holiday in fantastic accommodation.

  • "This cottage, Moorgair, far exceeded our expectations."

    We have had quite a number of cottages experiences throughout G.B. and Eire, yet this particular one turned up trumps in every way. Largely as a result of the owners effort, going out of their way to make the accommodation the very best and relaxing experience. From the comfort offered by the furniture to the provision of spotless facilities for our well-being eg. Washing machine and dryer. This was a perfect location for any guests wishing to explore the extraordinary Northumberland countryside.

  • "Moorgair was a beautiful cottage off the beaten track."

    It was just the week we needed to escape our busy lives. The cottage was beautifully furnished, very cosy and very well equipped. Having a log burner was an added bonus and enabled us to cope with the wintry weather that Northumberland threw at us. I would definitely recommend it.

  • "You neednt take anything with you to this lovely cottage as Gordon the owner has provided everything needed even tea bags,coffee and sugar etc."

    Theres even a BBQ in the outhouse although our Xmas trip weather didnt see it get used. Really appreciated the log fire for the atmosphere although the central heating kept the cottage toasty anyway. Really good location for exploring and took train to Newcastle for the day and next time will go to Durham. Excellent choice and we can recommend it for a great stay and the two local pubs are excellent.

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.
