Quite restful location. Owners very pleasant and accommodating. Well furnished.
Dr Barker

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.

Spotlessly clean ,fabulous location, really friendly owners and of course the inquisitive alpacas. Far enough out of town to be remote, but central to lots of interesting attractions. Hope to be back soon.
