Succulent Beef“Had a wonderful Sunday lunch the beef which is reared on the hosts local farm was very tasty with lovely Yorkshire pudding and veg and as my daughter says the best gravy she has tasted. Having stayed here on few occasions can say the rooms are clean and comfortable with the hosts and locals making you feel very welcome. Thanks to Jo Mick and John the chef”Review: Graeme D Tripadvisor November 2017
A Durham Gem“Short notice overnight stay. Rooms all newly decorated en-suite and ours(room 9) was a comfortable double with views over the dales. Made very welcome by Jo & Michael who are obviously putting a lot into this. A lovely hearty full English breakfast with meats from their own farm, chef was welcoming also and all lovely to chat to. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again if we were in the area.”Review: sportbilly62 Doncaster Tripadvisor May 2017

Work has Started on our Glamping pods…To make the Moorcock Inn a sustainable rural business we must diversify, so we plan to bring posh camping to Teesdale. We have been granted planning permission to build 12 glamping pods and a shop to the rear of the Moorcock, work commences February 2018. Eggleston lost its local shop 14 years ago, which has had detrimental effect to the local community, we plan to open the glamping pod site shop to everyone from selling essentials to locally produced food and gifts. We hope that the expansion to the business will provide sustainable growth to the Moorcock and in turn provide jobs to local people.
Work started on the pod bases
