We stayed at Fairshaw Rigg for four nights and it was always a pleasure to come back to, being warm, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. The family is very 'sympathique' and it was so interesting seeing the alpacas and hearing about their breeding and care. The breakfasts were delicious with lots of choice and plenty of time to...

After quite a difficult drive in very thick fog, we were relieved to arrive at Fairshaw Rigg on the outskirts of Hexham - farm buildings converted to a very high standard and offering very comfortable, one-level en suite accommodation. Definitely a highlight were the alpaca duvets and pillows - the owners have a flock of these gentle animals and their... More

The beds were very comfy and soft, was the best night sleep of our trip! Breakfast was delicious with a lot of choice. And loved the animals. Would recommend to all... More

This was my second visit and it lived up to my memories. The rooms are large and clean with fresh milk provided in a shared fridge. The hosts are obliging and very knowledgeable about the local area being only too happy to suggest local walks, restaurants and tourist attractions. Breakfast is eaten at a large table where all the guests... More

Well located for Hexham and the glorious surrounding countryside- Hexham is just over 5 minutes away. Very comfortable ensuite accommodation, wonderful breakfasts and blissful sleep under alpaca duvets. I have never slept better- forget Siberian goose down alpacas rule! The actual alpacas graze peacefully outside your window. Wonderful warm, friendly hosts. Perfect!

My wife and I recently revisited Fairshaw Rigg to see if it was as good as when we stayed in the summer. The answer? Every bit as good if not better. This time we had a different room with the same Alpaca pillows and duvet which made for a great nights sleep despite the storm raging without. As before everything... More

My partner and I went on a last minute trip to the North East, choosing to stay at Fairshaw Rigg because of the reviews on this site. Firstly, I can’t recommend staying here enough. Secondly, we will definitely stay here again. The room and facilities were top class, with many little touches that made our stay as comfortable as being... More

We were going horseracing, at Hexham, and our friends found this Bed and Breakfast – and what a find. Lovely rooms, lovely hosts, freshly cooked breakfast (with eggs from their own hens), all coupled with a great night’s sleep. The room was nicely presented, the bed very comfortable, (complete with alpaca duvet), and the bathroom was large with big soft... More

There is a great attention to detail in the rooms including; somewhere to put those dirty boots, fresh milk for drinks, hot water bottles and when they noticed we had some wine glasses appeared for the next day.
