Our hosts Ian and Christine were very welcoming and accommodating. They even changed the pillows for me on my bed because I did'nt sleep too well on the first night. All rooms are tastefully furnished, very clean with comfortable beds and ample storage space. Christine works tirelessly in the kitchen every morning and produces a superb breakfast whilst Ian is...

We stayed at Fairrigg from 25th August for three nights. From the first moment we were warmly welcomed by Ian and Christine. Their hospitality is only matched by the quality of accommodation, a fantastic breakfast that sees you through the day. Our room (room 2) was impeccably clean, spacious and extremely comfortable. The views from the room were picturesque across... More

My husband and I stayed here 23rd to 26th August 2015 for a wedding anniversary treat. I was a little reluctant to book a guest house, but was very glad we did. Ian and Christine were perfect hosts and we felt at home immediately. The location is perfect, only a very picturesque 15 min walk into Bowness where there are... More

Ian and Christine have developed wonderful walks that take you away from the beaten path. I did a 6 mile hike down the Western shore to a promontory and back overland by Potter's village. The B&B is just a few minutes away from a peak that is wonderful for watching the sunset over the lake, and you don't have to... More

Great hotel very clean Ian and Christine are so welcoming and the breakfast is fab especially the porridge with brown sugar and fresh cream is a must . The fair rigg is about a 10 to 15 minuet steady walk from the centre of bowness. Will be visiting again

Five star accommodation, five star breakfast and five star hosts. I can honestly say this sums up our experience at Fair Rigg, a characterful property, just 15minutes walk away from the stunning Bowness-on-Windemere. Christine and Ian were the perfect hosts and nothing was to much trouble, offering vouchers for discounts to some of the attractions, advice on where to visit... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review it was an absolute pleasure having you both to stay at Fair Rigg. Re. breakfast times from 8.30 but all we ask is for tea and coffee orders by 8.55 but we like people to enjoy a leisurely breakfast beyond that. More

We recently stayed in Fair Rigg for the first time for a lovely weeks holiday in the Lake District. Ian and Christine were wonderful hosts, very friendly and welcoming. Ian even washed our dirty shoes for us, and left them out to dry so that we could use them the next day! We had mentioned that we were celebrating our... More

Very hospitable people - really helpful as we'd never been to the lakes before. Nicely located about 15 mins out of he hustle and bustle of Bowness. Excellent quality rooms and for what we paid an absolute steal!you'd pay double in a city 4 it.
