Having stayed at numerous B & B establishments in the UK myself and my partner have voted Fair Rigg the outright winner of COMFIEST BED AWARD. The room was nice and light and cosy and a pleasing mix of traditional and modern, with nice ornaments and trinkets not too much not too bare. A nice view from the room with... More

Thank you for your lovely review. If I can just explain your negative comment on breakfast time, we ask for your order of tea, coffee etc. by 8.55 we don't expect you to start your meal by then, we want you to enjoy your breakfast experience. It was unintentional I missed saying goodbye I usually always make a point of... More

I stayed at this beautiful B&B for valentines weekend with my boyfriend, and we could not have picked a more lovely place to stay! Everything about Fair Rigg was brilliant. The scrambled egg was the nicest scrambled egg I have ever had and the service was excellent. Christine and Ian are wonderful hosts and are so helpful when it comes... More

We stayed at the Fair Rigg for two nights in December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Ian & Christine were great hosts, very welcoming and very knowledgeable of the local area. The room was spacious & spotlessly clean, although a little on the chilli side after dark. The breakfast was great, good quality and the choice was a refreshing change... More

We sadly only stayed here for two nights but our time at Fair Rigg was just divine. Set in a picture perfect part of the world, the actual bed and breakfast fit well into this setting. From the welcoming hosts, the gorgeous rooms (including the most incredible linen), selection of great DVDs to watch after a day of hiking, being... More

Spotlessly clean, freshly-decorated, warm, quiet, very comfortable and friendly guest house just outside the town. Our room, second floor double, had views over a field and trees up the lake towards Windermere. The bed was comfortable with soft sheets and plenty of covers if it had been cold and the room was large with a sofa so we could use... More
