We booked a double room and were allocated room 5 which enjoys a lake view. The room was bigger than we expected, having a sofa in it to sit and relax. The room was spotlessly clean and the linen felt really luxurious. The breakfast was good quality ingredients cooked well. It was a substantial breakfast to keep you going throughout... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were allocated room 5 at the top of the house. It was wonderful with a fabulous view over Lake Windermere in the distance. The room was spacious, light and airy, with a comfy bed, and a sofa, which you rarely get in a guest house. Everything was spotlessly clean. My only complaint, and... More

Thank you for your lovely review, we were really pleased you enjoyed your stay. On the booking side we don't allocate rooms it is purely preference of the person booking, each room is explained on our site and the room in question (room 5) is described as on the second floor, because of this it has got superb views but...

We came across Fair Rigg via Tripadvisor and were so bowled over by the brilliant reviews that we decided to book for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. It was everything we could have hoped for. I echo all previous comments about the excellent hospitality from Ian and Christine, we felt very welcome and they were a valuable source... More

Had a lovely weekend at the fair rigg guest house. The room was fully equipt with everything you need, very clean and a lovely comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent and Ian and Christine are very friendly and helpfull. I would recommend walk 6 in the guest book, great views of Windermere from School Knott.

Fair Rigg Guest house is a lovely bed & breakfast on the outskirts of Bowness and as it states on their website takes 10-15 minutes to walk into the centre. Christine and Ian are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very comfortable and have little extras in the room like airfreshner in the bathroom which... More

We had a lovely stay at this guest house, mainly down to a very friendly, helpful couple, Christine & Ian. They made sure our stay was comfortable and pleasant. Gave us lots of information regarding area and attractions. Fair Rigg is a 20 minute walk to Bowness Pier, but it's nice scenery on the way. Great location to stay, peaceful... More
