A warm welcome from Christine and Ian. Lovely clean accommodation with everything you need. Personal touches that other places don't always think of. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Would certainly recommend to others.

Me and my fiancé visited the lake district for an over night stay at the beginning of March 2015. We decided to stay at Fair Rigg Guest House as we passed it on the way in to the centre and must admit it was an excellent choice. Both hosts were very attentive, chatty (but not invasive) and helpful which made... More

Went to the Lake District for four days after Easter. B & B in a lovely location. Our room overlooked a field where the sheep had just lambed - such a lovely view. The room was a nice size and decorated lovely with an en suite. The house itself was very clean and decorated to a very high standard. We... More

We stayed one night in a double room overlooking the lake, lovely furnishings and bedding, such a treat to relax and see the hills and trees from the window. Christine and Ian were so welcoming and advised us about walking to town and the best restaurants, even gave us a torch for the way home! Our breakfasts were perfect, mine... More

I would call Fair Rigg a boutique B&B. Phenomenal views of the lake and fields. We stayed in Room 5, which we would strongly recommend. Ian and Christine are lovely. They gave us directions to Bowness (10-15 minutes) on our first night and provided us with torches as a part of the road is unlit. They also gave us recommendations... More

Fair Rigg is a superb B&B, this was our second visit having stayed the year before. The owners of the B&B "Ian & Christine" are very friendly and Ian has some great banta. I spent my 29th birthday there and Ian was kind enough to buy me a gift. Mine and my girlfriends breakfast requirements were off the menu however... More

We found this B&B extremely comfortable on our 2 nights stay in February. The weather was awful so it was great that our room was warm and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfasts were lovely. It helped that, due to the bad weather meaning our walks were pretty short, there was also great entertainment to be had... More

It rarely happens that you plan a last minute trip to a wonderland, on a supposedly busy period, look around the internet to find that all the named and highly rated places have either sold out or are costing more than a trip to Mars, you settle down for an unknown place that is available, pray that it, atleast, is...
