My partner wanted to stay in a traditional B&B in the Lakes, and as ever, I used TripAdvisor to assist me. We were not disappointed. Our hosts, Christine and Ian made us very welcome on arrival and assisted us to our room. We chose the "king size" room and were delighted with it's spaciousness,comfort and cleanliness. Early darkness made it... More

Excellent stay at Fair Rigg. Very welcoming and generous hosts, even cleaned and dried our dirty walking boots. Comfortable rooms and a cracking breakfast. Good location, about a 10 minute walk to Bowness which has plenty of pubs and restaurants. Highly recommended!!

I shared the twin bedroom with one friend, whilst the other friend stayed in a double room on her own. Both rooms were spacious, nicely... More

We stayed here for two nights in August. Lovely guest house stayed in room 2. Everywhere spotless and clean, bed very comfy, breakfast very good all your needs catered for. The guest house is situated just outside bowness away from the main busy centre, the walk in is only 10mins very pleasant overall a very enjoyable stay
