We have just returned from a short break at the Fair Rigg Guest House and I must say this B & B is of a very high standard, we where made to feel at home by Christine and Ian right from the start, all the rooms and food are to a very high standard. We had a lovely relaxing time... 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...

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 stayed here with my husband for our first trip to the lakes and we would highly recommend staying here. It's location is great and excellent value for money. Great breakfasts and a super comfy and well appointed room. What more could you ask for.
