Great hotel very clean Ian and Christine are so welcoming and the breakfast is fab especially the porridge with brown sugar and fresh cream is a must . The fair rigg is about a 10 to 15 minuet steady walk from the centre of bowness. Will be visiting again

Five star accommodation, five star breakfast and five star hosts. I can honestly say this sums up our experience at Fair Rigg, a characterful property, just 15minutes walk away from the stunning Bowness-on-Windemere. Christine and Ian were the perfect hosts and nothing was to much trouble, offering vouchers for discounts to some of the attractions, advice on where to visit... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review it was an absolute pleasure having you both to stay at Fair Rigg. Re. breakfast times from 8.30 but all we ask is for tea and coffee orders by 8.55 but we like people to enjoy a leisurely breakfast beyond that. More

We recently stayed in Fair Rigg for the first time for a lovely weeks holiday in the Lake District. Ian and Christine were wonderful hosts, very friendly and welcoming. Ian even washed our dirty shoes for us, and left them out to dry so that we could use them the next day! We had mentioned that we were celebrating our... More

Very hospitable people - really helpful as we'd never been to the lakes before. Nicely located about 15 mins out of he hustle and bustle of Bowness. Excellent quality rooms and for what we paid an absolute steal!you'd pay double in a city 4 it.

We've been travelling in the UK for a few weeks and found this gem along the way. We have many to compare it too and it rates highly! Clean, beautifully decorated, views of the lake from our room, yummy breakfasts, helpful and kind owners. Lovely walk to the town where we found lots of places to eat and we enjoyed... More

Had an overnight stay On 10th June 2015 and was overwhelmed by the cleanliness, fresh smells and standard of our stop. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The guest house is only 15 minutes walk from the centre of Bowness so don't let it being outside the centre put you off. Breakfast and the breakfast service were excellent. Only... More

Thank you for your lovely review, re noise on road, it can be a bit busy through the day but quiet after 6 pm and through the night when you need it peaceful. More

Had a wonderful stay at Fair Rigg. The accommodation was homely and just right for a short break. Christine and Ian were both very knowledgeable about the local area. And they were very welcoming and accommodating. The breakfasts were excellent and the B&B was only a 15 minute walk from the lakeside at Bowness. We left with wonderful memories.
