We spent a few nights at Fairshaw Rigg during February half term (taking advantage of the 3 nights for 2 offer). Everything was wonderful. Delicious breakfast - best scrambled eggs ever according to our 7 year old! Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Our hosts couldn't have done more. Paul gave recommendations of where to eat and even booked... More

We stayed here on Valentines night for a local wedding and despite our relatively short stay we weren't disappointed. A friendly welcome, clean and spacious room nicely furnished and a lovely bathroom. All areas covered from hot drinks in the room, nice toiletries, a mini fridge with water and even alpaca bedding! The peaceful location meant a refreshing nights sleep... More

The location is very handy for Hexham and surrounds with no shortage of good places to eat , although you do need a car. However , the peace of the location makes up big time for this . The rooms are really comfortable and have everything you could possibly need . Breakfasts were delicious with a great choice and cooked... More

Delighted to revceive such a glowing review - we really enjoy what we do - we work hard, including the chickens, but its very worthwhile when guests seem to enjoy themselves so much. We are blessed with so much to see and do around here and the choice of good restaurants caps it off. Hope you'll come again soon. More

We booked a two night stay here & loved our time away there. Situated a few miles from Hexham & Allendale its perfect for a visit to either place. The room we stayed in was beautifully & tastefully finished with all the facilities you could want. The beds were very comfy & the en suite was excellent. Lovely hosts &... More

Superb b&b the best we've ever stayed in. Warm welcome, beautiful spacious light rooms. Great breakfast served in the orangery looking out over the hills. All this plus alpacas, chickens, two very friendly dogs and cats made it a perfect stay for us.

I used this B&B for clients visiting the area from overseas and the feedback was excellent a round. Hosts cannot do enough for you and the standards are exceptionally high. Highly recommend Fairshaw Rigg.

Perfect location for visiting Vinlandia and the rest of the wall in that area. The proprietors were super and the rooms clean and well kept. Their advice on restaurants and where to visit was spot on. Parking was good also. Warning; make sure your map or gps knows where Low Gate is. Mine didn't resulting in a little anxiety....

Had a wonderful and enjoyable stay. Everything was perfect. The room was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was superb and our hosts charming. The property was in a wonderfully quiet location just outside Hexham. Slept like a log and would certainly recommend this b&b to anyone and everyone.

An excellent B&B. The whole family was very welcoming and made our stay very pleasant. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the en-suite bathroom spacious. The breakfast was delicious and there was a great range of items to choose from. Visiting the alpacas in the field was lovely. The B&B is near Hexham (40 mins to walk), but you'd need... More

There is nothing new to say about this wonderful establishment that has not been said many times already in these reviews. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the whole experience was special, even trying to lock the doors with the wrong key was entertaining while it lasted. Many thanks to Kathryn & Paul who were always... More
