Stayed 2 nights and had a fantastic time. Warm, friendly welcome and food was excellent. Enjoyed playing with the dogs and seeing the Alpacas. Central location for visting sites on Hadrians wall. Great places to eat nearby in the evenings.

We stayed for three nights to dome some walking and visit a few National Trust properties in the area. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped, breakfast is excellent with a good choice of dishes, and the hosts are very pleasant and helpful. The location, so close to Hexham, is convenient for a wide choice of Pubs and Restaurants. If... More

By far the best B&B we have stayed at - modern, spotlessly clean, peaceful and with every little personal touch thought of. Our children travelled with us and enjoyed the dogs, Alpacas and the trampoline. The breakfast was excellent and both Paul and Kathryn were the perfect hosts; nothing was too much trouble.

A welcoming B&B with large, comfortable rooms and Llamas to look at while you are enjoying an excellent breakfast. This is a great place to stay - quiet, well run and friendly. There are dogs and cats to chat to if you are missing your own pets.

Stayed at Fairshaw Rigg for two nights, great location just outside Hexham, close to vindolanda site and the Roman army museum, both of which we enjoyed very much. The accommodation is first class, beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard. We enjoyed two very good nights sleep. It was immaculately clean. Also lovely to see the alpacas in the...

The room was clean, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The served breakfast was very tasty. The attached alpaca farm made the stay more of an experience than just a place to rest. Paul and Kathryn were very friendly and accommodating. Kindly booked us a reservation at a local Pub which served great food. Convenient location for travelling to attractions in... More

A nice quiet B&B that is ideal for a visit to Hadrian's Wall. There are alpacas and chickens. The rooms are very well decorated, modern and clean. Breakfast was of a very high standard with fresh eggs and homemade jam. Paul was very helpful with advice on the wall.

We really appreciate the 5 stars! We do work hard but it is so worth it when people enjoy themselves. The young alpacas are flourishing with still one to arrive. Hope to see you on your next visit to the family. Thanks so much. More

We stayed 5 nights at the Fairshaw Rigg - it is in such a good location to explore Hadrian's Wall and get to the beautiful coast. Rooms and facilities are great. Breakfasts were the best - especially the scrambled eggs and homemade bread! Thanks to Paul and Kathryn for being so friendly and helpful!

We were unusually high-maintenance visitors, arriving in the middle of a World Cup playoff match, and then promptly losing our keys in our car. Paul and Kathryn were charming, gracious and helpful, and it was Paul who found our keys the next day. They were probably glad to see us go, but you would never have known it from how... More
