My aunt and I recently stayed at this B&B while in Hexham for a family celebration and we are so glad we did. Her son and daughter in law picked this for our stay and they made the perfect choice. The rooms are comfortable with lovely decor and the view from the window overlooking the surrounding countryside was so beautiful.... More

We chose to stay here based on internet reviews and are so glad we did. We thought the room was just about perfect - light and airy, comfy bed and everything we needed - even views of the alpacas in the morning! Breakfast in the Orangery was excellent and varied and we loved the sociability of eating with our fellow... More

We chose to stay here based on earlier reviews - so thank you. We agree Kathryn and Paul are faultless hosts. We had a very comfortable overnight stay and we also enjoyed meeting the animals, particularly the alpacas. An excellent breakfast set us up well for our journey home.

We visited Fairshaw Rigg when it first opened a few years ago - and glad to say it is still one of our favourite B&Bs. Paul and Kathryn are extremely welcoming and the accommodation and breakfasts remain superb. There is always something going on around the farm - with a now bigger herd of specialist alpacas to observe. During this... More

We arrived in Northumberland having never been, such beautiful countryside I can't believe we've never visited before. We arrived early & were shown immediately to our room. Katherine, one of the owners was very welcoming. The room was lovely, warm & very comfortable. The breakfast was described as a Northumberland breakfast & boy it was tasty, the eggs came from...

Our second visit to this wonderful B & B. We really feel now that we are friends with the owners.

A faultless B & B, with excellent hosts, Kathryn and Paul. Spotlessly clean throughout, and in a scenic location above Hexham. Our only caveat would be that breakfast is served to all guests around the one table....so if you're used to your own space, or feeling less than sociable in the morning (see website picture)....tough! As bedrooms are fairly small,... More

Many thanks for your feedback - which we always take very seriously. Would have loved to debate some of them personally as written form can "make mountains...."

We stayed at Fairshaw Rigg for two nights with some German friends. The accommodation was excellent in every way.

Thanks for your great review - Little Guinness is now 5 weeks old and is flourishing - he has doubled his birth weigh and thinks he owns the paddock.

I can't say enough good things about Fairshaw-Rigg and Paul and Kathryn! We spent two days there while exploring Hadrian's Wall the end of March.
