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

In a quiet but handy location, we found this extremely comfortable and Paul was most helpful. We came to this without seeing any details as our stay was treat from our family. Breakfast was wonderful and the location is really good for exploring the Hexam area and beyond.

Superb in every way, Fairshaw Rigg sets the highest standard for a B&B. Kathryn and Paul were excellent hosts, friendly and helpful at every turn. The rooms are very comfortable and well-presented and breakfast is a veritable feast. The location is perfect for visiting Hadrian's Wall as well as the more northerly dales but the setting itself on a quiet... More

We are blessed to be in the heart of such great countryside with Northumberland, the Wall and the Tyne Valley all so close. You are so right to also highlight Weardale and Teesdale too though - the drive to them alone is breathtaking! Glad you enjoyed such great weather too - long may it continue.
