Convenient location for exploring Tyne Valley and Hadrians Wall. Lovely breakfast with local ingredients. Quiet, clean rooms with good sized en suite. Beautiful view of rolling hillside to the front..

We have stayed at Fairshaw Rigg before but not for a while so was interested to see if the standards were as high, we were not disappointed! The rooms are first class and the greeting is always warm and friendly. Everything is so lovely and clean and welcoming it was a real pleasure to stay here. Don't miss the Northumberland... More

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...."
