Just returned from a two night stay in this wonderful relaxing B & B. I can only totally agree with all previous reviews and have got to be truthful and say I tried to find a fault to comment on about our stay BUT no chance. This was a superb stay in a very special place. Every comfort catered for,... More

Excellent room and in room facilities. We received a very warm welcome and were quickly booked in and settled into our room. The Owner was extremely helpful and recommended a local pub for our evening meal, which she booked for us. We only stayed one night but would have been very happy to stay longer. The location is about 2... More

Excellent hosts, on a lovely relaxing property just outside Hexham. Stayed with a family, our first time in a B & B, instead of a hotel. Rooms are very good, clean, relaxing. Breakfasts have good choice & very good. Can't fault it at all. An excellent base for outdoor activities such as walking the wall and visiting roman museums. Would... More

Only wonderful comments about this charming B&B tucked on a ridge close to Hardian's wall. This small gentleman's farm even has a herd of alpacas in residence. Fairsahw Rigg's friendly and attentive owners make guests feel right at home from the moment of arrival. Very clean accommodations, yummy breakfasts, great touring and dinner suggestions, and close to walks along Hadrian's... More

We had such fun hosting the four of you and are really pleased you seem to have had such a great time. We've had all 7 cria now arrive safely - if not without complications! They are all now thriving in our late summer sun. Thanks for the lovely review and hope you will return one day. More

Nothing but good things to say about our brief stay at Fairshaw Rigg. Nice welcome and introduction to the room, house and local area with good recommendation for Sunday meal - Carts Bog Inn (try the speciality dish of Bog Pie as it's awesome but bring your appetite!!) . Room was comfortable with great king size bed and choice of... More

We found Hexham is a fascinating town with lots to see and FREE parking (yes, honest!) So where to stay? We chose Fairshaw Rigg where we received a very warm welcome. It was a quiet and peaceful house on a road out of Hexham. The en-suite rooms were spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable; even the bathroom was spacious. Then the... More

Many thanks for your "Just Perfect" review and all your very kind words. I often joke that Beans on Toast is my speciality when left to cook, even though it's not on the menu - so I was only too delighted to prepare it when asked. Hope you can stay for longer next time rather than just passing through. More

My husband and I stayed at this very comfortable B&b for only one night in early June. I wished we had stayed longer as both Hexham and the B&b had so much to offer. Our hosts, Paul and Kathryn were very welcoming, our room was beautifully furnished, very clean and the ensuite was large with a bath and a powerful... More

We spent a very enjoyable week at Fairshaw Rigg and wish we'd booked for longer! We were made extremely welcome, the room was quiet, clean and very comfortable, and the breakfasts were exceptionally good, with eggs from their very own hens. We were given very good advice about local attractions to visit (of which there are many!) and we thoroughly... More
