Superb b&b the best we've ever stayed in. Warm welcome, beautiful spacious light rooms. Great breakfast served in the orangery looking out over the hills. All this plus alpacas, chickens, two very friendly dogs and cats made it a perfect stay for us.

I used this B&B for clients visiting the area from overseas and the feedback was excellent a round. Hosts cannot do enough for you and the standards are exceptionally high. Highly recommend Fairshaw Rigg.

Perfect location for visiting Vinlandia and the rest of the wall in that area. The proprietors were super and the rooms clean and well kept. Their advice on restaurants and where to visit was spot on. Parking was good also. Warning; make sure your map or gps knows where Low Gate is. Mine didn't resulting in a little anxiety....

Had a wonderful and enjoyable stay. Everything was perfect. The room was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was superb and our hosts charming. The property was in a wonderfully quiet location just outside Hexham. Slept like a log and would certainly recommend this b&b to anyone and everyone.

An excellent B&B. The whole family was very welcoming and made our stay very pleasant. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the en-suite bathroom spacious. The breakfast was delicious and there was a great range of items to choose from. Visiting the alpacas in the field was lovely. The B&B is near Hexham (40 mins to walk), but you'd need... More

There is nothing new to say about this wonderful establishment that has not been said many times already in these reviews. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the whole experience was special, even trying to lock the doors with the wrong key was entertaining while it lasted. Many thanks to Kathryn & Paul who were always... More

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.
