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.

We stayed for just two nights in June, and were delighted with this place. The room was spotless, comfortable, and spacious. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice, and the owners were very helpful and friendly. The location was perfect, being just out of Hexham, in beautiful countryside. I would readily recommend Fairshaw Rigg to anyone going to this... More

Our room was lovely and the bathroom spacious and well-equipped; it's spotlessly clean. Paul was a fabulous host and the breakfast was superb. A really comfortable nights sleep - the duvet was alpaca fleece and i shall seriously think about investing in one. Would definitely return.

This place is a gem. Fabulous location, in beautiful countryside while being very convenient for Hexham, Hadrian's Wall and other attractions. The rooms are beautiful, and superbly comfortable. We particularly liked the bathrooms: modern, spacious, and with everything you could possibly need provided. The family are welcoming and hospitable. Breakfast was first-rate, with some thoughtful options alongside the traditional full... More

Four of us spent four nights here last week -- taking two of the three available rooms -- and we can't speak highly enough of our hosts, Paul and Kathryn and their daughter Hannah.
