Just returned from a long weekend at the Firgarth. What a wonderful place. We cant praise it enough. The breakfast was superb, the room couldn't be faulted. Pam was a lovely hostess and made up feel really welcome. Would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone. Didn't want to leave.

This little gem was incredibly clean and comfortable, a very friendly reception on arrival, coffee and biscuits and lots of information on the local area both in terms of walks and entertainment.

After having a weekend at this B&B I can't praise it enough. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left I couldn't have asked for a better B&B to stay at. Nothing was too much of a task for the owners to help improve our stay. Breakfast was great. Wide range of options cooked to order with something... More

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left for the second time nothing was a problem at the Firgarth! Free off street parking, tea or coffee on arrival while you book in definitely beats the usual 'fill this in and I'll show you your room' approach, Pam took plenty of time to help us plan Saturdays trip to...

So I diligently read the reviews before booking & I liked what I read and booked it. As a B & B (in terms of room size and amenities), the Firgarth is very similar to other B & Bs that my fiancé and I have stayed at. What makes the Firgarth different is the additional touches that Pam and Colin... More
