We had a very pleasant stay here in 2013 on the recommendation of my partners parents. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Although our bathroom was being repainted after some repair work we were not disturbed and all work was completed while we were out of the room. The B&B is in a very quiet, remote location but very... More

I found this place through tripadvisor. We stayed for two nights and had an amazing stay. From the first minute we felt like at home and welcome. Paul and his wife made it to the perfection with their set up of the nice and very clean rooms. Great breakfast. So far the best porridge I have eaten. Paul also took... More

That's so much Peter for all your kind words - Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and the porridge! The alpacas continue to thrive despite the weather turning rather more wet. We trust your new season will go well and hope to see you both again some time soon. More

Fairshaw Rigg had the most beautiful setting - just on the outskirts of Hexham. The room was pristinely clean and comfortable - a great bed with cosy alpaca wool duvet, large fluffy towels in the bathroom and a great array of tea, coffee and biscuits provided in the room. The breakfasts were truly delicious - local fresh produce used. Paul... More

We spent 4 nights at this lovely B&B. The room was cosy and well equipped, our hosts, Paul & Kathryn were very welcoming and the breakfasts were delicious. It was the perfect base for visiting Northumberland and all it's attractions. We are looking forward to returning in the near future.

We trusted Tripadvisor reviews when booking this B&B and wondered if it would live up to our expectations. Location is perfect for sightseeing in this area. Hosts very courteous and professional. Our double room was comfortable, well appointed, with all the things we look for such as quality tea and coffee making facilities with lovely biccies for that first cuppa... More

This was a lovely B&B just outside Hexham. The room was very cosy and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are well fitted out with thought given to the nice little touches which make your stay more enjoyable. Would recommend to any friends who are visiting this part of the country.

My wife and I stayed at Fairshaw Rigg a couple of miles outside Hexham for two nights. This small farm was lovely and meeting the alpaccas was even better. The room was small but had everything you needed and the food was great with a huge choice. This is a splendid place to stay while you explore Hadrian's Wall. Ask... More

Perfection top to bottom. Clean, cozy, soft linen, fragrant soaps. Excellent spot to relax. An old barn cleverly refurbished into a luxury stay in a beautiful English country side. Very peaceful. A little drive away is Hexham has surprisingly good restaurants.
