The room was lovely, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly and so helpful. Great breakfast with a good selection of food including freshly baked bread and really fresh eggs. We could see the chickens from our bedroom window. Lovely view having breakfast in the orangery. Loved my Alpaca experience. Informative and so brilliant.

We stayed one night on our way to Scotland. Everything was perfect. Peaceful place, well cared for, perfect room, wonderful owners, great breakfast. Who could ask for more! Great location if you want to explore Hadrian wall country. Just wish we had the time to spend a few more nights.

Paul and Catherine are excellent hosts. Wonderful welcome and the double, en suite room was gabled, light and airy with a large comfy bed. Bathroom was roomy and had delightful toiletries. Good wi-fi connection. Wide range on offer for breakfast using fresh, tasty produce. Shared table for breakfast which encouraged socialising with other guests. We would not hesitate to stay... More

We stayed overnight on our way back home to the Scottish Highlands from Yorkshire. Everything you would expect from a really good b&b was provided. The cleanliness was tip-top. Breakfast was delicious and Catherine and Paul were perfect hosts.

Just returned from a 3 night break at Fairshaw Rigg. Superb accomodation and can now fully understand why it is so highly rated by Tripadvisor reviewers. I can only echo the well made comments from others re the warmth of the reception from our hosts and the quality of the accomodation

Lovely B and B on the outskirts of Hexham. The room is fresh, bright and furnished to a high standard. Great en suite with a large shower and bath. Breakfast was first class with locally sourced produce and perfectly prepared. Very pleasant hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Definitely 5 star accommodation. Highly recommend.

Set in a beautiful Northumbrian location in close proximity to Hexham this B and B has it all! Lovely comfortable rooms with cosy alpaca duvets and pillows (great if you are allergic to anything!) and spacious en suite bathroom, fantastic hosts in Paul and Katharine - superb breakfasts from an amazing selection including homemade bread and free range home-laid eggs...
