Went to the Lake District for four days after Easter. B & B in a lovely location. Our room overlooked a field where the sheep had just lambed - such a lovely view. The room was a nice size and decorated lovely with an en suite. The house itself was very clean and decorated to a very high standard. We...

We stayed one night in a double room overlooking the lake, lovely furnishings and bedding, such a treat to relax and see the hills and trees from the window. Christine and Ian were so welcoming and advised us about walking to town and the best restaurants, even gave us a torch for the way home! Our breakfasts were perfect, mine...

I would call Fair Rigg a boutique B&B. Phenomenal views of the lake and fields. We stayed in Room 5, which we would strongly recommend. Ian and Christine are lovely. They gave us directions to Bowness (10-15 minutes) on our first night and provided us with torches as a part of the road is unlit. They also gave us recommendations...

Fair Rigg is a superb B&B, this was our second visit having stayed the year before. The owners of the B&B "Ian & Christine" are very friendly and Ian has some great banta. I spent my 29th birthday there and Ian was kind enough to buy me a gift. Mine and my girlfriends breakfast requirements were off the menu however...

We found this B&B extremely comfortable on our 2 nights stay in February. The weather was awful so it was great that our room was warm and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfasts were lovely. It helped that, due to the bad weather meaning our walks were pretty short, there was also great entertainment to be had...

My partner wanted to stay in a traditional B&B in the Lakes, and as ever, I used TripAdvisor to assist me. We were not disappointed. Our hosts, Christine and Ian made us very welcome on arrival and assisted us to our room. We chose the "king size" room and were delighted with it's spaciousness,comfort and cleanliness.

Excellent stay at Fair Rigg. Very welcoming and generous hosts, even cleaned and dried our dirty walking boots. Comfortable rooms and a cracking breakfast. Good location, about a 10 minute walk to Bowness which has plenty of pubs and restaurants. Highly recommended!!
