“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

My husband, son and I stayed in this gem of a B & B just one night and were only sorry we couldn't stay longer. The two rooms we had were beautifully furnished and maintained. Quality linens everywhere, and spotlessly clean. Everything looked brand new. We had lovely views of the surrounding countryside (eg cows in the meadows) and our son had a glimpse of Lake Windermere from his room. Ian and Christine were the perfect hosts - they recommended and booked us a great restaurant for dinner, and cooked us a delicious breakfast the next day. Just a short, relaxing walk to Bowness-on-Windermere. This is definitely the place to stay when you visit the Lake District.

Spent 4 nights here last week. Everything was either very good or excellent. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. The next time we visit the Lakes, we shall certainly try to stay here. It was an excellent base for seeing most of the Lake District, nowhere more than half an hours drive away.

Room Tip: We had Room 6 (Ground Floor), Kingsize Bed and the room was large with comfy chairs. En-suite was al...

My wife and I stayed 3 nights and it was one of the best places I have stayed at. The room was clean and warm and very welcoming. It's just a short walk to Lake Windermere. The breakfast was fantastic too. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Lake District.

With a plethora of accommodation options on offer, I selected Fair Rigg off the net. What a find! The attention to detail was excellent. All of our needs were covered and the friendliness of Ian and Christine, the owners was exceptional. Great breakfasts; good choices; clean and cosy room and all at a reasonable rate. Havde stayed in many B and B's throughout the world. This is in our top five. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor and at the front have a great vista of the lake and mountains

My partner and myself went for two nights and had a fab time.we stayed in room 6 which is on the ground floor. The room was spacious and immaculately clean. Lovely decor. Fantastic breakfast. Ian and christine couldnt have been more helpful. It was a pleasure to stay there. It was peaceful and quiet. A 15 min walk into bowness or take a taxi which was only a few pounds. We will certainly be back. Thanks again for a lovely stay. Roz and Trev newcastle.

...AND IT WILL BE HARD TO TOP....Lovely hosts - Ian was great at breakfast and very good with his advice.Very helpful with luggage - amazing how many other hosts disappear from this particularly tiresome chore!
The B&B is charming stylish and spotless with everything you need.Gt WiFi too.
Breakfast was faultless.
This is a true 10/10 in spite of being only 4 stars.
It isn't in the centre of town but the walk down is very pretty and the cab back after dinner is cheap.
Their tariff is excellent value for money. I would recommend this B&B 110%

Room Tip: The downstairs room even though it is by the front door is very quiet and convenient.
