The decor of our room was elegant and spacious and the facilities were modern and clean. The hosts were so friendly and accommodating. . . I would recommend staying at Fair Rigg to anyone wanting a relaxing, peaceful holiday with warm, generous hosts.  Catherine (NZ) stayed July 2016


Fair Rigg, Superb Guest House in Bowness-on-Windermere


Fair Rigg Period Guest House in Bowness on Windermere

Welcome to Fair Rigg, a beautiful period guest house in Bowness on Windermere, where Richard and Christine provide high quality, comfortable and stylish accommodation. Relax and enjoy comfortable beds in well appointed, spacious rooms with Period features and all with large en-suite bathrooms, mostly with baths. Home-made breakfasts and a warm welcome await you in the lovely surroundings of The Lake District National Park.  Unfortunately we cannot accept pets and neither do we accept children under 14 years old. We have our own private car park with spaces for one car per room and there is flat access from the car park to our reception.

Fair Rigg was built in 1890 and still retains many of its period features including beautiful fireplaces and the lovely sash windows frame views of the Fells and glimpses of Lake Windermere.

The house is situated a short pleasant walk of approximately 15 mins from the centre of Bowness with its many bars, restaurants and shops as well as the beautiful shore of Lake Windermere itself.  It is close enough to enjoy the great facilities that Bowness offers but far enough away to avoid the noise

The patio at the front of the house is the perfect place to admire the view or enjoy the sunset with a drink.
