Award-winning 4 Star Fair Rigg Guest House in Bowness on Windermere is a charming B&B offering guests simple and stylish, traditional bed and breakfast accommodation in the heart of the Central Lakes. The guest-house was designed and built in the heyday of Victorian architecture at the end of the 19th century, and is beautifully appointed with spectacular views of the local Fells.
The house enjoys a country setting, and yet remains within easy walking distance of Bowness and the shore of Lake Windermere. Guests benefit from easy access to Bowness specialist shops, restaurants and inns as well as boat trips on Windermere. Designed to take full advantage of its hillside location, the house offers fine views, with most rooms looking out over fields and trees to the lake and fells beyond.
We have 6 bedrooms, offering exceptional quality and uniquely designed to lift your spirits. All rooms are light, fresh, clean and of a good size, with plenty of room to relax and unwind.
Each room is individually decorated and furnished to a high modern standard, with leather tub chairs and leather sofas, and equipped with flat-screen TVs and DVD player. All the bedrooms are en-suite, four of them having a bath as well as a shower.
The rooms come with toiletries and of course the usual hospitality tray. They are served by an efficient hot water system.
Start the day in our dining room which has a large bay window looking out towards the hills, providing an ideal setting for a relaxing breakfast which is served between 08:30 and 09:00. We offer a large selection of cereals, fruit and juices. Full English with locally sourced produce and lighter bites if required. All with plenty of tea or a cafetiere of coffee and toast.

You may want to visit Hill Top Farm which was where Beatrix Potter used to come for a holiday. The famous children's author wrote many of her beloved novels here. Beatrix eventually bought the farm and other properties which she left to the National Trust when she passed away. Hill Top is perfect for visiting on a summer's day and easily accessed via the Windermere Ferry which departs regularly just south of Bowness.
