This B&B was easily found just along from Windermere town. It's in a great location, 5 or so minutes walk from the main part of Windermere town, and around 10 minutes walk to Bowness on Windermere where the lake can be reached and boat rides are situated. There was enough space on the road outside to park without issue. We... More

Can't find anything negative to say about Rocklea. Comfortable room and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. Ian was a very welcoming host providing tea and biscuits on arrival. Would definitely visit again.

We would easily consider revisiting this guest house on our next Lakes trip. Service was excellent and Windermere is well located for all Lakes centres. Room towels changed regularly and fittings were of a very good standard and very fresh. Breakfast had something for everyone and of a high quality.

My partner and I booked with Rocklea last minute and we have been more than happy with our choice! Ian, the owner, was polite, welcoming and more than helpful, supplying us with maps and giving directions to nearby towns. He even made us a cup of tea on arrival. The breakfast was outstanding and definitely keeps you going until lunch... More
