We have just spend 4 days in Windermere, Rocklea was the perfect location for walking, shopping and eating. Ian was a very attentive host and nothing was too much trouble. Excellant choice of breakfast to the highest of quality. The superior room was spacious and had 2 lounge chairs, a lovely comfy bed.

The room was cozy, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was spot on, a great start to anyone's day with plenty to chose... More

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

After many hours of reading reviews of B&B's in Windermere we eventually decided to book the Rocklea as it was a good price and had excellent reviews. We weren't disappointed! On arrival, Ian greeted us in a really friendly manner, and after showing us to our room (3), made us coffee. He then spent a good amount of time explaining... More
