Good location, good breakfast, nice home made jams and marmalade . The room was nice and quiet, with a very comfy bed. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay, would definitely stay again. Happy to recommend to others.

Me and my husband came here in April and had a fantastic time. We have just stayed here again for our 12th Wed Anniversary on 6th August and had another fantastic time. The bed was so comfortable we did not want to get out of it and the breakfast was just amazing. There is everything on the menu and nothing... More

We stayed in Room 1 for three nights in August and couldn't fault a thing! Wonderful b and b. Clean, fresh room with everything you could need. Breakfast is tough....tough to decide what to have! Such a variety and so delicious! I tried something different each morning....the homemade scotch pancakes with special recipe golden syrup; the homemade waffles; the full... More

We stayed in room 2, which was an excellent suite room - very comfortable and clean. Location is good close to the centre of windermere and easy access to lakes around. Breakfasts were excellent and varied - we were there 6 days so tried different options and all good. Caroline and Martin were excellent hosts and helpful whenever we needed... More

This B&B is situated in a great place for exploring the Lake District! Only a 30 minute walk down to Bowness, with Ambleside, Ullswater, Derwentwater… etc all being fairly short drives away. The B&B has lots of useful information booklets. We particularly liked the welcome pack in our room that told us the journey times to the main villages/ towns,... More

This is the nicest guesthouse we have stayed and in with such attention to detail. I am not going to repeat all the other positive reviewers comments - there is no need they have already been noted. The owners are so clearly passionate about their 'baby' and it really shows. I feel you would be hard pressed to find anywhere... More

With its very convenient location, 2 minutes walk from Windermere bus and rail station, the Rockside Guest House is the perfect choice. From our arrival to our departure, we were treated to a very warm welcome and great hospitality from Caroline and Martin. Other places we have stayed in can be a bit fussy, with rules and regulations, but here... More

The room was very clean and breakfast was really nice, compliments to the chef. Nice breakfast choices. Mornings are greeted with a smile from Caroline the host and attentive to the guest needs. And the home-baked cookies is a 'must try'! A true home - touched bed and breakfast.

Booked room 1 on-line attracted by the slightly quirky look of the building; on arrival it was exactly as we'd hoped. The room is in the roof, reached by a narrow twisting staircase: The steeply sloped ceiling, simple but stylish decor and a shower room you could hold a party in made for an ideal 3 night stay....and so incredibly...
