From the moment we arrived Caroline & Martin were warm and welcoming. The guest house itself was absolutely beautiful and the food was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. The photos on the website do not do this place justice. We would highly recommend a stay at Rockside if you are visiting the Lake District.

From receiving my first phone call to arrange storage of my mountain bike at the B&B to saying our fair-wells, I was very impressed with both the hospitality and service that I was shown. Beautiful location, great room, even more impressive was the breakfast and biscuits :-) It was a delight to meet the owners and I will be certain... More

Can't really fault the Rockside, a warm and friendly reception. The room was very clean and a good size. As with all the other reviews, the breakfast is fantastic! So much to choose from and it was very tasty. Location is perfect, close to several bars/restaurants and about 10-15 minute walk to lake Windermere. Windermere itself is a really nice... More

This was our 4th visit to Rockside - perfect location for us and had another lovely stay in room 2! Really enjoyed the breakfast and appreciated all the homemade goodies, and the biscuits (especially the jammie dodgers) - delicious! Thank you Caroline and Martin, we will be back next year.

The stay was good, very cute and quirky room, but the bathroom was just too small. The breakfast was just superb.The location is good, specially for the once who plan to use public transport. Its from a walking distance to bowness , railway station and restaurants.

Another warm welcome here which is our 3rd visit. A lovely quirky B&B always with slices of cake, shortbread, mints etc as you come and go. THE BED AND MATTRESS is so amazingly comfortable which I have found out came from 'Time4Sleep' and is where ours is next coming from! THE BREAKFAST is amazing and a lot of it is... More

This is our second visit to the Rockside, and I must say, it is as great as ever. You will not find a place in Windermere that offers the same levels of hospitality for the price. The breakfast, the home made cookies, the cleanliness.. you name it!! Its 10/10!
