What a wonderful place to stay. A perfect location for Windermere and travelling anywhere in the Lakes. We had a lovely, clean and tidy room (we stayed in room 4) and the breakfasts were superb, particularly the homemade yogurt, granola and fruit compote, as well as the full English. Would fully recommend.

This was our first visit to the Lake District and the location of Rockside combined with the clean room, lovely choice of breakfast and friendly hospitality added to the experience. I would recommend this guest house and Caroline also gave us good advice on the area and which walks would be recommended for us. Sandra & Vic

This was a return visit to Rockside, I would recommend anyone to choose this establishment, lovely rooms, great service and fantastic breakfasts with lots of homemade items! Another big plus is Rockside has it's own parking which is a big advantage in this location.

This was my first time to the Lake District and one of the reasons I would come back again is due to this guesthouse. We spent 3 night here at the beginning of August, it was very comfortable, clean and Caroline was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast here is also very delicious! The location is perfect. Nice cafés and... More

This was our second time visiting the Lake District and on both occasions we stayed at Rockside. The location of the B&B is perfect as it's close to the town centre where you can find an array of bars, restaurants and shops; also its a nice 20-30mins stroll to the lake with lovely views. Caroline is so lovely and friendly,... More

We spent 3 nights in July at the Rockside in room 2. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean. Caroline and Martin are warm and welcoming hosts and they bring an attention to details that is reflected throughout from their guide full of information about the area to the superb breakfasts and other goodies they serve. Good location near the train... More

Another great stay at Rockside. Very clean, superb food and wonderful hospitality from Caroline and Martin. Central location and easy access to motorway. Caroline's delicious homemade goodies were an added bonus. Looking forward to our next stay. John and Linda

We have just spent a lovely week for our honeymoon at Rockside. We went with friends and both couples had a very enjoyable stay. Both Martin and Caroline were fabulous hosts and all the fresh baking goodies were most welcome as was the super breakfast. We enjoyed taking Rocky the dog out with us for the day trips we had....

Caroline and Martin love what they do at their beautiful B and B and that certainly shows with the wonderful extras and friendliness provided to their guests. Everything has been said before in previous reviews of the Rockside, the comfortable beds, quality toiletries, the library with reviews and recommendations from other guests on different restaurants in Windermere, and the breakfast.........oh,...
