Spent 2 nights hear, owners looked after us very well. If we return we will book another room as we had a lot of noise from the road. Breakfast very good with plenty of choice and fresh produce. I would return if in the area again.

We had a wonderful visit to rockside the owners were so friendly and helpful and the homemade treats in reception were a delicious touch. In a great location near train station and a short walk to town and lake, also nice viewpoint walks. There are plenty of nice places to eat there too. I would definitely recommend buying some of...

It's really easy to find this place, it's just off the main road. Road noise wasn't really a problem even though it is quite busy and the windows are original sash windows We stayed 2 nights only - no 3 night minimum stay... It's right at the top end of the village, but just 2 minutes from the pubs and... More

I agree with all the other great reviews of this hotel. I have stayed previously for one night and it was fantastic! Great location, beautiful room, welcoming staff and the breakfast is incredible (we left with plenty of marmalade and regret not putting an order in for the banana bread!) My only complaint is the 3 night minimum stay that... More

I stayed here between September 8 and September 12. The best way I can describe it is utterly amazing. Caroline was a fabulous host. She'll make you feel like an old family friend as soon as you walk in the door. Homemade banana bread and award-winning marmalade were super tasty. I bought a jar of marmalade to take home. I...

Just spent 2 nights at the Rockside. Stayed in room 1 which was very nice, plenty of room, good size bath room and a dressing area, it is on the top floor which wasn't a problem. Breakfast was good, plenty to choose from. The distance from the guest house to the lake is about a mile and a half, we... More

My husband and I decided to go to the Lake District as a belated birthday present for him, and as a last wee trip away before we have our first child in November. We chose the Rockside as it had good reviews, well these people were not wrong; we had an absolutely lovely stay. We were greeted with a very... More
