Our room at Rockside was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts were excellent. Martin and Caroline are very passionate about cooking great quality food. They source locally and cater to different dietery requirements. The welcome brownies were out of this world and Caroline kindly shared the recipe with us. We highly recommend Rockside and hope to return soon.

It is well located and as some of us were coming through on the train it's really nearby. Caroline was so friendly throughout and the freshly prepared biscuits each day... More

We were also well looked after - nothing seemed too much trouble for our hosts - and we would happily return at some stage. Rockside is very handy to the Windermere shops, train and bus stations which made access to the... More

The breakfast is fantastic - good portions, excellent variety in the breakfast options and menu, and good quality local ingredients. They also make their own marmalade, which is delicious. Breakfast is served... More

We stayed for 3 nights in June 2015. We really enjoyed our stay. Caroline was so nice and she brought in vegan products for breakfast for my husband even though we hadn't asked her. Rockside is in a fantastic location because you can easily access the A591 and the A592 or just go into Windermere village a few metres' walk... More
