Having just spent 4 nights staying at the Rockside, I thoroughly recommend this excellent guest house. The food is very good indeed. The hosts, Caroline and Martin, are brilliant - they make you feel very welcome and are very helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and a nice size. Furthermore, the location of the Rockside is very convenient... More

Our room was very clean and comfortable and more spacious than we expected. Breakfast was excellent on both days, with a great choice available including some delicious homemade preserves, granola and... More

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.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Caroline who was extremely friendly and welcoming. She showed us to our room and recommended some things to do during out stay. Our room (room 5) was the perfect size for the two of us and the beds are ridiculously comfy! There are tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms along with a... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago. We phoned and booked 2 rooms as we were staying with family and Caroline was able to answer lots of our questions. 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 spent a most enjoyable 5 days at Rockside. We had a very pleasant room and were extremely comfortable. 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

I stayed at Rockside for 8 nights from 7-15 June 2015. I had an excellent stay and intend to return for my next stay in the Lake District. 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
