With its very convenient location, 2 minutes walk from Windermere bus and rail station, the Rockside Guest House is the perfect choice. From our arrival to our departure, we were treated to a very warm welcome and great hospitality from Caroline and Martin. Other places we have stayed in can be a bit fussy, with rules and regulations, but here... More

The room was very clean and breakfast was really nice, compliments to the chef. Nice breakfast choices. Mornings are greeted with a smile from Caroline the host and attentive to the guest needs. And the home-baked cookies is a 'must try'! A true home - touched bed and breakfast.

Booked room 1 on-line attracted by the slightly quirky look of the building; on arrival it was exactly as we'd hoped. The room is in the roof, reached by a narrow twisting staircase: The steeply sloped ceiling, simple but stylish decor and a shower room you could hold a party in made for an ideal 3 night stay....and so incredibly...

Stayed here for 3 nights and would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Windermere. The room (room 4) was very clean, the service from Caroline was great and the breakfast was lovely with lots of choice. It is approximately a 3 minute walk from the train station. The location was also perfect, being away from the very touristy areas but... More

I booked this B&B online at the last minute and had no issues at all with the booking. The property is in a great location at the top of the village, a very short walk to the train/bus station and only about 20 minutes walk to the lake. Caroline (the owner) was friendly and incredibly helpful during my stay. The... More

We stayed in room 10, which is a lovely room, very clean and cosy. It only has a tiny shower and toilet room though, which is next to the bed, with no sink in, for hygiene reasons this put me off a bit as you can't wash your hands after going to the loo, you have to leave the room... More

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 5 night stay in Windermere at Rockside and we stayed in Room 2, which was a suite. The added lounge area to the room was great, especially for quite a long stay as we had much more space. We absolutely loved the home made goodies in the reception every day, and... More

Thoroughly enjoyable stay. Ideal central location. A little dated, but clean rooms, very good breakfast and friendly patrons. Although fronting a busy road, the room had secondary glazing so traffic noise was not noticeable. Would not hesitate to book here again.

Great location,away from the tacky side of Windemere. The breakfast was the best we have ever had in any hotel or B and B. Nice touches with home made produce. Easy walking distance to good local bars and restaurants. The decor is a little bit tired and perhaps not as clean as one would expect for a 4 * but... More
