I had to visit lakes district for work so we decided to make it a few days at the lakes instead of a very long distance trip to a single meeting. We found last minute booking and stayed in one of the double rooms on bed-and-breakfast basis. It was a low season so the place wasn't busy with only few... More

The guest house is in a great location, with a few pubs and some nice restaurants nearby. We stayed in Room 10 (one of the suites) which was very spacious and nicely decorated. Caroline and Martin were great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. They also arranged champagne and flowers on my birthday, making the weekend even more special! Would definitely... More

I tried to have something different each morning, omelette, bagel, cooked breakfast, cereals, fruit etc. Two... More

We booked a few nights stay at this B&B, due to its reasonable cost and position in Windermere. A rather handsome but quirky B&B with parking space outside for guests just on the corner of a main road but close to the train station and bus stops and a Booths supermarket nearby is handy. We were met by the owner... More

We stayed here for 2 nights earlier this week and what a find it was! Rockside had everything we needed for our stay in Windermere and more. It's a beautiful well maintained building and in an excellent location. Rockside has parking which is very handy when Windermere is busy. We were warmly welcomed by Caroline who even has home-made cookies... More
