From receiving my first phone call to arrange storage of my mountain bike at the B&B to saying our fair-wells, I was very impressed with both the hospitality and service that I was shown. Beautiful location, great room, even more impressive was the breakfast and biscuits :-) It was a delight to meet the owners and I will be certain... More

Can't really fault the Rockside, a warm and friendly reception. The room was very clean and a good size. As with all the other reviews, the breakfast is fantastic! So much to choose from and it was very tasty. Location is perfect, close to several bars/restaurants and about 10-15 minute walk to lake Windermere. Windermere itself is a really nice... More

This was our 4th visit to Rockside - perfect location for us and had another lovely stay in room 2! Really enjoyed the breakfast and appreciated all the homemade goodies, and the biscuits (especially the jammie dodgers) - delicious! Thank you Caroline and Martin, we will be back next year.

Have just returned from a week's stay at The Rockside Guest House. This was our first stay here & it was lovely. Stayed in room 4 as this is the only room with a bath, & the bathroom is a very good size. The room itself is a good size & is very quiet. Loved the quirkiness of Rockside -... More

The stay was good, very cute and quirky room, but the bathroom was just too small. The breakfast was just superb.The location is good, specially for the once who plan to use public transport. Its from a walking distance to bowness , railway station and restaurants.

Another warm welcome here which is our 3rd visit. A lovely quirky B&B always with slices of cake, shortbread, mints etc as you come and go. THE BED AND MATTRESS is so amazingly comfortable which I have found out came from 'Time4Sleep' and is where ours is next coming from! THE BREAKFAST is amazing and a lot of it is... More

This is our second visit to the Rockside, and I must say, it is as great as ever. You will not find a place in Windermere that offers the same levels of hospitality for the price. The breakfast, the home made cookies, the cleanliness.. you name it!! Its 10/10!

We have just (unfortunately) finished our very first stay in lake district. Extremely pleased with our choice of accommodation. Pretty, little guesthouse with cosy rooms and great breakfast. Personal touches of the owners were visible everywhere - home baked cookies and cakes were different everyday. We even got chocolate bunnies on Sunday! Thank you for looking after us

We booked this accommodation after reading the reviews on here and can say we weren't disappointed. It is a lovely place with crazy staircases, welcoming hosts, tasty breakfast and delicious cakes and biscuits available daily in the foyer. It is a nice location to explore the lakes by car or foot and would highly recommend.
