Lovely hotel in a lovely location run by lovely people. Stayed for a short relaxing break and it ticked all the boxes with a cosy and comfy room at the top of the stairs and a supply of free homemade irresistible biscuits at the bottom. Breakfast was lovely with extras like the banana loaf setting you up for the day.... More

I booked room number 1 last minute (literally the night before I was due to make the journey to Windermere). It was the last room left, however I am convinced that it must have been waiting for me😉. Please bear in mind that I had no idea what the room was going to look like. To my delight it the... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week. The guest house is very comfortable, the breakfast great with lots of choice and plenty of homemade goodies. The cakes left out everyday were a lovely extra. The guest house is convenient for the station and has parking.

Wonderful Guest House, very friendly, clean and nicely decorated. Our room (No2) was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was great with an excellent choice. I would recommend Rockside to anyone wanting a great base to explore the Lake District.

Rockside is in a perfect position, just a couple of minutes walk to the town centre with all it's restaurants and shops. Caroline and Martin were excellent hosts and the breakfast each morning had a fantastic choice and the food was brilliant. We stayed in suite 2 which had a lounge area, a good sized bedroom with a very comfy... More

(Martin was quick to assist with our luggage.) It was a nice size room and, offered a comfy king bed, an in-room... More

We stayed 4 nights at Rockside, we opted for room 10 so we had an additional lounge area which was perfect in the evenings if it was raining and we wanted to stay in doors. From our arrival to our departure we were looked after by Caroline who was attentative and nothing seemed too much trouble. The room was nicely... More

Great place to visit Lake District area. We stayed four nights in the room 8. Room was charismatic and very clean. Breakfast was great and everything went just as we expected. Location is good and there is nice restaurants in a walking distance.

Rockside was so very easy to find, located on the junction of the ambleside to windermere road with the Bowness road, the house is a beautiful stone building with a very quirky but charming interior with lots of little staircases. We were a little late checking in as we had underestimated the traffic driving down from the Highlands but we... More
