We stayed at the Rockside Guest House for 2 nights. On our arrival we received a very warm welcome from Caroline. The room we stayed in was great, and there was plenty of choice for breakfast. The home made biscuits and banana bread added more of a personal touch, and tasted nice too (you must try Carolines home made jam...

We've just returned from a 5 night break at Rockside. The room was lovely and clean and the bed was comfortable with good quality linen and towels (which were changed daily). Caroline was great and we couldn't fault the breakfasts. Traditional breakfasts suited us just fine but there was a huge range of options if you wanted something a bit...

Nice, welcoming hosts, good-sized room. Breakfast was plenty - including tea - very important! Our room was on the main road but the double-glazing blocks any traffic noise. Reasonable price for the area and I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.

Four days at Rockside last week - my wife and I - with two friends from Switzerland for part of the time. A very warm welcome, various nice touches - from home baked cookies in the entrance hall to home made marmalade to take home. Great location close to the railway station at the top of Windermere - about a...

The room was furnished to a high standard and the homemade biscuits on delivery was a very nice touch. We would recommend the full English breakfast because it...

I booked this around a month before my partners 21st birthday and i was quite sceptical about the location, area and costs to get there as me or my partner had never been anywhere near windermere. I say this with great confidence that the location is excellent as its right by the train station, bus stops and also a fish...

Stayed at Rockside looking for a quiet break for myself and my boyfriend. Received a wonderful welcome from Caroline, and the room was nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable. Everything was thought of, little things that make the difference - things like remembering to put a bottle opener in room, fresh cookies every day (there really were!) and properly fresh...
