We stayed here for 3 nights last week and couldn't fault it, nice room with very comfortable bed. Bedroom has a great tourist information book which the owners had put together full of walks and local restaurants. Breakfast was good lots on offer and Caroline was helpful and very accommodating.

Will recommend and would definitely stay again!!

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 different. Home-made biscuits and chocloates were a nice touch and when Caroline saw that we had a packet of biscuits in our room she put them into a containter to keep them fresh for us. We would definitely rebook if we come back to the Lakes again.

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.

Room Tip: Away from main road if you have the choice.

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 mile from the lake and just a few minutes' walk from some excellent restaurants. Rooms a touch on the small side (it is an older house), but very comfortable. Breakfast magnificent with the kind of choice you would expect from a larger hotel.

Recommended.

We stayed 2 nights in august at the very peak of the season. We were always greeted with a friendly smile and were made to feel extremely welcome by Caroline and Martin. 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 was just the right portion size and made with very high quality ingredients. All in all, very highly recommended and would gladly go again.

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 and fish and chip shop :-). The areas brilliant overall as its a nice 45 minute walk to the nearest lake but on the way theres some stunning views. We stayed 2 nights and it was only £130 including a tasty breakfast (the banana bread was the best!!). We had a lovely room but i must admit we was shocked at the size of it first time round but we got used to it and it was very homely. Caroline is such a lovely person and it seems like she never stops as shes there for you at anytime, although we didnt see much of Martin but i suppose he may of been busy at the times we walked though. It was very clean in our room and the bed was more comfortable than our own bed! We have both agreed my partner and I that when we next visit The Lake District it will be Rockside Guest House where we'll be staying. Thank you both Caroline & Martin for a lovely welcoming stay.
