Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 16, 2013

I would recommend Rockside Guest House to anyone, Caroline and Martin were very welcoming, the room was clean and very well decorated. a comfy bed, a lovely breakfast. Close proximity to the train station, and just a short walk to Windermere and Bowness. We will definitely visit again.

Just returned from a stay at The Rockside, It was everything and more than other reviews have said. 100% value for money, clean comfy beds, fab breakfast, lovely people, each room individually decorated. We will definitely stay there again, the only thing I would say is if you struggle with steep stairs then make sure you get a low level room cos the stairs could be a bit of a hike for older people. Apart from that we couldn't fault it. Well done The Rockside see you soon

Room Tip: The attic room was very quiet

I have just returned from a wonderful weekend stay at Rockside Guest House. The house is traditional and picturesque. The interior and rooms have been decorated tastefully in a modern style and are very homely. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable and the bathroom was large and looked newly decorated. The breakfast menu was varied and the food was absolutely delicious. Caroline was very hospitable and made us feel welcome. Rockside is in a great location for Windermere and is a pleasant 10 min walk to Bowness. Will definitely be returning to Rockside and would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Windermere .

Rockside Guest House is excellent. The room was a decent size, furnished tastefully in a modern style. The ensuite shower room was similarly of a decent size. Both bedroom and shower room looked as though they had been redecorated recently. Breakfast was superb - a spacious breakfast room, with a wide range of local produce, prepared to order, and very well cooked indeed. Caroline was a friendly and attentive host. A nice touch - homemade shortbread to welcome guests back in the evening! Overall, very good value for money and strongly recommended.

We had a lovely stay here; the room (no. 7) was spotless and very homely with everything you need.
The bed was so comfy i wanted to take it home with me!
The breakfast was fab, and the owners were very welcoming.
In fact there was a homely feel to Rockside the minute we walked through the door.
The location is great, the Orrest Head walk is just behind with amazing views when you get to the top!
I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this fab B&B!

Excellent guest house. We stayed for two nights and can only say everything was first class. Caroline was very nice and provided us with a superb english breakfast, there was also a variety of many healthy alternatives of home made jams preserves and even cereals. We would not hesitate to stay again. Many thanks Linda & Mike (Liverpool)
