This is a fantastic guesthouse and worth every bit of its 4 star status. We received a warm and friendly greeting and made to feel very welcome. The house is very clean and facilities exceeded our expectations. The food is of an extremely high standard and I can honestly say, you wont find a better choice or quality in most...

We stopped at the Rockside Guest House for the final two nights of our trip to the Lakes and we're so very glad we did. Caroline and Martin haven't just made a guest house that's welcoming, clean and comfortable, they've added all sorts of personal touches that really separate it from the other lodgings we stayed at. There were freshly...

Spent a lovely weekend at this guest house with my husband. The modern rooms rival many found in 4* hotels and are spotlessly clean with toiletries, tea/coffee etc. Very comfortable bed too. Lots of attention to detail at this B&B. Little things do matter and they are really appreciated. I challenge anyone to find fault with breakfast - lots of...

Five of us stayed here for 3 nights. Cannot fault this establishment...comfortable beds, clean, modern bathrooms, and the breakfasts were fantastic: lots of choices from the full English to pancakes, waffles and Eggs Benedict. Cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt and great coffee. Caroline is a wonderful hostess. It's a 2 minute walk to the Windermere shops and about a 20 minute...

My husband and I were very pleased with the very clean, comfortable accomodation. Caroline was very friendly and the home made marmalade was absolutely delicious. The selection of fresh fruit, homemade yoghurt and museli was a nice start before a hearty breakfast. Peaceful location and a walk from the station. Highly recommended.

My wife and just I spent the weekend at Rockside and it was brilliant. Caroline was friendly, engaging and accoomodating. Fantastic breakfast - the bacon and sausage were especially good. I'm not a marmalde man but I'd read the reviews so I tried it. To be honest it was more like orange jam than marmalde but not being a marmalde...

Exceptionally friendly and clean guest house with a great breakfast. Rooms well equipped with modern & new fixture & fittings. We stayed in room 2, a small suite, which was well worth the extra money. Caroline, the proprietor, was very friendly & gave us some great advice on local attractions. There was a vast array of food to choose from...

Myself and my fiancé Paul stayed here for 5 nights last week in room 2 (suite). The warm welcome from Caroline is like no other.
