We found our room cosy, comfortable, clean and tidy. Last but not least the owners are really kind and helpful! In addition a perfect stay if you are in the footsteps of Romantic poets and if...

Me and my partner stayed in the Rockside Guest House for 4 days towards the end of August. I will essentially be repeating other reviews, but if you are thinking of booking don't hesitate we had a very enjoyable stay. Firstly I think this guest house is superb value for money. We paid £90 per night in peak season for...

Our room was tastefully and comfortably furnished with all the amenities one could wish for. The bed was comfortable and the room and en-suite bathroom were spotless. Breakfast was a most pleasant experience. Fresh...

Rockside Guest House was my number one place to stay in the Lake District area this summer after I stayed here once before 7 years ago! Just like then, I loved the friendliness of the owners, the excellent location (good for a walk down to the lake, but also great for a drive up to other areas of the Lake...

We found Rockside after being cancelled by another hotel. Caroline has a warm, friendly approach but remaining very professional. The room was spotless & tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were delicious all homemade with a good variety. We will be returning & have told our boatie friends to look it up.

We hadn't been to the Lake District before, we only wanted a short break and we didn't want to use the car. We weren't convinced it would be possible to enjoy the Lake District using public transport.Well how wrong could we be? I booked Rockside because it was near to the train station and local busses and had excellent reviews...

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....

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...
