We where due to fly out to Barcelona on Friday but due to the tragic events, we decided against going and instead looked at booking in Bowness or Windermere. We have visited this area many times and know how hard it is to find any vacancies last minute. Anyway, there was one room left at Rockside and after reading some reviews we booked it. On arrival we were greeted warmly by Caroline and shown to our lovely en-suite room. After having a mooch around town we went back and had a slice of the most fantastic battenburg which Caroline and her husband Martin provide for guests in the reception area. We got up for breakfast on Saturday after a great night's kip, the bed was so comfy and its such a quiet little place. You get a really good choice for breakfast, fresh juices and fruit, homemade granola and museli then a selection of hot food from local sources (great back bacon and sausages) and also American style waffles with maple bacon, blueberry pancakes, smokes salmon bagels and free range eggs cooked however you would like them. Finish off with the not to be missed honemade marmalade and jams.....not good if your trying to diet! Think I've put half a stone on in 3 days but enjoyed doing it!! Make sure you bring some home, they make great gifts too. In short, we are really glad we found this little gem, had 3 great nights sleep and were made to feel so welcome. We will be back for the Christmas markets so will be booking early! A big thank you to Caroline and Martin.
