Lovely bed and breakfast located at a stone throw from Windermere train station, which is handy if you will be exploring the Lake district by bus, as all the buses stop there. More than a room it felt like a comfy and cozy mini apartment under the roof. It was all around excellent: our hosts, the delicious breakfasts, the decor...

Another big plus is Rockside has it's own parking which is a big advantage in this location. Another great thing is everything you would need, cafes, bars, shops, busses. trains etc are all...

Stayed here for two nights after booking last minute, Caroline and Martin really are excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in room 4 which was spotlessly clean and as a bonus had a large bathroom and a corner view down towards the high street.
