Built in 1847 from Lakeland stone, Rockside is a quirky guesthouse full of character and charm. Owner managed by Martin & Caroline, Rockside has been sympathetically modernised to provide you with all your modern day comforts while still retaining many of its original features.
Our en suite rooms are of different shapes and sizes and have all been individually styled to give them their own unique character. Passageways and short flights of stairs head off in different directions and make Rockside a fascinating house to explore.
Rockside Guest House is situated at the head of Windermere village. Less than 2 minutes walk to the train and bus station. Windermere’s many restaurants, pubs and shops are virtually on our front door and with Bowness and Lake Windermere a short 20-minute walk away, Rockside’s location is ideal.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and at Rockside we give it the justice it deserves. We offer a range of options to cater for all tastes, from our substantial Cumbrian full breakfast to lighter bites and vegetarian alternatives. All prepared using quality local produce and served with our delicious home-made marmalade and jams.
Please note we are unable to accept babies; or children under the age of 14.
