It is a a great place to return to after a day's walking - there are little home baked treats to try in reception - the room was recently decorated and comfortable - the room was quiet at night - and close to lots of places to eat. The breakfasts were...

We booked last minute for an Easter Break and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Took the last room in the guest house, room 4, although small it was very comfortable and had everything you needed. This is the first holiday we had to get up for breakfast every day, this wasn't to be missed, first class food...

My boyfriend and I had a five star stay here. We stayed in Room 6. It faced a road but was quiet in the night. The room was spotless and the shower was hot and spacious.

Perfect for 'foodies' Breakfast is really fantastic, home made yoghurt, with special mixed muesli, lovely fresh fruit, home made marmalade and compote. And the banana bread is to die for. The home baking really is wonderful. Home made chocolate hob-nobs were left out for us to help ourselves to, it really was a nice touch. The cooked breakfast's all made...

There are so many places to stay in the lakes, it makes it very hard to choose which one. Having been let down by another BnB (see below), we searched and loved the sound of Rockside, the biggest enticement was the home baking. This can not be underestimated, what more could you ask for than home made biccies/cookies on your...
