Great location, fabulous birdsong.
A bench or seating outside would really add value for guests we thought, there us space... We went out and bought deckchairs, so would recommend you take some. Otherwise everything was lovely. You might also want to take some kitchen bowls for serving food and salad, and a frying pan, as the kitchen is short of these, otherwise highly recommend Rock wood as a fabulous place to stay. We loved it.
Thank you for your kind review. It is much appreciated. To address your comments, we do have a bench outside under normal circumstances but it was being repaired and repainted. We have now put this outside the house again and will be sure to put it back earlier in Spring (after Winter storage) in future. I did go and check the frying pan and there was one in the kitchen cupboard but I have put an extra one in as you suggested. We have also put some extra kitchen bowls in.
Thank you for your suggestions. We find these very helpful as, if we don't know about issues, we are unable to address them. We really do appreciate your comments . Thank you also for leaving the house so tidy and for being such lovely guests.
Great family house
Spacious family house. Comfy beds. Liked the split of the bedrooms, some up, some down - made it possible to split 5 children and get them to sleep quicker.Good sized kitchen. Two kitchens very useful. Children loved the kids den. Only negative was lack of a garden.
Good for a family get together.
Warm and comfortable in a great location.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It's very much appreciated. We very much hope to welcome you back in the future as we very much enjoyed having you as guests.
Good location. Cosy, comfortable. warm & plenty of room. Walks from the door.
We all had an excellent time. Property as described & v.g. value for money.
We arrived for our Xmas break in some awful storm weather but it was lovely to be able to use the log burner and create a cosy atmosphere. A lovely Xmas tree had been decorated to make our Xmas home from home and cooking our Xmas dinner was easy with the extra facilities in the annexe kitchen. We love the large kitchen table for us all to gather round and chat whilst preparing meals etc.
We struggled a little with the TV not being in the main lounge but luckily my son brought a firestick so we were able to view the channels in the main lounge through the wifi. Think the property would benefit from a proper fixed shower in the family bathroom if that is ever a consideration.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Christine was extremely helpful both before and during our holiday and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend for large family groups as there is plenty of room to be together or rooms to be quiet in.
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It is very much appreciated. On the two points that you raised, we are currently looking in to putting a big television on the wall in main lounge and so hopefully this will be resolved before long. We would like to put a separate fixed shower in the family bathroom but we don't have the height to do this but we will continue to see if we can find a solution. There is, however, a shower downstairs but I agree that it would be nice to have one upstairs as well. Thank you once again for your kind comments and for being such wonderful guests. The house was left in an immaculate condition. You were exemplary guests and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Christine
Rockwood proved to be a brilliant choice of location for our large family get-together which included five children from aged 2 to 11. Cars could be forgotten much of the time and our marathon-running son used Silver Howe for his early morning training. Even the shopping was done on foot as the walk into Grasmere is delightful. Allan Bank - National Trust - is an easy walk and the children loved all the Easter activities they put on.
The annexe arrangement was good for the youngest child and her parents. It provided a quiet refuge at bedtime.
The house is well equipped though a good shower in the main bathroom would make a welcome addition. It is set amidst such glorious surroundings that a garden is not missed though another outdoor bench to the right of the front door would help when everyone wants to bask in the sun. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather.
We can thoroughly recommend Rockwood especially for large family gatherings. For us it was the perfect setting and many happy memories were made.
Rockwood ligger i en lugn och sömnig landsväg. Det finns gott om promenader för alla nivåer från dörren inklusive Easedale Tarn, Helm Crag, Greenburn Bottom, Alcock Tarn etc. Det är en kort promenad till honeypot byn Grasmere 0. 5 miles, med sina restauranger, pubar och känd pepparkakaffär. Här hittar du också graven av William Wordsworth och hans hem - Dove stuga. Ta en promenad runt Grasmere Lake och Rydal-vatten eller bara promenera längs den vackra strömmen som passerar genom byn. Ambleside är ca 4 miles away. Windermere ca 8 miles - ta en båttur på sjön!
Pretty Hawkshead (där William Wordsworth åt skolan) är cirka 25 minuters bilresa och leder vidare till Grizedale Forest med massor av utomhusaktiviteter för barn och vuxna. Strax utanför Hawkshead är Hilltop (hemmet till Beatrix Potter). Korsning norrut mot Keswick (ca 20 minuter) över Hellvelyn och Derwent Water är en härlig väg upp i de höga bergen, framför Buttermere. Så mycket att göra, så lite tid!
Mat shopping är enkelt. Du kan gå till den lokala CoOp i byn, med en rimlig mängd grundläggande mat och vin. Det finns en bankomat i Coop. Booths (vid tågstationen) i Windermere erbjuder underbar kvalitet och ett stort utbud av mat och vin. I Ambleside finns det även några livsmedelsaffärer, men inte mycket större än i Grasmere - det finns en liten Tesco Express. Ambleside har bankomater, otaliga utomhusklädbutiker. Du är bortskämd för val i området för restauranger - Jumble Rooms är mycket populärt i Grasmere och det finns indiska, kinesiska och thailändska restauranger i Ambleside. Det finns 3 stora traditionella pubar inom gångavstånd från huset (pub promenadguider finns i huset).
