Area The village of Lindale is in the Lake District National Park, a few miles from Grange-over-Sands. Sitting on the slopes of Hampsfield Fell, Grange has a true lakeland feel with narrow streets, stone dwellings, two pubs and a golf course. Cartmel, with its sticky toffee pudding, famous horse race meetings, a 12th century priory, and gourmet restaurants is a 10 minute drive away from Grange. Arnside is also worth a visit. Just a short drive away is Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere, and Hawkshead - which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many. The area is perfect for walking and cycling for people of all abilities, with Sustrans cycleways and Grizedale Mountain Bike trails nearby. Take a stroll along the promenade at Grange-over-Sands or explore the fells. Amidst the charm of the southern lakes, this village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.

We really enjoyed our stay.. The group was big but we never felt in each others’ way. Great location for exploring the Lakes. The facilities were excellent and everything worked.
A great family holiday.. We were 7 adults and 3 children, aged between 2 to 60. the place was perfect, loads of space, great games room. A beautiful quiet area but within easy driving distance of southern lakes. no mobile phone signal which wasn't a problem, walks from the door. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
EVerything we wanted from our Holiday was available in Rockwood.. Amazing Property,
The house was much more than we expected.. It was beautiful and very spacious. We have eight adults in the house and never once did we feel crowded. We would definately look to book again.
Lovely house ideal for families.. The garden was perfect for energetic children. The information said that a cot was available but it was only a travel cot with a very thin hard mattress & this should be made clear. There is no signal for mobile phones & no landline & wi fi is weak. Apart from that the house is great.
WiFi was lacking, very hit and miss.. Mobile signal was absent, therefore you had to walk some distance from the property to get a decent signal.
Cottage ideal for my family of 10 -incl 4 children ! Location great - although directions a little vague - house plenty large enough and facilities ideal, sleeping arrangements couldn't have been better, plenty space for children to play (garden casual enough for them not to upset anyone). Nice touch from owner leaving us bottle wine and large fresh loaf on arrival. Will certainly consider booking Rockwood again - provided owner is happy with how we left it. Thanks all round.
The cottage was excellent, it had everything we needed and more, the welcome pack and guest information were very well thought out and made us feel at home straight away.. The flow of information from Sykes was very useful in our planning and preparation.
An excellent house.. Beautifully equipped and located.
We had a fantastic time! The cottage was amazing...big rooms, massive garden, idyllic location and great facilities. The Internet worked fine and we were able to stream Netflix through the PS4 with no issues.
The downstairs double beds could possibly have had softer mattresses...a few of our party mentioned they didn't sleep too well, but they all still raved about the place and would go back, so clearly it's not a blocker!
The upstairs master room was comfort personified, though...I slept like a log every night!
Thanks to Mal for the wonderful welcome flowers, card and wine too! We will all be coming again!
Really lovely holiday, the pictures don’t do the house justice, all of the double rooms are huge, one we put a single blow up bed in with ease and the other a travel cot.. The kitchen/diner is perfect for large groups with plenty of space for several chefs in the kitchen at one time.
Plenty of bathrooms which are all nicely decorated with modern facilities.
The outside space and garden are lovely.
The parking says for 5 cars but we think that would be a bit of a squeeze. I think 4 packed in is more likely especially for larger estates.
Wouldn’t hesitate to book again.
Approach lane could do with resurfacing but property made up for it,some potholes definitely need filling in.. The owner was very welcoming and attention to detail was excellent.
