Feedback - Rating 4/5

Very friendly owners Jean and Robert, lovely clean house, in lovely little village. The only negative thing to say is, with the windows open at night because it was really warm weather, is the noise of the traffic, and the shower was not powerful, and the temperature was a bit temperamental.


The road/street through our village is rural. Generally there is very little traffic at night though recently there has been filming at night for a feature film, this is beyond our control. Sorry it is not a power shower!

Rockwood B and B - Rating 4/5

Lovely view of the dales from my window. The room was clean to a level one would expect to find at any corporate chain hotels. The owners were very friendly and I would have tried the full English breakfast if I had more time, as this time was a business trip for me. My only tiny reservation was that there wasn't any complimentary soap in the bathroom. I would certainly stay again as I want to try the breakfast next time.Can only give 4 stars prior to having breakfast next time. Great location for a short walking holiday. There is also an attractive pub opposite and 23 hours free parking opposite the B and B.


Apologies for lack of soap. Oversight on our part - you should have mentioned it - we normally provide.
