The suite is part of the bigger Sawrey Knott, a beautiful residence with a large garden and broad view.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Please note that we prefer to let The Rockery Suite for full weeks during high and mid season, so at these times of year short breaks will only be available a week or so in advance.

Please also note that the nightly charge varies between £53 - £87 depending on when and for how long you wish to book the apartment.

We let The Rockery Suite through an excellent Ambleside-based agency called Heart Of The Lakes (H.O.T.L.) They charge a £23 booking fee, so they add this on to any bookings made through them. H.O.T.L. also hold an up-to-date bookings calendar. So you can check availability either on this FlipKey website or via H.O.T.L. H.O.T.L's contact details for The Rockery Suite are +44 15394 32321 and: http://www.heartofthelakes.co.uk/the_rockery_suite_e.html

You can also contact us directly of course. We will be pleased to help with any enquiries.
