Had a very comfortable stay here last week. We booked the ‘Owl’s Roost’ room which had a large comfortable bed and huge bathroom with super views towards the Black Mountains. We were well looked after by Sue and Chris, a sociable couple with a great collection of books and magazines to browse through. We had a delicious evening meal on... More

I spotted a small article in the Telegraph last year which said that Chris was a keen and very knowledgeable bird man and that he would take guests on a Dawn Chorus morning so we booked a weekend in Rock Cottage. If you have never been up especially for a Dawn Chorus I urge you to do it at least... More

Take a detailed map with you to get to this gem of a B&B; it's almost all single track although Rock Road itself is on the satnav; most of the surrounding roads are unnamed. The owners are friendly and very helpful, our room (Owls Roost) was spotless and comfortable, breakfast is generous. Good recommendations for local restaurants and best of... More

A warm welcome to a very clean and comfortable stay. The location was close to Abbey Dore for a choral concert and there are nice walks in the surrounding hills. A very relaxing location and it was a delight to have complete silence in the evenings. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms are well appointed. The breakfast is... More

Fabulous B & B close to the Black Mountains. Warm welcome from the proprieters, Chris and Sue, who have a lovely cottage with a charming garden and orchard which is used to make the home made jams and marmalades on the breakfast table The breakfast is quite simply the best we have had, not just at a B &B but...

It was like arriving at a friend's house when we came in from the dark and cold after an awful Friday journey. Everywhere was warm and there was a delicious smell of cooking, which turned out to be the biggest dinner we have had in years. Sue and Chris are great company and look after you really well. Breakfasts were... More

We recently returned to Rock Cottage for one night after touring around Wales. We should have booked a week! Friendly but sensitive hosts who really welcome you. Log fires in a low beamed lounge. Lots of variety for breakfast and as much conversation as you want. The excellent reviews are not over the top at all. My best B&B ever.

If you want to get away from the stresses & strains of modern life this is the one. I was a first-time b&b-er, on my own, never been to the area. No problem! The Robinson double-act are naturals at this game - unbelievably welcoming, warm, friendly and helpful; taking nothing away from outstanding catering and housekeeping. Busybody Sue DOES DETAIL...

I recently stayed for a week with Sue and Chris whilst attending a choral course nearby at Abbey Dore. This was rather intensive, and therefore I was not at Rock Cottage very much. But when I did return, sometimes late in the evening, they would invite me for a drink and chat as if I was an old friend of... More

We have just spent a wonderful weekend at Rock Cottage where we found Sue and Chris extremely welcoming. Rock cottage is really a remote haven. I had the best night sleep I have had in ages in total peace and tranquility. If you are looking for a weekend away from it all in great company, then this is the place... More
