I stayed here for just one night with my Mum and baby, we really enjoyed our stay. The location was very convenient for our purposes and we had a fabulous big room with a beautiful ensuite, very tastefully decorated and with everything we needed. We enjoyed our breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the pretty garden. With a warm welcome and... More

Rock House is conveniently located in reach of many attractions. Alison & Brian provide a hospitable welcome, comfortable rooms, local info and delicious breakfasts (Brian's omelettes are heavenly!). We'll recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

A warm welcome, great service, comfortable bed and cosy room. An excellent breakfast added to the personal touches that included interesting and practical information about the area and very good contacts. Brian's beautiful pencil drawings are a delight to look at. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The upstairs room in the newly renovated wing was luxurious and warm, with a particularly comfortable bed. Good breakfast, the full cooked is recommended for those with a lot of walking to do. Even free wifi if you stand in the right spot to get through the lovely thick stone walls.

We stayed here with our baby daughter and had a really lovely break. We were made to feel very welcome. The breakfast was lovely and the room was extremely comfortable, clean and well maintained. I would thoroughly recommend this B&B and would definately stay again.

We have just returned from a week in the Rock House Cottage. We felt very much at home. It was well equipped, the bed was very comfortable and there was a lovely private garden. The lounge is upstairs and is very large and has good views over the garden and countryside. The cottage is well positioned to be able to... More

We've stayed at this lovely B&B several times and hope to be back again! It is simply lovely and Alison is a wonderful host. Her husband Brian is the master of a great breakfast---do ask for the omelette---it's devine. You will love the immaculate accomodations and beautiful gardens. And, an added treat is the gallery of amazing pencil drawings by... More

I have stayed at this B&B on three occasions now and each time I have been even more impressed by accommodation and courteous service provided by Alison. On my last visit she gave me viewing of the cottage accommodation which is very inviting and this has enticed me to bring my wife for a summer break, when normally we seek... More

I booked a room for a friend of my mother in November over the phone with a deposit of £20. She only stayed the one night and reported to me that she very much enjoyed the experience and breakfast. The establishment certainly looked lovely from the outside when I picked her up. I was later refunded the deposit but I... More
