Rockstone cottage was a perfect B&B. Sheen added lots of thoughtful touches including home made cakes left in our rooms for tea time and a bag of shortbread 'for the journey'. She's such a good cook and was very helpful with suggestions on visits. For example,The Hut restaurant just down the lane was excellent.

very warm friendly welcome, room had every thing you could possibly need. Definately would recommend, excellent breakfast and the home made cakes were a fantastic bonus. Sheena couldnt do enough for us. We were very very comfortable while our husbands had to rough it in a tent at the Scooter Rally.

First visit to the Isle of Wight. We were made very welcome and comfortable by the Landlady at Rockstone Cottage. We had two rooms booked, one for my parents, a superior room (Mother's Birthday) which was fantastic and ours somewhat smaller but both comfortable and clean. The only thing I would say is that the water pressure is low when... More

These people have taken so much trouble in furnishing the place and thinking about their guests. And then they throw in special treats on top of their splendid breakfasts. So much local or home-made produce. So much charm. This is how a B & B should be. You don't need hotels with places like this.

We stayed at Rockstone for 3 nights and it provided us with a perfect base for our stay. The owners made us feel very welcome, are very knowledgable about the area and happy to answer any questions. The breakfast choice is just right and really sets you up for the day. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The... More

Our third stay at Rockstone Cottage, this time in July, was again a special treat. The cottage is very well furnished and carefully and expertly decorated, and it was perfectly clean. The en-suite was well laid out and the shower was very good. The beds were remarkably comfortable and they gave a good night's sleep and the bed linen was... More

My husband and I spent two nights here on a sweltering weekend in July. The B&B is recently redecorated and immaculately clean. Our room (#5) was well sized, quiet and came with comfy linens and fluffy towels. The room managed to stay cool despite the heat of the weekend and no AC due to a nice cross breeze from the... More

We stayed for a longer weekend in May this year and had a lovely stay. Although saying that, it was spoiled by the uncomfortable bed mattress in our room. After three nights we were fairly sleep deprived as the mattress was awfully soft. I understand that this is somewhat personal preference, however I would advise investment into firmer better quality... More
