we really enjoyed our stay at Rockstone Cottage. We were greeted with a warm welcome, breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit and options for the cooked breakfast. There was homemade cake every afternoon. The room was warm and comfortable.

10 days before we were due to go to the Isle of Wight we booked a room of Rockstone cottage. One day later I cancelled the booking online. When I phoned to ask the owner if she would consider refunding the booking she was rude offhand and refused to give any refund and then she hung up on me while... More

A very well positioned B&B just 3 minutes from the beach. Bus service into Yarmouth just up the road and very efficient. Right on the Coastal path for walkers, great location. We had a warm welcome to our luxury room on the top floor. Lots of little details, free wifi, a choice of home made toasted bread with our breakfast... More

Lovely B&B with lots of extra little touches and amazing breakfast. Great location as only a couple of minutes walk from the beach (wonderful sunsets) one way and if like me you don't have a car, the bus stop is only a couple of minutes walk the other way. Loved it and hope to visit and stay again some day.

We stayed 6 nights recently and had a brilliant hol. Hosts very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, modern and comfortable apart from the bed which we found to be a bit too soft for our liking. Yummy homemade cakes in room daily and for trip home. Excellent breakfast everyday in a lovely modern dining room. Beach within... More

We stayed 2 nights on a short break.Sheena & Gary are great hosts & made a memorable stay with their generous hospitality & attention. The bedroom & en-suite were very clean & comfortable & breakfasts were excellent. Sheena's home baked cakes & shortbreads for afternoon tea & the trip home were lovely.

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.
