Me and my husband stayed here for a small honeymoon in the UK. The B&B is well situated and the owners were very welcoming. It was recommended by my parents who also stayed here last year. I am vegetarian and my husband doesn't eat pork which in some cases means you will only get scrambled eggs on toast as your... More

I only stayed for one night as I was on the island for work - however one night was not enough! I loved it and was beautifully looked after including some wonderful home baked treats! Lovely warm welcome and this will now be my place of choice to stay on all my future work trips.

Rockstone Cottage was very comfortable, very clean and the landlady was very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast set us up for the day with loads of choice. We will be back to Rockstone Cottage on our next visit to the Island.

We had 4 nights in August whilst on the island for a friends family party. The welcome was wonderful. The room was excellent with lots of little extras that were a delight like home made cakes and a lovely little gift on leaving. The wide range of choice at breakfasts was amazing. Always fresh fruit and a special of the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Rockstone Cottage. Lovely, quiet cottage, great breakfast, very close to peaceful beach. Great sausages for breakfast and shortbread to take away. Proper ballsy landlady. Go!

We only stayed one night at the Cottage but we really enjoyed it. The room was very comfortable, welcoming and very clean! We were happy to find some cake in the room to enjoy with a cup of tea upon our arrival! The beach is literally 5 minutes walk from the cottage which is perfect! The only down thing I'll... More

This reviewer booked through a booking agency, which charges us commission. Terms and conditions clearly state that deposits are none- refundable. We advise our guests to take out holiday insurance in case of cancellation or unforseen circumstances. This reviewer choose to change her plans at the last minute for no valid reason. The deposit is a commitment to show faith... More

We stayed 2 nights on the Isle of Wight along with my husband's Dad, in order to attend his sister's funeral. It was a sad reason for traveling to one of the most beautiful and popular destinations in the UK, and a challenge finding accommodation at the peak of the August holiday time, so we were absolutely delighted to find...

Lovely location, nicely decorated rooms and a delicious breakfast make this a great B and B. Freshly baked goods arrived almost daily in our rooms, which was a nice touch. We stayed in room 5 which had a small but nice shower room. As another reviewer mentioned, it's a real shame there is no access to the garden. But there... More
