We booked as we had tickets to a concert in Kingskerswell Parish Church. Sadly the concert was postponed at the last minute, but we traveled anyway, and had a fabulous luxury weekend staying at Rock House. This is a beautiful area, and Rock House is simply faultless. Alison and Brian made us very welcome, the breakfasts are divine, the accommodation... More

What a lovely place this is, we enjoyed our stay so much mainly due to the friendly and welcoming hosts Alison and Brian. Breakfast was a delight served in the conservatory overlooking the well stocked and tended gardens, oh and Brian's poached and scrabbled eggs are perfect. Our room was bright airy and very clean and had everything you could... More

Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Great food, a warm welcome and good local advice. What more can one ask for? I was on a short working visit to Newton Abbot and this was an ideal base. There are some excellent places to eat locally in the evening (listed on the guest information sheet)- several within a short walking distance through... More

We were in the area for a family wedding and stayed in the twin room (made up into a giant double) in the main house and my in-laws had the separate suite. Everything was of a very high standard, including the breakfasts, and nothing was too much trouble. We were all made to feel very welcome and Alison's local knowledge... More

Great care is taken to give, the warmest of welcomes, the best breakfast ever, to suit individual requirements and cooked to perfection by Brian. Attention to detail ensured that our stay was comfortable, luxurious and memorable. Alison's advise made it easier for us to get from A to B around the surrounding area during this very busy run up to... More

My friend and I had went to a party in Newton Abbot and needed somewhere to stay, Rock House was perfect. Alison was really welcoming and our twin room with en-suite bathroom was just right. The beds were very comfortable and there was everything we needed. Alison was really helpful with tips on how to get to the party and... More

We were made welcome by Alison from the very start and enjoyed her advice on the area throughout our two day stay. Each morning the breakfasts were prepared to our requirements and was delicious. The bedroom was nice and in particular the bed was very comfortable, however the cavernous walk in wardrobe is accessed via a low doorway so avoid... More

We stayed here back in August for 3 nights. We stayed with family, two couples and a baby. I couldn't fault it. The B&B is set in a lovely little village, with beautiful views from nearly every window. Alison and Brian were lovely hosts and made our stay very enjoyable. Breakfast was cooked to order every morning at a time... More

I have just spent four nights at Rock House as a solo visitor and cannot recommend it highly enough. Everything was a delight, from the warmth of the welcome to the little "extras" that add so much to a stay. Breakfast was delicious - and special mention must be made of the excellent coffee (which, in my experience, is a... More
