We stayed 2 nights in the Knight's Rest during our cycle holiday. We really enjoyed our stay there. The Guesthouse is owned by a very lovely couple. The room is very cosy and clean with everything you need. Breakfast is delicous and there is free bottled / drinking water in the main area. We could store our bikes safely in... More

The single room that I had was very unique to say the least (please do not change the lay out) . The breakfast has to be the best on the Island it... More

My wife and I stayed at Knight's Rest earlier this month whilst visiting her family on the island. I'd been sleeping badly at home but had three nights of comfortable sleeping at Knight's Rest. "Come to Knight's Rest and have a good Night's Rest" they should say! Anyway, witty jokes aside, my wife and I had a very comfortable stay... More

We were greeted by a lovely couple who welcomed us with open arms. The room was very nice to sleep in with a television and a nice shower space too. The food was cooked fresh and they paid great attention to my partner and my dietary requirements. The only issue was the bed was a bit stiff, otherwise a truly... More

Eight weary cyclists arrived after 62km clockwise from Yarmouth to the warmest of welcomes from the lovely couple who own the Knights Rest. The rooms were full of character and beautifully clean & fresh. Lots of thoughtful touches made our visit very enjoyable and restful indeed. The breakfast was delicious. Everything cooked to perfection and of a really high standard.... More
