The reason my husband and I continue to return to Newport is to stay at Armistead Cottage. This was our 7th stay within the past 6 years. Charles and Romana are two of the kindest, most amazing people we have ever met. Although the drive from our home can range from 7 1/2 to 11 hours, depending on traffic and accidents, it is definitely worth it. Charles and Romana make every trip special! We visited in December and the house was beautifully decorated for the holidays. The breakfasts are scrumptious and keep us full until supper. Romana and Charles always know the perfect places to go. Because of them, our 2 favorite restaurants are in the Newport area. We look forward to returning soon!

My husband and I have been to Newport multiple times. Although we enjoy everything Newport has - the Cliff Walk, mansions, restaurants, etc., the reason we continue to return is to stay at Armistead Cottage. We love it here!! You can feel the warmth each time you enter the house. Charles and Romana make each visit special and give us something that we will never forget - priceless memories! Spending time with them at breakfast is our favorite part of the day. The house is always clean and has many unique pieces. We especially enjoy the carrot museum, Romana's stained glass and shell art. Her creativity is amazing! Her suggestions are always helpful. She offers us ideas to make each trip different. Charles and Romana are two of the kindest people you could ever meet and we look forward to returning to Armistead Cottage soon!

Armistead Cottage B&B was a great find! The hosts and atmosphere were welcoming, the location and parking- easy, breakfasts were delicious and the (Lilac) room was cozy. After busy days of sightseeing this place seemed like going home each evening. Thanks Romana and Charles for the restaurant recommendations!

My wife and I had 2 nights here in September, it is a great base to explore Newport. Our hosts Ramona and Charles made the booking process easy for us and Ramona looked after us while we were there extremely well. They do have a carrot museum there which was really quirky, we too an exhibit from the UK which now has its own place in the B&B We had the lilac room which was spotless, bright and spacious, I'd recommend this room. My only niggle was breakfast, on both days we had muffins and other sweet offerings, we were the only guests and it would have been nice to have been asked what we would like, I asked for toast on the last morning having been given crisp bread the day before. If you want an excellent base to explore beautiful Newport, you won't find much better
