Reviewed March 2, 2012

What a wonderful 3 day stay we had with Gary & Sheena, excellent accommodation, excellent food and excellent company! Wonderful homemade bread,croissants, chocolate brownies served with afternoon tea in the sitting room on arrival. So convenient for beach (3 mins away) ferry and wonderful pubs serving fresh fish. Extremely high standards,maintained throughout.. We WILL return!!

On arrival we was greeted with tea and coffee which was so nice after a long drive. Sheena and Gary showed us up to the room which was spacious and decorated to such a high standard. The bed was amazing as I usually have trouble sleeping in beds not my own I was out like a light after eating all the home made brownies and cookies left in our room and the breakfast in the morning was first class with a huge variety of home made goodies and local produce. The b&b is situated just a short walk from the beach that has amazing sunsets virtually everyday. We spent 3 nights at rockstone cottage and can't wait to plan our next visit to this amazing b&b.

I have to say that this is one of the best B & B's we've stayed in for many years. Sheena & Gary were wonderful hosts and made us so welcome from the beginning until the end of our stay.
Rockstone cottage is situated in a very quiet road with plenty of off road parking and is only a short walk to Beautiful Colwell Bay and its wonderful sandy beach.

Our room (number one) was decorated to the highest standard, had fabulous views over the garden and was sooo comfortable with a huge en-suite and spotlessly clean.

The breakfast's were superb and Sheena your Brownies & cheesecake were to die for !!

Thank you for a wonderful stay, you'll be hard pressed to find a better B&B on the Island than this !!! so much so, we've just booked to stay again next April.

This place is run by a lovely, lovely couple. Thanks to Sheena and Gary we were able to turn a disastrous trip, into a perfect holiday!

Comfortable en-suite bedrooms with everything you will need - tea&coffee, hairdryer, toiletries, etc.

In case you travel by bus, there is a stop close by - about 3/4 minute walk.
