One of those homely and very comfortable B&Bs. Very clean and comfortable with a breakfast menu to die for. Gary and Sheena were the perfect hosts. Bonus points for the little touches including home made cake in the room and biscuits to take on the journey home. View over the garden with bantam hens scratching about. Close to the Lymington...

Accommodated us at very short notice & went way over and above reasonable expectations! Great place, great hosts & a superb breakfast too. I particularly liked the little design details in the decor that really show that the owners are passionate about the place & this comes across in their service & the overall experience as a guest. Cant fault...

We were impressed with this lovely cottage, Gary and Sheena were great hosts providing delicious breakfast and freshly made cake to the bedroom! The room was spacious and comfortable, and the property was only about a 4 minute walk to the sea front and about a 5-10 minute drive to the needles. We couldn't have asked for a better place...

Had a few days away and as we had stayed here previously we booked again and loved our visit. The breakfasts are amazing, with local products and a great range to choose. Rooms were clean, spacious and well decorated.

I stayed there for one night with my wife and 2 sons. Rooms were excellent, comfortable and clean. We had a lovely breakfast, with lots of homemade / local food and the service was very friendly. We will definitely book here again in the future.

My husband and I stayed at Rockstone Cottage for a weekend in October. Our bedroom was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We found slices of cake waiting for us each afternoon and we're given homemade biscuits for the journey home. Breakfast was delicious and included healthy options like Bircher muesli and fruit salad. The only minor gripe is that breakfast...

I had booked Rockstone Cottage for a weekend's walking with a friend. We had previously been staying at another, excellent B&B in Yarmouth which, unfortunately, has closed due to retirement and I had thought this would be difficult to beat- but we weren't disappointed. The location is perfect for a swim - 5 minutes walk from the beach. Sheena and...

Very nice b&b beautifully clean. Breakfasts were great with plenty of choice. Gary & Sheena are very friendly & welcoming. In the summer the position would be wonderful with just a short stroll to beach and pub. But unfortunatly they closed for the winter this weekend so a bit of a trip to find places to eat.

Everything was a very high standard wright down to the bed and bedding. A good breakfast with a wide menu along with good ingredients. The owners were very friendly and helpful. A niece touch was the cake in our room each afternoon.
