Rooms lovey decorated & loved the individually names rooms with their own touches. Breakfast was lovely & I now have a man obsessed with granola & yoghurt & honey for breakfast (not as good as yours of course sheena ;-)) Very cosy & located in a lovely surround.

Rockstone Cottage was one of the best B&B’s I’ve stayed in. Great location a few minutes’ walk from the beach. Sheena was very welcoming on arrival and we loved the cakes waiting for us when we got shown to our room. Room was beautifully furnished and had everything you could want (&more!). Bed was particularly comfortable & lovely view out...

Rockstone cottage was very clean and comfortable and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent with a good variety on the menu. We saw more of Sheena than Gary and she was very sociable and always bright and cheerful in the morning. The cakes that were left for us in the bedroom each day were delicious

We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience of the Isle of Wight and could not have chosen a better 'B&B' than Rockstone to stay at - from the location near the beach, the very warm welcome, to the freshly baked cakes left for us each day, and the freshly baked bread with our fantastic breakfast each day. It was truly a...

My friend and I stayed at Rockstone Cottage as part of a memory lane trip as we both went to school on the Isle of Wight . We both found it very comfortable, wonderful surroundings as a stones throw from the beach. The rooms were beautifully decorated, although the shower was not as powerful as I would like. The breakfasts...

Since you brought the subject up I will state the facts. Our check-in times are 3.00pm to 6.30pm unless by "PRIOR ARRANGEMENT" (you were e-mailed twice to this effect) By your own admission you booked the 8.20pm ferry which at the earliest you would have got here at 10.00pm (you arrived at 10.30pm) a full 4 hours after check-in.

We were recomended this B&B for a short stay in the Freshwater area. The recommendation turned out to be very well founded. Not only was the accomodation very comfortable, but the breakfast was very much tasty and well presented. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.
