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.
