We stayed for a longer weekend in May this year and had a lovely stay. Although saying that, it was spoiled by the uncomfortable bed mattress in our room. After three nights we were fairly sleep deprived as the mattress was awfully soft. I understand that this is somewhat personal preference, however I would advise investment into firmer better quality mattresses.
Other than this, the whole place is lovely. Well decorated and as all reviewers point out, the breakfast is second to none. I can say that they do serve the best breakfast ever! Selection is great and the home-made touches are wonderful.
One point which I personally appreciated was the amazing quality of bed linen. Quality and cleanliness rivals the best hotels we ever stayed in.
Rockstone Cottage is a great B&B but I feel you have to consider your priorities. It worked for us as the weather was beautiful and hence we spent all our time on the beach. There is no common lounge/sitting room nor access to the garden. Parking and walking distance to the beach are a huge plus.
