Everything about this place is wonderful. On arrival, we were greeted by one of the hosts Martin, who helped us carry our bags to the house. He then gave us a thorough tour of the property and garden, accompanied with very friendly and witty banter! The location is perfect for a weekend break. There are pubs within walking distance and...

My husband and I recently stayed for a few days to celebrate our Silver Anniversary and we could not recommend Rockfield House highly enough. Kate and Martin are excellent hosts who made our stay very, very, comfortable and the breakfasts and evening meals were absolutely delicious. The views were absolutely stunning and we will, without doubt, be returning soon.
