Rocklyn Cottage is a self catering cottage situated on the approach road to Appuldurcombe House (which is managed by English Heritage). Appuldurcombe Road is a quiet country lane which forms part of the Sunshine Trail, a Mecca for walkers and cyclists alike, which leads up onto Appuldurcombe and Rew Downs, an ideal location for dog walkers.

The cottage is of modern construction, thereby complying with current building regulations, but is partially constructed from stone work which formed part of the Old School House previously on this site, which gives it a special atmosphere.

If you are walking there is a footpath leading from alongside the bridge to the start of the track but if you are on a bike you must cross the bridge and follow the cycle path signs. Once you are on the track it is clearly signposted all the way to Shanklin. The track runs along the old railway line and the banks on either side are lined with lush vegetation.
