The Rockford Inn Hotel in Devon lies in the remote Brendon Valley on Exmoor,
one of the two great National Parks in the South West corner of England. The
17th century Inn is one of the cosiest Devon hotels and is a perfect retreat from
the stresses of modern life.
Its a traditional Exmoor country Inn near the border with Somerset and is
popular with local farmers, ramblers and fishermen alike. We provide simple
B&B accommodation at affordable prices and is a great place to stay for those
wishing to explore the vast open expanses of Exmoor. The dramatic East Lyn
River flows by the property as it carves its way through the wild moors of
Exmoor down to the sea at Lynton and Lynmouth. The fast-flowing river is a
walker's paradise with waterfalls, rocky rapids, house size boulders and deep
green fern-lined pools. The National Trust Footpaths are well maintained as
they parallel the water, through gorges and wooded valleys.
Just 4 miles up river from the seaside towns of Lynton and Lynmouth, The
Rockford Inn Hotel provides comfortable rooms on a bead and breakfast basis
surrounded by some of the UK's most beautiful landscapes. There are amazing
country walks right on our doorstep. Whether it's up on the exposed, treeless
moors, or along the South West Coast Path as it traverses some of England's
highest sea cliffs. There are also many beaches nearby ideal for families with
small children and equally appealing for surfers who flock here for the waves.
The East Lyn River is famed as one of the UK's best salmon and trout river, with
permits to fish available at the bar. During the colder months salmon can be
seen leaping the waterfalls or laying in the deep pools. If you are lucky they
can be seen spawning in pebbly shallows. The gin clear water in the deep pools,
although cold, attracts those who like outdoor natural swimming.
We provide tasty home cooked meals using seasonal foods, local brewed real
ales and feature open log fires and wood burning stoves. We also offer
comfortable accommodation in which to stay, where we offer Bed and
Breakfast, with full or half board an option.
We are close to the seaside towns Lynton and Lynmouth, Porlock and Minehead.
With Barnstaple, Ilfracombe, Saunton Sands, Coombe Martin and Braunton all
within 30 minute drives.
