Accommodation Description:


The Rockford Inn sits beside the East Lyn River as it flows through the beautiful and peaceful Brendon Valley in Exmoor National Park. The rural public house dates back to the 17th century and provides a cosy and convivial atmosphere in which to relax. Its a traditional North Devon country pub popular with local farmers, ramblers and fishermen alike and set in an isolated and remote hamlet.

We offer excellent home cooked seasonal foods, local brewed real ales and comfortable accommodation in which to stay, where we offer full and half board.You can sit by the river, enjoy a pint as you watch herons stalk salmon and trout, as well as the odd unfortunate frog. The sound of rushing water over the rocky rapids provides a tranquility to behold. After we have locked up and the guests retired to bed the only sounds you will hear are the peaceful, tinkling waterfalls and the hooting of owls in the woods.
