Just 4 miles up river from Lynton and Lynmouth The Rockford one of England s finest Inns lies in the scenic Brendon Valley and is a great place to stay for those wishing to explore the vast open expanses of Exmoor National Park in North Devon. One of the favourite small hotels in Devon The Rockford is part of a small hamlet hidden away deep in the heart of the most picturesque countryside. The 17th century pub lies at the foot of a gorge overlooking the dramatic East Lyn River as it carves it s way through the wild Devon moors down to the sea at Lynmouth. Fantastic riverside walks abound along National Trust footpaths which take you through woods past waterfalls rocky rapids and deep dark salmon-filled pools lined by lush green ferns and mosses. On top over the rugged windswept moors the wild Exmoor Ponies can be found along with cattle and sheep that roam grazing freely. Down below in the valleys deer badger kingfisher and otter may be seen by those lucky and stealthy enough. You can sit by our riverside patio and enjoy a pint as you watch herons stalking 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.
