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.
Take the A39 from Lynton to Porlock, or Porlock to Lynton, depending on whether you are coming or going. Then take the road signposted towards Brendon. This will take you down into the valley. In the village go over the old stone bridge and follow the sign to the pub, 1 mile along the river. If you are coming across the moor take the B3223, between Simonsbath and the A39 the road down to Rockford is signposted.
You can check in from 13:00. You need to check out by 10:00.
