Warm, cosy and friendly place to stay. Sarah and Catherine really do make you feel so very welcome. We stayed for 2 nights and loved it. The pub is cosy and has a log fire and there is a separate adjoining residents lounge. The bedroom was very comfortable with a comfy bed and really good shower. The food was excellent... More

The Inn is set in a quiet valley next to the East Lyn river. It is so peaceful at night that the only noise is the river. The staff were warm and welcoming and the room clean and comfortable with ensuite bathroom and all the other facilities you would expect. The pub itself is very cosy with a roaring log... More

From fishing rights on the adjacent river, to facilities for walkers' mucky boots, this small, but perfectly formed INN is both functional and charming,Very well equipped rooms, good breakfasting area, welcoming bar with log fire and an acceptable choice of malt whisky. The service is personal, welcoming and unobtrusive. Breakfast was extensive and well cooked, as was the evening meal... More

We only ate at the inn but the reception from the landlady was welcoming and the food was very good. For those real ale drinkers out there, the beer is served straight from the barrels behind the bar and is well kept. If you want to eat here, go early as the kitchen closes just after 8pm in the winter... More

A very beautiful setting, great food, lovely characterful bar, cosy log fires and friendly staff. What could be better? We stayed here for 3 nights on recommendation and were not disappointed. Loved the food, and everything we ate was very good value too. Breakfast is delicious. I guess if someone held a gun to my head and asked what could... More

From the moment me and my boyfriend arrived we were made to feel welcome. Our room was well presented with a lovely view of the river. The owner (unsure of her name) was friendly and helpful and helped us to plan our day out in Exmoor. Great food, a lovely open fire and welcoming atmosphere. I genuinely have nothing negative...

The Rockford Inn is deep in the East Lyn valley on the windy road from Brendon to Lynmouth in the northern heart of Exmoor. You have to struggle to find it down some narrow roads - but once found, you can abandon the car and enter the warm glow of a well run pub with rooms. While the East Lyn... More

I would thoroughly recommend The Rockford Inn. It's nestled away in Exmoor with fantastic forested walks on your doorstep. But for us the most special part of our visit to Exmoor was the welcome we received at the Rockford Inn , the great food we enjoyed by the fire in the evenings, how helpful we found Catherine & Sarah. They... More
