We had a few days break at the Rockford Inn recently, on the recommendation of my sister who had stayed a few weeks before. I know she is hard to please so we thought it must be good. We were not disappointed! The owners were away on holiday so relief managers, Tom and Sarah were looking after things, along with... More

We stayed here for walking break on Exmoor and the North Devon coast, and it was ideal. A good room (ours was Room One at the front), plenty of hot water, good draught beer and good food (good quantities too). It was being run by a relief manager and his wife when we stayed. They did an excellent job and... More

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at the Rockford Inn, a 17th century inn with bags of character in a magical location. The accommodation, the food, the staff, the owners and the beer are fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for Cathryn and Sarah and their attentive friendly staff. We don't usually revisit places but this is the... More

From the moment we stepped through the door we were made to feel welcome. Catherine welcomed us and showed us to our room,I think we may have had the best room as it overlooked the fast flowing and beautiful river across the road (we were delighted to see Dippers hopping and bouncing from stone to stone and under the water)-...

Reading all the recent reviews of The Rockford Inn, I can say that I totally agree with all the positive reviews. I just stayed for one night on a brief driving tour of the West Country. The hospitality from the ladies running the place made me immediately feel at ease, and the pressures, tension and stress of some aspects of... More

We booked a late stay and spent one night , amazing location room overlooked the river in a quiet village at the end of a long country road, peace and quiet wih an amazing walk through the woods. The food was excellent with great choice and value. going back in the Spring to see the snowdrops. Hospitality first class

We spent a fantastic couple of nights at this inn in October and what a treat! Wonderful hospitality from start to finish - comfortable and clean bedrooms, excellent local ales, great food and a beautiful setting. We would highly recommend and will definitely be back.
