The staff at this place where wonderful, the food was home cooked and amazing and the entire trip was just bliss :) Beautiful scenery definitely take walking boots! Me and my mum have been to this part of Devon before and visited watersmeat but never stayed here before, would definitely recommended and come back!

Six of us came for lunch and the food was great. It is simple but really well executed. Two had steak and ale pie and chips and petits pois. The petits pois were good quality, not the usual pub bullets. Chunks and chunks of steak in the pie in a delicious gravy. Two had ham egg and chips, one a... More

We came to stay for one night to spend some quality time together. The hotel was lovely and in a gorgeous location, the room was clean and cosy and the staff were all extremely helpful. The food was gorgeous and there was a very good menu choice. Highly recommend.

We stayed here for 2 nights just for a quick break away from some serious stress - and it was lovely! We had a very nice room ( Room 1 ) with a calm contemporary look and very stylish bathroom. Nice big towels, and great selection of teas and coffees in the room as well as bottles of water every... More

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)-...
