LYNTON B&B HOTEL - NORTH DEVON ACCOMMODATION - EXMOOR COUNTRY INN - FOODPUB RESTAURANT - BED AND BREAKFAST - STAY - GUEST HOUSE - FISHING - LYNMOUTH HOTEL - PORLOCKWELCOME TO DEVON'S LONELIEST PUBThe Rockford is perhaps one of England's finest rural Inns, set in a small hamlet deep in the heart of Exmoor National Park. The pub, which dates back to the 17th century lies nestled in a wooded gorge in the picturesque Brendon Valley overlooking the dramatic East Lyn River as it carves its way through wild moor down to the sea at Lynmouth 4 miles away. Its a traditional North Devon country pub popular with local farmers, ramblers and fishermen alike. 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.Sitting by the river you can enjoy a pint and a bite 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. You may even catch a glimpse of otter or the blue flash of kingfisher. 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.

The bed and breakfast pub is ideally situated in stunning countryside where you can take part in many outdoor activities. For equestrians there are stables nearby where you can arrange pony trekking and horse riding trips over the moor. The East Lyn River, famed for its game fishing, provides a stunning backdrop for anglers with dramatic gorges, waterfalls, rapids and pools aplenty. Fly fishing is permitted after March 15, and you may use spinner or worm on the river from 15 June till end of season. The biggest salmon caught last year is reputed to be 22 lbs. For walkers there is The Samaritans Way Footpath which connects Bristol and Lynmouth. The path runs alongside the river the whole length of the valley where you may also encounter deer or the wild boar that roam feely around the park.

The National Trust's Watersmeet House (now a tearoom) is just 1 mile downstream, and makes for a lovely half-day stroll. Although we are situated in a remote part of the moor we are near to Lynton, Malsmead, Dunster, Dulverton, Simonsbath & Exford. We are also close to the seaside towns of Ilfracombe, Wollacombe, Minehead, Porlock and Lynmouth with their restaurants, shops and tea-rooms. It's an interesting drive around the narrow, twisty lanes, up and down the often steep hills whilst dodging the sheep strayed from the moor.

The A39 skirts the coast for some 20 miles or so, and sandwiches you between two landcapes .On one side are picturesque views aross the cliffs and The Bristol Channel to South Wales, whilst the other presents a foreboding, bleak and windswept Exmoor.
