Rockford Lodge stands on the sunny banks of the East Lyn river at Rockford in the beautiful Brendon Valley of Lorna Doone fame.

Rockford Lodge sits in its own secluded gardens. There is also a separate adjoining hillside garden with a patio and summerhouse.

The Ford

The footbridge across the East Lyn River

The Rockford Inn is conveniantly located just the other side of the East Lyn river and welcomes families and dogs. 

Evening dining is very popular so booking is adviseable.

Rockford Lodge as previously featured in 'Good Holiday Cottage Guide'*

'This cottage is one of our all-time favourites, particularly for its location: it's a special pleasure to leave our car in the main part of the hamlet of Rockford (just a pub and a handful of cottages) and walk a few yards over a footbridge across the tumbling River East Lyn to see Rockford Lodge again and, sometimes, to meet the contented people staying in it.

One of the 'The Good Holiday Cottage Guide' inspectors, who has compiled a 'top ten' of his favourite cottages, includes Rockford Lodge in it.  He, like us, enjoys places that ramble a bit, and have something of a farmhousey character.  Tucked away in a secret, wooded valley on the edge of mysterious Exmoor, Rockford has a big kitchen with a cosy Aga, fitted carpets, lots of books, paintings and a very big, upstairs bathroom.  The river that rushes past the garden fence does not do so loudly enough to keep one awake!  The footpaths in the beautiful woods outside the conservatory-like 'river room' beckons one for walks.  Described over the years by readers as 'a genuine home from home'.... 'wonderfully well equipped'..... 'the setting is marvellous'; the cottage is used quite frequently by the owners themselves.'
