The Rockford Inn lies at the bottom of a hidden valley high up on Exmoor and overlooking the East Lyn River which drains the moorland around Brendon Common. The spectacular fast flowing river flows through wooded valleys, narrow rocky gorges, and over house-size boulders down to the sea at Lynmouth.
Bonnicott House sits in an elevated position in Lynmouth village centre with sea views and close to the East Lyn River, where it flows into the Bristol Channel. The quaint fishing village is home to many restaurants, cafes and gift shops. The twin village Lynton sits 500 ft above atop some off England's highest sea cliffs.
You can walk between the two establishments along the banks of the East Lyn River. There is a well kept footpath (maintained by the National Trust) which runs parallel to the water's edge. The more leisurely route is downhill starting from Rockford, and takes between 2 and 3 hours depending on your walking speed. It's entirely possible to spend the whole day taking in the many beauty spots along the way.
Indeed, the footpath between the two also forms part of the Coleridge Way. There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen including; deer, otter, wild exmoor ponies, badger, salmon, trout, kingfisher, stork and dippers and many others, too many to mention.
The East Lyn River is famed for it's fishing and canoeing, but what many people don't know is that there are also some amazing wild swimming spots such as this one at Ash Pool, a bit cold but well worth it (in summer months)
