Very cramped shower;
Water temperature highly erratic;
No heating in bathroom.
As George Mikes (pronounced Meekesh) reported to us in his hilarious memoire of an immigrant to Britain, "How To Be An Alien":
"It is all right to have central heating in an English home, except in the bath room, because that is the only place where you are naked and wet at the same time, and you must give British germs a fair chance."

Just 4 miles up river from Lynton and Lynmouth, The Rockford, one of England s finest Inns, lies in the scenic Brendon Valley and is a great place to stay for those wishing to explore the vast open expanses of Exmoor National Park in North Devon. One of the favourite small hotels in Devon, The Rockford is part of a small hamlet, hidden away deep in the heart of the most picturesque countryside. The 17th century pub lies at the foot of a gorge overlooking the dramatic East Lyn River as it carves it s way through the wild Devon moors down to the sea at Lynmouth. Fantastic riverside walks abound, along National Trust footpaths which take you through woods, past waterfalls, rocky rapids and deep, dark, salmon-filled pools, lined by lush green ferns and mosses. On top, over the rugged windswept moors, the wild Exmoor Ponies can be found along with cattle and sheep that roam, grazing freely. Down below, in the valleys, deer, badger, kingfisher and otter may be seen by those lucky and stealthy enough. You can sit by our riverside patio and enjoy a pint as you watch herons stalking salmon and trout, as well as the odd, unfortunate, frog. The sound of rushing water over the rocky rapids provides a tranquility to behold. 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. As a traditional North Devon Inn we offer excellent home cooked seasonal foods, local brewed real ales and comfortable accommodation in which to stay. With our open fires and wood burners we provide a cosy and convivial atmosphere in which to relax and is popular with local farmers, ramblers and fishermen alike. We have two seasonal rate cards, winter and summer, where double rooms are just 60 UK Pounds per night including breakfast for two. We also have a small single room with shower available for those on a tight budget.
