About the property

3 Bedroomed Cottage, Located Within National Trust Land Of The Beautiful Watermeet Estate

The cottage stands on the sunny bank of the picturesque East Lyn river at Rockford in the lovely Brendon Valley of Lorna Doone fame. Situated on National Trust land of the beautiful Watersmeet Estate, Rockford Lodge is approached by a footbridge and is peacefully set in a woodland away from all traffic. The spectacular coast of North Devon is nearby with Lynton and Lynmouth just four miles away. From the garden gate river, moorland and coastal walks abound and the surrounding countryside is a delight for the naturalist, country lover and photographer. Salmon and trout fishing is available on the East Lyn and there is excellent riding nearby.

The cottage has 3 comfortable sized bedrooms, 2 twin and 1 double a large bathroom with separate shower plus an additional loo. Downstairs there is ample living space. In the sitting room is an open fire for the colder months plus there is a large dining/TV room. The farmhouse kitchen has a breakfast table and is kept beautifully warm from the AGA. There is also a stunning River Room overlooking the East Lyn River, the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine! There is a hillside garden with a summer house (deckchairs provided) as well as a private garden. Table and chairs plus a bbq are provided.

About Mrs Lucy Casella

Rockford Lodge has been a part of our family for nearly 40 years. My parents with 2 young boys and me on the way spent many years furnishing, decorating and partly restoring it so that it can be shared with others. It is wonderful now that I can go to Rockford Lodge with my 3 children, a new generation. Although my mother still regularly visits the cottage the overall running is now been passed onto me. Please do have a look at our website. The tariff and availability is always kept up-to-date. If I can be of any help then please do not hesitate to contact me. We look forward to welcoming you to Rockford Lodge in the near future.

Mrs Lucy Casella purchased this cottage in 1970

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had a wonderful holiday. We were very impressed by Rockford Lodge which had everything we needed and more! A spare rucksack, table lamps, books to read, games to play etc. It was like a home from home which in our experience of self-catering accommodation is quite rare. It was also really nice to be able to do some great walks from the door of the Lodge.'



'May we take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude for letting us rent your beautiful house in that most beautiful setting by the River Lyn. We agreed it was the best holiday home we had been in so far.'



'We had a wonderful holiday and loved Rockford Lodge even more the second time. We hated to leave.'
