Great room, great food, great location. What more could you ask? The two ladies who run this establishment really have "hospitality" down to a fine art. Terrific walking right from the door. The Rockford Inn really is a hidden gem. This was our second visit - there will definitely be more!

We stayed at The Rockford Inn in late July for 3 nights. Great location and the proprietors were very helpful and attentive throughout our stay. We were there for a short walking and sight seeing visit. Maps and the best walk information were readily supplied. The room, food and beer were very good. Could not complain about anything. Recommended.

Stayed at the Rockford for three nights, wish it was longer! The setting is beautiful, very quiet and sits beside a river. The room was very clean and modern, we had a room to the side of the inn, so couldn't see the river. Breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked and plentiful, Catherine is very attentive and offers more...

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here at this beautiful location, and the walk alongside the river through the woods to Watersmeet was worth the effort. Although extended since our last visit 50 years ago whilst on honeymoon, it was just as friendly and welcoming. Maybe next time we will get to stay.
