the Brendon Valley is one of Exmoor’s hidden treasures
Once discovered the Brendon Valley beguiles it’s visitors, drawing them back time and time again to enjoy its spectacular setting and tranquillity.
Encompassing the former hamlets of Leeford, Rockford and extending out towards Malmsmead in the east, the start of Lorna Doone Country.
Brendon meanders along the steep-sided valley bottom alongside the rapid flowing East Lyn River as it speeds its way to the sea at Lynmouth. The river is home to wild brown trout, salmon and sea trout for which fishing permits can be purchased locally.
The charming parish of Brendon is situated in North Devon close to the border with West Somerset. The main village is located next to the rushing waters of the spectacular East Lyn River.
Brendon is a picturesque and peaceful village with a good community. A car park and toilets can be found near the Brendon Village Hall.
The smaller, sleepy hamlet of Rockford is situated a little further along the East Lyn River towards Watersmeet at the bottom of a deeply wooded gorge.
