Towering cliffs, coves and a wooded valley within Exmoor National Park
Heddon Valley, set in the West Exmoor coast, was the favourite landscape of the Romantic Poets including Wordsworth and Coleridge.
When you arrive, why not follow the deep, lush wooded river valley down to the sea at Heddon’s Mouth beach – a great walk for all the family. Or explore further east to Woody Bay, a quiet and wooded cove with spectacular views over the Bristol Channel. To the west, the Hangman Hills boast towering sea cliffs and beautiful moorland scenery, offering energetic walking and wonderful views over Combe Martin.
As well as spectacular coastal and woodland walks, there is also a pantry (selling take away hot drinks, cold drinks, snacks and ice creams) which has both indoor and outdoor seating. For a more substantial meal there is the Hunters Inn just down the road. There is a National Trust car park and toilets at Heddon Valley.
Open 10.30-5 pm daily (1 April – 31 October)
