Heddon Valley

Heddon Valley, Martinhoe. EX31 4PY | 01598 763 402 | Website

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.
