Towering cliffs, coves and a wooded valley within Exmoor National Park
The Heddon Valley set in the West Exmoor coast was the favourite landscape of the Romantic Poets. Follow the deep, lush wooded river valley down to the sea at Heddon's Mouth beach – a great walk for all of 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 an information centre and gift shop, car park and toilets in Heddon Valley itself.
