Hunter's Inn, Heddon Valley

Nestled in a quiet valley within Exmoor National Park, Hunter’s Inn offers a special place to stay in North Devon.

Surrounded by 2,000 acres of woodland, moorland and coastline that we care for, the hotel is bursting with history and character. With 10 en-suite bedrooms, a bar and restaurant, gardens and separate self-catering apartment, Hunter’s Inn offers high-quality accommodation in a unique location. 

Walkers will love exploring the rolling hills, rocky beaches and windswept cliffs that inspired Shelley, Coleridge and Wordsworth, before returning to kick off their boots and relax after a day on the trails. 

The surrounding area is also a haven for wildlife such as red deer and otters, so don’t forget to bring your camera. With a bit of luck you might even spot the UK's most endangered butterfly: the High Brown Fritillary. 

The historic seaside resorts of Combe Martin and Lynmouth are close to the hotel and the golden sands of Woolacombe are a short drive away, perfect for sandcastle-builders and surfers alike.
