Camp at Heddon Valley this summer

Wild camping at Heddon Valley

Deep-set and densely-wooded, the Heddon Valley meanders from the upland heaths of Exmoor to Heddon’s Mouth, a hidden stony sea inlet. Our campsite is tucked away, a long meadow bordering the river surrounded by sessile oaks, quiet and isolated yet within easy walking distance of the ranger base and car park at Hunter’s Inn, with its pub, ice cream shop and peacocks.

Family camping trips are a fantastic way to allow children to connect with nature and the outdoors

About the site

Our campsite is in a large wild meadow, 500m x 70m, running to the west of the Heddon River, reached by footpath and access gates.

Pitches are mowed but not manicured, and guests are invited to pick their own spot. Toilets are in the centre of the meadow near the hedge – they’re composting toilets, so please follow the instructions inside if you’re unaccustomed to them. The fire pit with log seating is also here – please don’t set fires anywhere else and be careful when cooking near your tent.

Please be aware that there is a barbed wire fence round the meadow (it is used once a year for cattle grazing), and that the long grass is a good habitat for ticks – talk to a ranger about dealing with ticks, Lyme disease and Weil’s disease.
