About Heddon Lodge

Next door to a pretty traditional country inn and only a mile away from a rocky beach, Heddon Lodge has everything you need for a fabulous coastal escape.

You’ll find this pretty apartment up a steep lane, right next door to the pub. Walkers and wildlife lovers will adore the rolling hills and rocky beaches of this part of north Devon, and with 2,000 acres of woodland, moorland and coastline which is home to red deer and otters, you’ll be spoilt for outdoor adventures.

Set within the buildings that make up the Hunter’s Inn, Exmoor, and only a mile away from the coast, this beautifully renovated apartment in a contemporary style is the perfect bolthole for couples or friends exploring the north Devon coast. Decorated in neutral colours with lovely high ceilings in the living area, there’s two bedrooms (one king and one twin), and a bathroom with both a walk in shower and a bath, perfect for soaking tired limbs after a coastal walk. Outside, the balcony overlooks the gorgeous garden of the Hunter’s Inn and beyond, the wooded Heddon Valley. Up to two dogs are welcome to stay and join in with your adventures too.

When you stay here, you’ll be right in the heart of Exmoor, surrounded by beautiful woodland, moorland and with the glorious north Devon coast on your doorstep too. The nearest beaches at Heddon’s Mouth and Woody Bay are only a mile away via footpaths.  You’ll find family-friendly sandy beaches (and the towns) of Combe Martin and Lynmouth nearby as well. The walks don’t stop there however, and Woolacombe, Watersmeet  and Mortenhoe are all within walking distance. While you’re exploring this unspoilt area around Hunter's Inn, keep your eyes peeled for the peacocks showing off.

Keen walkers can head inland to discover the Hangman Hills, with views over Combe Martin and the Bristol Channel.  Or fans of the coast can hop on a ferry to explore the island of Lundy, with its populations of puffins, seals and Manx shearwater. If you’d rather ditch the boat, but still stay near the sea, then you’ll find surfers catching some waves at Croyde or Woolacombe. Further afield is bustling Barnstaple, and if you haven’t seen as many wild animals as you’d like, how about a day at Exmoor Zoo?

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
