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

We have applied a 1-5 Acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC 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 is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

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 sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
