About Heddon Valley Campsite

Whether you’re looking for complete simplicity or rustic comfort Heddon Valley pop-up campsite is the perfect place to get away from it all.

Deep-set and densely-wooded, the Heddon Valley meanders from the upland heaths of Exmoor to Heddon’s Mouth, a hidden stony sea inlet. This campsite is tucked away in two of the meadows 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.

Set up your own tent in the riverside meadow where our pitches are mowed but not manicured. Guests are invited to pick their own spot. Alternatively book one of our pre-erected bell tents or Woodland Landpods set up in the adjoining meadow. This simple site allows you to experience camping in an amazing setting but to do that you need to forgo some of lifes luxuries. Both meadows have a compost toilet but no showers, and you will collect water a few hundred metres away, alongside the Hunters Inn pub.

When you wake in a meadow of rare butterflies, hear the surf hitting the beach at Heddon's Mouth or watch the deer in the wood at sunset you will appreciate why we are keeping it simple.
