About Heddon Valley CampsiteWhether you’re looking for complete simplicity or rustic comfort Heddon Valley pop-up campsite is the perfect place to get away from it all.
Pitch your own tent or sleep in one of our pre-erected bell tents or Woodland Landpods set up ready for your arrival, in gloriously natural surroundings and enjoy the seclusion of this beautiful campsite.
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 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.
The campsite is in a large 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. The compost toilets are in the centre of the meadow near the hedge. There's a fire pit with log seating - firewood is available to purchase.
