My husband and I walked the South West Coast Path in October and had booked into this hotel months earlier and we were so glad we did. The owners are lovely and the room was amazing though I forgot to take photos of our room but were able to get the pics of other rooms as the owner showed us...

Tucked away and suitably isolated, this independent and friendly hotel, newly refurbished stands prominent and whilst overlooking a valley, it is but a short distance from the sea. Situated between Coombe Martin and Lynton and Lynmouth, a short drive away, there are numerous walks to choose from and lots of hills to climb. One feels at home here, lounging in...

You do not stumble on Heddon’s Gate Hotel by accident. It requires an effort of will to go there. While certainly remote, if you avoid the Scylla and Charybdis of map and satnav and instead follow the hotel’s own directions on their website, it is easy enough to get there. It is in a clearing on the side of a...

Spot on if you want peace and quiet, good food, attentive and helpful hosts and a base for walking the coastal paths. When we visited the hotel was very quiet which meant the dining room and bar were lacking in atmosphere, although there is a pub at the bottom of the hill we could have gone to. But we were...

Wow - what a great weekend we have had at the Heddons Gate hotel to celebrate our anniversary with our married son's and their children - 11 of us in all with children ranging from 4 to 1 year old. This was our original honeymoon hotel back in 1976. We were greeted by Mark and Pat, the owners on arrival...

Our hosts, Mike and. Pat, made us so welcome on our arrival to this delightful beautifully restored hotel. Our family room was large and comfortable with great bathroom. Our room was at the back but the front rooms have a view. The journey to the hotel took us a while because it was hard to find, but once there the...

A one night stay as part of a short motorbike tour of Devon and Cornwall. We were made to feel very welcome at Heddon's Gate. This is a family run hotel, recently refurbished in a beautiful, quiet valley in Exmoor. Room was very comfortable, dinner (braised beef) and breakfast were very good. Spectacular cliff top walks and to a deserted...

It was so nice to find a hotel that had thought things through. We took our dog with us and we were most welcome. Customers with dogs have a dedicated dining room. We can have all the joys of being in a dining room with our doggy family with us. They have a separate dining room for guest without dogs....
