Details

Few places can match the enviable setting of this hotel, superbly positioned on the slopes of the magnificently wooded Heddon Valley. Hidden at the end of a quarter-mile drive, you will discover Heddon's Gate, with its tranquil country house atmosphere.

Built as a hunting lodge in the 1890's, when the Victorian wealthy were choosing all the best sites for their country estates, the hotel is now a charming fusion of different styles.

Heddon's Gate has eleven distinctive bedrooms, each equipped with TV, radio, hair dryer and hot drink facilities. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with WC, basin, bidet, bath and/or shower.

Relax and unwind in the comfort of the hotel. Why not curl up with your favourite book in the library, or enjoy the inspiring view whilst taking tea in the spacious lounge. Later on meet fellow guests in the bar, enjoy an aperitif and browse the dinner menu and carefully chosen wine list.

Eating at Heddon's Gate is always an occasion. Start the day with a hearty English breakfast, or a lighter option if preferred.
The main event of the day is the excellent 4 course dinner. Savour the very best local produce, prepared to a high standard by the proprietors, who are passionate about serving good food. Then retire to the bar or lounge, where you will find coffee and tea with after dinner mints.

The natural beauty of Exmoor makes it a walkers paradise. Explore dramatic coastal scenery, spectacular moorlands, wooded combes and varied wildlife. Many favourite walks start directly from the hotel.

Much of the unspoilt countryside is equally accessible by car. You can also explore the stately old houses, gardens, castles, museums, fine churches, markets and craft centres that abound in North Devon.

Experience the best of Exmoor hospitality at Heddon's Gate.

    A really lovely place to stay. Lisa looked after us very well. Breakfast was great and the surrounding area and gardens all well kept and charming.
