The Heddon Valley is, without doubt, beautiful. We think the best way to really see it is from the South West Coast Path.
Start the walk at the Hunter’s Inn where you can enjoy refreshments before or after your walk. The first part of this walk is quite steep as you ascend above the Heddon Valley. It flattens, but the drop to your right is quite steep … actually very steep.
Follow the South West Coast Path and then decide how far you would like to walk. You can bear left and follow an inner valley path, or the actual coast path.
Both options are breathtaking and will bring you back to the Hunter’s Inn via Trentishoe and it’s delightful Church.
