Walk - Heddon's Mouth
2.2 miles (3.5 km)
Hunter's Inn - EX31 4PY Hunter's Inn
Easy - Woodland, riverside paths and a pebbly beach, with relatively level terrain. A 'Tramper' all terrain mobility scooter can be hired (book in advance) from the National Trust at Heddon Valley and this can be used to explore many of the paths in this area. For more details see the Countryside mobility website.
A gentle stroll through ancient woodland bright with fresh leaves and wildflowers in the springtime, along a babbling stream to a tiny secluded shingle beach strewn with boulders and shadowed by steep, scree-clad hillsides, with dramatic cliffs of geological importance and tales of smugglers and U-boats. Children of all ages will love the rugged terrain, as well as the beach and the ruined limekiln. A stunning walk in autumn, when the trees start to turn and birds and small mammals rummage in the fallen leaves for winter provisions.
