Hunter's Inn

Purchased by the National Trust in 2018, Hunter's Inn in North Devon lies at the heart of 2,000 acres of land that the Trust already cares for. The property features 10 en-suite bedrooms, alongside a bar and restaurant, as well as Heddon Lodge, a two-bedroom self-catering apartment.

Originally a thatched cottage, the building was reconstructed in the “Swiss Style” at the height of the Victorian Era, it is set within four acres of landscaped gardens, which form an idyllic backdrop for weddings and family events.

Hunter's Inn sits alongside a collection of 39 outstanding pubs and restaurants across the country owned by the National Trust, many of which have been designated historically significant. Moving forward, every pint, meal and stay enjoyed at Hunter's Inn will help to look after the wildlife of the valley and contribute to improved access for visitors.


We strongly encourage you to enter the Heddon Valley from the west via Trentishoe Down (see map attached). All other routes are very narrow. Please leave plenty of time for your journey – the roads are slower than a sat-nav will tell you. 

Please see the location page for best driving route to the hotel.
