About the neighbourhood
Martinhoe Cleave Cottages are located in the Heddon Valley, the “jewel” of Exmoor National Park, renowned for its unspoilt natural beauty. Walk out of your door into this beautiful valley, surrounded by ancient woodland, heather-covered moorland and spectacular views of the coastline, sea and moor. Experience one of Britain’s wild places from your doorstep. Witness the majesty of the stars at night in a designated international dark sky reserve. The area has many beautiful walks. The South West Coast Path, with its breath-taking scenery, is a short stroll from the cottages. Paths follow alongside the Heddon River and take you to the rugged cove of Heddons Mouth.
How to get there
From the M5, at junction 27, take the A361 towards South Molton. At the Aller Cross roundabout, take the 3rd exit signposted A399 for Combe Martin, Lynton and Blackmoor Gate. At Blackmoor Gate road junction, take the right tun onto the A39 for Lynton. Follow this road PAST the turnings for Parracombe and Heddons Mouth. Just past the Woody Bay Station, turn left at Martinhoe Cross, for Martinhoe and Woody Bay. At the next crossroads turn left again, signed for Hunters Inn and straight across at the next junction, again signposted for Hunters Inn. Follow the road DOWN into the valley, past Mannacott Farm on the sharp left hand bend and another 1/4 mile down the hill you will find our drive on the right hand side.
