We were walking the South West Coast path and it's quite a pull up from the river to the hotel but it's worth it. It's a wonderful position and setting looking out over the valley and with a large terrace that catches the evening sun. We had a beautiful room - with double aspect windows and a state of the...

Mum and I were walking the coastal path for charity (in Victorian costume) so only stayed for the one night. But Mark and Pat made us so comfortable and took care of our every need. I'm certainly intending to return for a proper break so I can really benefit from the beautiful location and relaxing environment rather than heading off... More

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Heddon's Gate. Pat and Mark were there to greet us when we arrived and immediately served us tea and cake (partly to calm our nerves after the steep drive up to the hotel!) The rooms were beautiful with stunning décor. All three reception areas were very comfortable and the dining room... More

What a fantastic find! Pat and Mark who own this hotel are the nicest couple and nothing is too much bother for them. They are extremely welcoming. The hotel is clean and comfortable. Our room had a double aspect (stunning) view. The breakfast was plentiful and beautifully cooked. Our evening meal was simply delicious. What's not to like! Yes we... More

Family of 4 stayed one night for a christening nearby. Kids (10 & 8) particularly loved the family room set up. The owners were very hospitable and are working hard to restore the hotel to former glory. The verandah overlooking the jungle with lots of interesting plants from all over the world makes it a real haven. The breakfast was... More

Last week I had the pleasure of staying at the Heddon's Gate Hotel with a friend of mine. Such a gorgeous and tranquil setting in exactly the right place to discover the delights of Exmoor National Park and the surrounding coastal towns. This small hotel is in a fabulous off the beaten track position tucked into the valley by Heddon's... More

The location and views are beautiful, but it's the incredibly warm welcome that will make your visit one you will want to repeat. Mark and Pat really do go out of their way to ensure that you eat exceptionally well, have plenty of great ideas for how to spend your days and generally feel at home in this spacious, charming...

Our stay at Heddons Gate was lovely from start to finish. A very warm welcome from Mark and Pat was followed up with recommendations for dinner, local walks, etc. Our room was spotlessly clean and beautiful, with outstanding views. We travelled with our dog Buddy, and nothing was too much trouble to accommodate the 3 of us. We didn't want... More

Mark and Pat Cowell made us really welcome to their lovely hotel in this beautiful and tranquil setting. Unfortunately we only had two days to spend there, we would have loved to stay longer. We had a very smart and comfortable room with a great view, and we really enjoyed the tasty breakfasts. Mark and Pat gave us great advice... More

We received the warmest of welcomes from (owners) Mark and Pat and we wish to thank them for their excellent service and their attention to detail (such as the delicious chocolate cake they presented to my mother on her 80th birthday). The hotel is one of the jewels of Exmoor and the comfortable atmosphere created by the owners was thoroughly... More
