Heddons Mouth - Beach & Historical Area
Heddon’s Mouth is a rocky cove on the coast of North Devon, England, about a mile down the River Heddon from the Hunter’s Inn. It is preserved for the nation by the National Trust and is a wonderful gentle walk for all.
In previous times it was a popular venue for smugglers, but is now a popular destination for ramblers. In 1885 a Mr E.D. Weedon was awarded the Royal Humane Society’s Bronze Medal for saving the life of Mr T. Groves at the locality.In 1923 a pleasure steamer that had just left Ilfracombe broke its rudder and began to drift out to sea, but was towed to the cove and its 400 passengers safely decanted.
Exmoor - National Park
Exmoor is a National Park situated on the Bristol Channel coast of south west England and covers two counties, Devon and Somerset. The largest settlements are Porlock, Dulverton, Lynton, and Lynmouth, which together contain almost 40% of the National Park population. There are many beautiful walks and views to be seen here and the area is ideal for both novice and experienced walkers. Nutcombe Cottages are only a short walk from the edge of Exmoor and the South West Coast Path.
Ilfracombe - Beach and Seaside Town
The parish, which includes a significant rural area and other villages outside the town of Ilfracombe, stretches along the coast from 'The Coastguard Cottages' in Hele Bay toward the east and 6 km along The Torrs to Lee Bay toward the west. The landmark of Hillsborough Hill dominates the harbour and is the site of an Iron Age Celtic fortress. The award-winning Landmark Theatre is either loved or hated for its unusual double-conical design; it is distinctive and, with the St Nicholas's Chapel on Lantern Hill, a major landmark in the town.
