East Cleave headland from across the Heddon valley
The path from Hunters' Inn has now reached the top of the cliffs. In the background is the headland of East Cleave with the line of the South West Coast Path visible. At the foot of the headland is Heddon's Mouth.
The Hunters' Inn to Woody Bay coach road :: SS6649

Remarkably there is an old coach road between Hunters' Inn & Woody Bay that ran along the cliff tops. This now provides a wide & well-surfaced path that provides superb views of the Exmoor coastline. Inevitably there are some steep sections & a couple of hairpins as the path goes around the narrow valleys of Hill Brook & Hollow Brook. It must have been an interesting trip in a horse-drawn carriage, especially in an Exmoor breeze, contemplating the steep drop onto rocks at the bottom of the cliffs. The circular walk can be completed using lanes from Woody Bay to Martinhoe & thence back to Hunter's Inn.
