Once a popular haunt of smugglers, Heddon's Mouth sits at the end of the steep-sided valley of the Heddon river. The shore is mostly pebbles and shingle backed by high cliffs of Devonian sandstone, with an old lime kiln on the west side. Access is a walk of about ⅘ mile on a good footpath following the lively Heddon river down the wooded valley from the Hunter's Inn. Parking (P&D) is available at a National Trust car park (Grid Ref : SS657481 / Lat : 51.21626°N, Lon : 3.92429°W) where a small NT shop and toilets are available. On a clear day, the beach looks out towards Swansea and the Gower peninsula in south Wales. Refreshments are available at the Hunter's Inn which has outdoor seating.
Dogs are allowed at all times.
