Walking in and around the Hoops Inn is really delightful, there are many walks that combine great views of the cliffs along the coast of Bideford Bay, bluebell woods, burbling streams, a cliff-top walk through ancient Oak woods, two different visits to the sea shore, no main roads, and all of it in unspoilt countryside.
Over 30 miles of the Tarka Trail is available to walkers and cyclists between Braunton and Meeth, using the old railways of North Devon. Passing through the largely unspoilt countryside as it was described by Henry Williamson in his classic novel 'Tarka the Otter' first published in 1927.
There are many valuable wildlife habitats along the route including estuary mud flats and salt marshes, oak woodland, hazel coppice, hedges, ponds, streams, ditches and meadows.
We stayed on a Groupon deal and took our dog, very good value and it was nice not to be looked down on for coming on a Groupon deal as some places seem too a little. I love North Devon and the location is very good for exploring all the local sites. We ate from the bar menu and the food was very tasty. Recommended:-)
