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.
I would advise anyone who is in this area to book your stay at this hotel. Lovely atmosphere, cracking food and very comfortable rooms with helpful & friendly staff. Excellent breakfast and plenty of it!!!!
