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.
"Cracking hotel combining rustic charm with comfortable rooms, excellent food and proper ales(not gas forced, straight from the keg). Stopped in room 5, four poster bed and well nice. Room overlooked main road but traffic noise was not a problem. Pity i couldnt pick the hotel up and take it with me for my next stop out." Oct 2012
