Walking

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.

Tarka Trail

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.

What can I say about Hoops Inn. It was my birthday in February and what a great stay we had. Our room 3 was stunning, The staff were delightful, the place was spotless, the food outstanding. Breakfast of pancakes with crispy bacon and syrup what a way to start a day out. The evening meal was made special for me with a birthday card and candles on our table from the staff it was a lovely touch which I wont forget. Thanks again we will be back for a second trip this time I shall bring our family. . Furneaux (Gower)
