Heddon's Mouth

Heddon's Mouth

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 shingle backed by high cliffs, 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) 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.

Dogs are allowed at all times.
