HEDDON Valley at Hunters Inn has been voted the best dog walk in the west by users of the South West Coast Path.

The steep Exmoor coombe near Parracombe with its stream, craggy hillsides and gorse covered slopes is a great favourite with North Devon walkers and beat off competition from across the region.

Bucks Mills also featured in the top 10 in the contest organised by the coastpath team.

One lucky voter, Alison Moreland and her dog Pepper, from Shepperton in Middlesex, received a year’s supply of Laughing Dog for nominating Heddon’s Mouth.
