Hi,

I want to permit all traffic to the following IP range: 10.20.16.10 - 10.20.16.13 - what entry would i add to an acl?

I have tried permit ip 10.20.16.10 *.*.*.* any but am unsure how to calculate the *.*.*.*.

permit ip 10.20.16.8 0.0.0.7 any

This will include hosts 10.20.16.9 - .14

You would have to exclude .9 and .14 explicitly:
deny ip host 10.20.16.9 any
deny ip host 10.20.16.14 any
permit ip 10.20.16.8 0.0.0.7 any

The mask is a wildcard mask instead of subnet mask.
Take the subnet mask that you would calculate to include the addresses that you want and subtract from 255.255.255.255
Example:
                   255.255.255.255
10.20.16.8  - 255.255.255.248
                       0 .   0.   0.   7 = wildcard mask ( or more accurately, and 'inverse' mask)

Is their any way around having to exclude .9 and .14 explicitly?

No. Masks only go so far. You have to break up into maskable "chunks"
The only mask that will include 10 - 13 is 255.255.255.248
10.20.16.8 / 30 only includes .9 and .10 with .11 as broadcast
10.20.16.12 / 30 only includes .13 and .14 with .15 as broadcast
The only way to get both 10 and 13 in the same mask is to go one bit back to .29
10.20.16.8 / 29 includes .9 through .14 with .15 as broadcast
With wildcard masks you can do even/odd numbers, but that still wouldn't give you the desired results to include 10, 11, 12 and 13
Your other option is to explicitly include each of the 4 IP's and all others are blocked by the implicit deny all
 permit ip host 10.20.16.10 any
 permit ip host 10.20.16.11 any
 permit ip host 10.20.16.12 any
 permit ip host 10.20.16.13 any
