Clovelly EX39 5TA 01237 431 781
Outside of peak season, cobbled Clovelly, eight miles west of Bideford, is as absurdly pretty as it looks on numerous chocolate boxes. From its visitor centre, you descend into a West Country arcadia that tumbles to a tiny port; a bygone scene admired by Dickens and Turner. Its understandable why, then, from June to August, every coach tour in the area stops by and crowds the quiet spot commenting on how beautiful it is, "but isn't it busy". You have been warned, stick to the off-peak option if you have it or accept that you probably won't be the only visitor.
Really nice place, cracking view from the top and on the way down you get little glimpses of the harbour. At the bottom we got boat trip along the coast, were you can see water fall and other little gems. On the way back up grab a cream tea from the coffee shop, sit enjoy the view and people watch.......
Id go early as it did get start to get busy.
