Where are Clovelly Court Gardens?

Opening times: 1st April to 30th September, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Wheelchair accessible and WC for the disabled.

The entry charge to Clovelly Village includes free admission. If you just wish to visit the gardens there is a small entry charge. You’ll find them to the right at the top of the village, following the path to All Saints Church.

Clovelly Court Garden is a classic example of a lovingly restored Victorian walled kitchen garden, including magnificent lean-to glasshouses with their original manual levers.

Peaches, apricots, nectarines, vines, citrus fruit, figs, cucumbers, peppers, chillies, aubergines and tomatoes can be bought, in season, together with cut flowers and pot plants from the nursery.

Espalier fan and cordon fruit trees line the walls enclosing the garden, which also shelter vegetables grown to organic principles and in rotation, ensuring sweet tasting and wholesome produce for sale.  The Red Lion and the New Inn are both supplied with the fruit and vegetables from the gardens.

The unique maritime microclimate of the garden is produced by the effects of the warm Gulf stream flowing past Clovelly, which with its enviable sheltered position in the Bristol Channel allows the growth of tender and exotic plants.

You’ll find that there’s always something to see and enjoy.
