The Foray Motor Group featured an article on South West of England attractions with ideas on driving days out this Spring. This includes Clovelly and many other lovely attractions in Northern Devon and Cornwall.
Another trip that must be a part of your spring itinerary is driving down to Clovelly Village in Devon. The quaint and visually striking village of Clovelly should be explored for its historic nature, colourful appearance, and stunning cliffs over the port below. Once you’ve parked up, visitors will notice zero traffic in sight when in the village, making for an idyllic spring experience, allowing you to enjoy the endearing qualities that are present all around. With charming village shops, pretty cottages, and fantastic spots to enjoy a bite to eat, there’s so much to like about the experience. Throw in a local donkey or two, fantastic cream teas, gardens, and interesting museums, and Clovelly Village more than earns its place on our list.
The Christmas lights turn on is a magical time in Clovelly. Starting at 4 pm in the afternoon, a local brass band leads the procession down to the harbour, with festive Christmas carols sung along the way.
There’ll be a hog roast, hot dogs, Christmas grog and other refreshments available at the Harbour and Lifeboat Station. Then, Father Christmas will make a surprise visit!
Entrance fee: £10 per car at the Visitor Centre after 2 pm. All proceeds will go to the R.N.L.I.
