Clovelly is a beautiful, picturesque fishing village, steeped in maritime atmosphere and history. It was once owned by the Queen of England!Book Tickets
We’re honoured that our ancient fishing village’s unique charms have been picked up by The Telegraph. On the 9th June we featured on their list of ‘England’s most beautiful villages‘.
Here’s what Telegraph Travel had to say about Clovelly in their piece ‘An expert guide to a weekend in Devon‘.
“Scattered up a hillside and clinging to a 400-foot cliff overlooking Bideford Bay, Clovelly has to be one of Devon’s most famous villages. While donkeys used to be the main mode of transport, now they’re just used for children’s rides, so be prepared for a hike if you want to walk down to the seafront and back. If you fancy trying some of the freshly caught fish, head to the Red Lion Harbour Restaurant.”
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.
