Clovelly named ‘beautiful seaside village’ by The Mirror

“Situated on the north coast of Devon perched on a 400ft cliff a four-hour-plus drive from our county, the fishing village has its roots all the way back to the days of William the Conqueror.”

“You can even stay overnight at The Red Lion Hotel where there are 19 rooms of various sizes on offer and you can mingle with locals in the adjacent Snug Bar in the evening. Come the morning you’ll wake up to the sights and smells from the hustle and bustle of the harbour below.

And what’s more, there is even a waterfall tucked away to the east of the uneven big pebbled beach. It is a slight trek and it is advised to wear some sturdy shoes. The walk from the top of the village to the waterfall takes about 90 minutes.”

The beautiful seaside village frozen in time – Surrey Live

“The ancient fishing village of Clovelly has a rich history and was originally in the hands of royalty.”

“The term “hidden gem” can sometimes be overused, so when you find out about somewhere genuinely off the beaten track it is a must-see. While Surrey has plenty of these, if you fancy a family holiday in the UK further afield then you should look no further than the picturesque settlement of Clovelly.

Situated on the north coast of Devon perched on a 400ft cliff a four-hour-plus drive from our county, the fishing village has its roots all the way back to the days of  William the Conquerer when he gifted the estate to his wife. It remained in the hands of royalty until the 1200s when it was acquired by the Giffard family but remained unknown to the wider world until the mid-19th century.”
