Angel’s Wings lies along the South West Coast Path towards Mouthmill Cove.
It is a charming wooden shelter built in the 19th century. It gained its name from the ornately-carved wings supporting the roof. Built by Sir James Hamlyn Williams, a former owner of Clovelly. He placed it here so that he could look across Bideford Bay. Consequently in this way he was able to see where his daughter, Lady Chichester, lived at Youlston. Well worth the gentle stroll it takes to see this lovely structure and views. Once you’ve arrived you can rest on the seat amidst glorious woodland, enjoying lovely views. The Angel’s Wings is just one of a number of venues on Clovelly Estate that can be used for all sorts of celebrations. It is perfect for die-hard romantics as a place to pop the question.
