Clovelly enjoys a stunning setting on the rugged North Devon coast.
Perched on a lofty promontory called the Wilderness, and just a short walk from the village along the coast path, is an historic summerhouse complete with verandah. Built in 1820, it has been beautifully restored, winning a civic conservation award. Particular attention was given to the use of local materials, including fine Delabole slates. Clovelly’s Wilderness Summerhouse could not be set in a more romantic location, and offers spectacular views across Bideford Bay to Lundy (Norse for island of puffins). It can also be reached by Land Rover, and is a highly popular venue for romantic outdoor weddings.
