  • Sheltered by thick woods on the north Devon coast, Clovelly’s white cottages and steep cobbled high street give it a distinctive character.
  • Stroll down to the harbour among its historic buildings, and admire the views out to sea. You can even set off on fishing trips from the quayside.
  • You’ll find the pretty seaside town of Bude, in Cornwall, about a 30 minute drive south of the village.
  • Clovelly is around 5 hours 45 minutes west of London via a combination of bus and train.
