Clovelly is one of the best known and most unusual villages in North Devon. The cobbled high street winds its way down the hillside, through traditional 16th century whitewashed cottages decked with fuchsias and geraniums, dropping 400ft down to the small harbour. Once integral to the daily lives of villagers, helping move sledges up and down the hill, the donkeys are now some of Clovelly's favourite residents and they enjoy a much more peaceful life now!

On your way back up, perhaps take a break at one of the pubs for fresh, local seafood or a cream tea, or you may prefer to take one of the local Land Rovers back to the top (extra charges payable locally, subject to availability).

This morning, enjoy a visit to the bustling town of Barnstaple – famous for its pottery. The largest town in North Devon, Barnstaple has a prosperous past and was once a major port for American trade. It remains a thriving market town with a partly pedestrianised centre and many charming buildings, narrow streets and pretty alleys.

Later in the day, we call at the Dartington Crystal Visitor Centre to see the skilled craft makers at work. Learn more about Dartington's glass making story in the Visitor Centre, before admiring the glass makers at work from the viewing areas and overhead walkways.

We have recently returned from another Self Drive holiday to Llandudno, staying at the Marine Hotel. We had the most wonderful time - Hotel was again clean and comfortable and was beautifully warm (which was needed). All staff are wonderfully friendly and welcoming and we could not fault this holiday - we always enjoy our stay and cannot wait to return.
