  • Day 3: Clovelly

    We visit the charming seaside village of Clovelly which huddles around a port and is completely pedestrianised, adding to its charm. From the village’s steep cobbled high street there is a fantastic view of Bideford Bay and the Isle of Lundy.

    Relying on donkeys and sledges to navigate the steep streets, much has remained unchanged for the small population who still live here, but thankfully for the tourists who visit, there are now Land Rovers to help you back to the top of the hill (charges apply, pay locally).
