Attractions

     
  Clovelly & Visitor Centre
The cobbled, traffic-free, high street of this world famous fishing village, built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff, tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port.
It is famous for its donkeys, which traditionally carry goods up the hill; sledges bring things down.  There are links with Charles Kingsley, Turner, Dickens and the Spanish Armada.

  Hartland Abbey
Hartland Abbey is the lived-in family home of the Stucley family. Although it was built in the 12th century, remaining as a monastery for 400 years and passing through the female line three times, it has never been sold. Consequently, it contains collections of pictures, furniture and porcelain which have accumulated over many generations. The story of the Abbey mirrors local and national history at every turn. It has a friendly and lived-in atmosphere, so often absent in many of our nation’s historic houses, a point continually remarked upon by those who visit us too!!
