Leaves drifting in the background


Discover the timeless village of Clovelly perched on the North Devon cliffs. The village and its church date back to the 13th century and it’s changed little since. No cars are allowed down its famous cobbled main street, and goods are still transported up and down by sledge. At the top of the village is a well-equipped visitor’s centre with a café and shops.

Valley of Rocks

Like a landscape from the American West, Valley of Rocks near Lynton and Lynmouth is one of North Devon’s most famous beauty spots. It is often used as a backdrop for film and TV. Huge rock formations and boulder fields give way to panoramic vistas of the Bristol Channel. Parking is close and you can enjoy a bite to eat in the tearooms.

Delivered in October 2012, Verity caused much debate, but love or hate, she adds to Ilfracombe’s unique charisma.
