What can guests enjoy when staying in the Bideford area?
When staying at Clovelly, view the film show of the history of the village, watch skilled craftspeople in the workshops creating silk and pottery, visit the Charles Kingsley and Fisherman's Cottage museums, and Clovelly Court Gardens at the top of the village, and see the famous donkeys and harbour. Take a boat trip along the coast or a fishing trip, or book a trip to Lundy. One of the best ways to appreciate the stunning setting of Clovelly is to stroll along Hobby Drive, and the coastal path in the opposite direction to Mouthmill also gives breathtaking views.
