Clovelly - Devon

From Bideford, it is but ten miles along the coast to one of the most popular tourist spots in all England (and one of the most congested). Called "impossibly picturesque," the village of Clovelly is a visitor's dreamscape, but a motorist's (and frugal visitor's) nightmare. Walkers, cyclists and users of public transport have the right of way to the village, where the cobbled, traffic-free main street plunges steeply down to the sea past flower-smothered, tiny cottages. At the bottom of a cleft in the cliff is the tiny harbor and stony beach from where there are fishing boat trips and excursions to Lundy Island (you can reach Clovelly by train from Paddington, change at Exeter for Barnstaple, and then by bus).
