Clovelly Harbour in DevonThe best known feature of Clovelly village is its cobbled main street, which drops steeply between the exquisite flower-decked cottages, making steps necessary. Vehicles are not admitted to the village, and for those who cannot manage the steep village street a fare-paying Land Rover service is available from the Visitor Centre.

The main street leads to Clovelly's tiny sixteenth-century harbour, which is set in a gap in the cliffs. It is also worth visiting the church, with its old pews and memorials to past lords of the manor.
