We could hardly stay in Higher Clovelly without visiting Clovelly Village. We got there nice and early before it was too busy and made our way down to the harbour on the rain slippery cobbles, planning to stop and look at the shops and museums and tearoom on the way back up.
This cat made us laugh – we saw it using a couple of flower pots on a front door step as litter trays then going back to his own house for his breakfast! He had a cat-flap in the window and his food bowl on the windowsill.
At the top of the hill are the donkey stables…
…and Clovelly Pottery. I fell in love with this rabbit bowl and cover, and Mark offered to buy it for me but we have nowhere to display it and it would be a waste to hide it in the cupboard.
Included in the price of the Clovelly entrance ticket is Clovelly Court gardens. This house sits at the top of the drive – I like the slogan.
