I was disappointed by Clovelly. You're met with a huge visitor centre full of tat you could find in any pound shop and not representative of the history of the town or the surrounding areas.
It was £6.50 to get in, it was a Sunday and it was 10:30am, despite the member of staff telling us everything was open - nothing was. The pub didn't open for coffee until 12 and there is no way you can kill an hour and a half at this time of year.
The cobbled streets are lovely, but are dangerously slippery, not advisable for anyone unstable on their feet or small children. The village looks tired and in need of some atmosphere, which is not achieved through tacky Christmas decorations or sparkly beads hanging from random points.
I've read on here there is a free way in via an alternative road - take it.
