Looking down on clovelly

I try to get a haircut but they are all booked out so we set off for a small village called Clovelly – on the coast and only one steep cobbled road between the houses, leading to a small port.

We were surprised to find that we had to pay to visit. Very quaint. One of the homes used to belong to Charles Kingsley who wrote (among other books) The Water Babies – a book I couldn’t stand as a kid and have never finished reading. The locals use hand made sleighs to cart things up and down the street – sometimes using donkeys.

After a wander around we enjoy tea and scones – then we walk through the forest along the cliffs for a couple of hours, just so that we don’t feel guilty.

A lovely day – we meander home have a late tea and enjoy the company of some our elderly hotel companions.
