VISIT to Clovelly Court Gardens, North Devon
DATE Wednesday June 7th 2017
DEPART by coach from Uplyme Village Hall at 9am
Plants thrive in this sheltered corner of North Devon and these old walled gardens are tranquil in contrast to the bustle of the village. There are colourful herbaceous beds, kitchen gardens and restored Victorian glasshouses growing Mediterranean fruits such as peaches, apricots melons, grapes and lemons. And there are glorious views towards Lundy from the terrace. You can buy bedding plants, vegetables and fruit here, and picnics are allowed. The 13th-century parish church is next door, and the Clovelly visitor centre with a cafe and shop is nearby.
Clovelly’s picturesque harbour is half a mile away through the pretty cobblestone streets of the village. This is a steep walk down and back up, though thankfully a Land Rover taxi service is available (at extra cost).
Cost is £20 total. Please phone Brian Cursley 07831 533580 to book your place.
