Clovelly Court Gardens
“A classic walled Victorian kitchen garden” - AA Inspector
Warmed by the Gulf Stream in this sheltered corner of Devon, Clovelly Court is a classic walled Victorian kitchen garden with old lean-to greenhouses and 12ft-high walls. Soft fruits, citrus fruits, a vine and a fig tree, exotic vegetables and tomatoes grow here and you can buy them, along with cut flowers and pot plants, from the nursery. From the famous cobbled village of Clovelly a beautiful woodland walk leads you to the gardens which normally flower a month ahead of the season because they are so well protected from the winds and harsh weather. Fruit-bearing trees include apple and pear, quince, medlar, soft fruit, two mulberry trees and Chinese gooseberry.

About the area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
