Mount Pleasant

From the craft workshops, and as you approach the top of the cobbled village street, you will pass Mount Pleasant. This grassy knoll, known locally as Peace Park, is a popular picnic spot with visitors to Clovelly. There are seats with spectacular views across Bideford Bay, and a memorial to Clovelly residents who died in the First World War. Mount Pleasant was donated to the National Trust in 1921 by Clovelly benefactor Mrs Christine Hamlyn, for the use of the village in perpetuity, her gift commemorated on a plaque.
Further down the cobbles are Mount Pleasant cottages, one of which used to be a bank.
A small shelter has been restored as a place to stop and enjoy views across Bideford Bay. (Wheelchair accessible)
