September Events in Clovelly
We have some fabulous events running out of Clovelly this September so if you making the most of the tail end of summer, why not join us for one of these! We still have some availability for all these events but they are going fast.
Set into a steep hillside, Clovelly is one of the best known and most unusual villages in the North Devon. The cobbled high street winds its way down the hillside through traditional 16th century whitewashed cottages decked with fuchsias and geraniums. This street drops 400ft in the half mile down to the small harbour.
Vehicles are prohibited from the main street and for centuries, donkeys were the mainstay of public transport. Sadly, these have now been retired in favour of a less romantic Land Rover but the donkeys are still here although they now have a significantly more relaxed lifestyle!
There are no holiday cottages allowed in the main village and no concessions to the tourist industry. Consequently, the picture postcard village is still a living village, where fishermen still mend their nets on the quay.
Irene and Clovelly
Irene has had a strong connection with Clovelly over the past few years. Our chef is one of the small number of residents of this village and we spend a month based here each year. We are keen supporters of the village events and love our time here!
This year we are spending September based here, running day trips and longer voyages. We are also helping the village celebrate it's fabulous Crab and Lobster Festival with our very own Lobster Extravaganza!
We still have some availability so if you fancy getting involved, seeing some of this stunning village and having a sail on a ship which has been plying her trade along these shores for over 100 years, then please get in touch.
September 4th sees Clovelly hosting its annual Crab and Lobster festival.
Join the crew of Irene to celebrate this with a fabulous five course, lobster themed feast complete with some great wines.
No need to worry about driving home either. Stay overnight with us in one of our en-suite cabins for bed and breakfast.
September 4th - 5th
Join us for a day's sailing around the stunning north Devon coast.
Help the crew hoist the sails, helm the ship and trim the jibs.
Alternatively, sit back and watch the coastline drift slowly by as you enjoy the hospitality on board.
September 7th, 8th, 14th & 15th
Join us for a three day voyage as we explore the north Devon coast and take in the fascinating Lundy Island.
