Clovelly Court Gardens

A classic example of a lovingly restored Victorian walled kitchen garden to visit in North Devon

When you visit Clovelly, do visit Clovelly Court Gardens too (included in the entry fee to Clovelly village). Tender and exotic plants thrive in this sheltered sunny corner of North Devon, which has the added benefit of its sheltered position in the Bristol Channel and the warmth the Gulf Stream brings. Clovelly Court Gardens are a classic example of a lovingly restored Victorian walled kitchen garden including magnificent lean-to glasshouses with their original levers. Peaches, apricots, nectarines, vines (including muscat grapes), citrus fruit, figs, cucumbers, peppers, chillies, aubergines and tomatoes can be bought, in season, together with cut flowers and pot plants from the nursery.

Esplaier fan and cordon fruit trees line the walls enclosing the garden, which also shelter vegetables grown to organic principles and in rotation, ensuring sweet tasting and wholesome produce for sale.

On your stroll through the gardens you will see a blue gate towards the end, which leads out on to Clovelly Court Great Terrace where, on a clear day, you can enjoy a view of of Lundy and a sweeping vista of Bideford Bay.

You’ll find these old walled gardens a contrast to the rest of the village, so do go along and enjoy their beauty. Protected from the winds and bounded by an avenue of lofty lime trees, they are usually a month ahead of the season – but you’ll find that there’s always something to see and enjoy at any season of the year. So why not include a visit as part of a winter weekend break or short spring holiday at the Red Lion or the New Inn, Clovelly’s two prestigious hotels?

Opening times:  1st April to 30th September from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. 

Wheelchair accessible.

Entry charge to the gardens only is £3 per adult.  Children (under 16) free. RHS members free (1 member only) in March and October.  Please note that admission charges to Clovelly Village include the gardens too.
