A short walk from the foot of Clovelly village to the bottom of the cliffs leads to a small pebble beach. It’s well worth venturing down for two reasons, firstly the unforgettable views across the estuary and secondly as a stunning waterfall cascades from the top of the cliff to the sea.
A cave behind the waterfall adds still more atmosphere to this dramatic spot, and some claim that this was the birthplace of the Arthurian magician Merlin! Ok, so not all of you will leave convinced of that, but it's easy to see why this spot inspires legends (and they make entertaining conversation points with the kids). Although not the longest Clovelly walks, the sights make this one of the most rewarding.
