Review of Clovelly by Jacko on August 22nd, 2006
Clovelly is a charming place. I first came here as a nipper in 1960 and fell off one of the donkeys taking me to down to the harbour. Luckily I was not hurt, and it has not stopped me returning at regular intervals. It still holds a fascination for me, but I prefer to walk these days. I can't wait for my next visit.
Money doesn't mind if we say it's evil, it goes from strength to strength. It's a fiction, an addiction, and a tacit conspiracy - Martin Amis
