BEST FOR CLIFF-TOP VIEWS
The serrated bays and cruel cliffs of north Devon, which used to snag passing ships, now thrill those partial to the wild and windy. High on the exposed rump is The Old Chapel at Higher Clovelly, set in nine acres overlooking the sea. A converted Methodist chapel with arched windows, slate floors, oak doors, exposed beams and three bedrooms up a spiral staircase, it is priced at £475,000 through Knight Frank (01392 423111). Below lies Clovelly village, that pile of white cottages and car-free steep cobbled streets so loved by summer visitors.
