About

World-famous Clovelly is a true gem of North Devon, offering staggering views across Bideford Bay and a more relaxed way of life. The picturesque historic houses can be found winding their way down the wooded hillside, to the traditional fishing harbour on the coast. As part of a privately owned family estate, no vehicles are allowed down the steep cobbled street, instead, goods are transported by sledge, often pulled by donkeys.

 

Learn more about Clovelly’s unique history with a guided tour, or take in one of the many acclaimed events throughout the year; this includes the annual Herring Festival in November, designed to promote the ‘silver darlings of the sea’. Enjoy seasonal local produce at the Red Lion on the harbour, or dine at the New Inn in the heart of the village, pick up a souvenir at the craft studios, or take a stroll along the coast path to Clovelly Court Gardens. Either way, this is one place not to miss.
