Can we visit any of the village cottages?

Clovelly is a ‘living’ village with a thriving community of residents living in the beautiful white-washed cottages situated along the famous cobbled street, but there is one fascinating cottage which is well worth a visit and will offer you valuable insights into Clovelly’s rich fishing past.

The Fisherman’s Cottage is packed with fascinating information and old photographs that give a vivid picture of Clovelly’s fishing heritage.

Inside you can see how a Clovelly fisherman and his family lived in the 1930s. The parlour is decorated with domestic treasures of the period, including simple cottage furniture, colourful pictures and religious engravings, and china and ornaments. The tiny kitchen is plain but full of period charm. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one small and the other still smaller, a sail loft, and an attic complete with straw mattresses.

If you walk along the side alley by the Kingsley Museum cottage, just a few yards down from the New Inn, you’ll see the pretty little Fisherman’s Cottage, a very special North Devon attraction.
