How steep is the street? How long will it take to walk down and up? Can we bring a children’s buggy?

Our famous cobbled street is 20% steep and can be slippery, so do wear sensible footwear.

You should allow around two to three hours for a visit to include lunch or a cream tea. Why not break the stroll back up the hill with refreshments stops, as well as visits to the gift shops, museums, craft workshops and donkey stables.

Visitors with prams and buggies may well find it a struggle. Most of the young families who live in Clovelly rely on baby slings and child carriers to walk up or down the cobbles.
