Fisherman’s Cottage

Walk along the path by the side of the Kingsley Museum, and you’ll come to this pretty cottage.
Built of cob and stone, it is packed with information and old photographs, and gives 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, including simple cottage furniture, colourful pictures and homely ornaments. The tiny kitchen is full of period charm. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a sail loft, and an attic complete with straw mattresses. A cob wall in the downstairs room has been left unplastered to show how it was made.
