The New Inn has welcomed visitors since the 17th century.

The New Inn is in the very heart of Clovelly, lying half way down the famous cobbled street. From its inception in the 17th Century, it has had a colourful life having been rebuilt and refurbished many times. Yet it has stayed faithful to the original style of the fabled English designer, William Morris’ Arts and Crafts.  Many famous people have passed over the threshold, from authors, artists, actors to Prime ministers.

The New Inn is a choice for day visitors and for North Devon holidays and short breaks. The bedrooms are bright and airy and full of individual character following the arts and craft design and these days they each have en-suite bathrooms. Eight rooms offer sea or village views. One has its own private balcony with delightful views of ‘Up-a-Long’ the cobbled street. Three others open out onto a spacious balcony that also overlooks the street, ‘Up-a-Long’ and ‘Down-a-Long’.
