The New Inn at the Heart of Clovelly
There are many exceptional reasons to stay at New Inn. That is apart from the friendly staff, home baking and Bea’s amazing scones.
The Inn has bedrooms that are very cosy and comfortable. Some of them have views of the sea over the roofs and others with views up and down the village.
By stepping back in time here, you will start to feel any stress leaving you, walking down the steep cobbled street to the New Inn in the heart of this ancient village.
If you were to observe photographs of the New Inn from the 1890s, you would see that it lay on the left hand side of the street. This is now the Hamlyn’s Hostel. It has become very popular with visitors wishing to stay over whilst walking along the South West Coastal Path.
In 1910, Christine Hamlyn decided to place the New Inn on the right-hand side of the street and the Arts and Crafts style of the fabled English designer, William Morris, was adopted.
The Inn can provide a porter to take your luggage from the Visitor Centre car park up to 3pm. However you need to call to book a time in advance of your arrival date.
Your luggage will also be taken down on a sledge and back up to the Visitor Centre on the day of your departure.
