Welcome to the The Red Lion

The Red Lion Hotel stands on the quay alongside Clovelly’s ancient harbour

The building dates back to the 18th century, when it was a beer house where Clovelly fishermen gathered to swap their tales.

The Red Lion was the birthplace of the sailor, Salvation Yeo, a character in Charles Kingsley’s classic West Country novel “Westward Ho!”. Rich in nautical history, atmosphere and has been beautifully finished with subtle hints of the villages history.  

The Red Lion has become very popular for North Devon holidays, family celebrations, short breaks, stay-cations and Honeymoons.
