Welcome to the The Red Lion

 It’s a lovely AA 4 star Inn standing on the 14th Century quay. 

The Red Lion hotel building is 18th century. Then simply a cider and beer house where Clovelly fishermen gathered to swap their tales of the one that got away.

Few people know that The Red Lion was the birthplace of the sailor, Salvation Yeo. He is a character in Charles Kingsley’s classic West Country novel “Westward Ho!”.  This is the novel that inspired the building and creation of the only village in the UK to have an explanation mark in its name. Consequently it has taken its hame from the book of the same name.  Rich in nautical history, the atmosphere is always great as during the it fills with visitors from all across the world. The evening are so different as it always reverts back to the favourite stoning ground of todays locals. The   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.
