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 Clovelly was the birth place 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 exclamation mark in its name!
Rich in nautical history, Clovelly’s atmosphere is always great and is filled with visitors from across the world. The evenings are so different as it reverts back to a peaceful village of residents. The hotel rooms and its restaurant have been beautifully furnished with subtle hints of the village history. The Red Lion has become very popular for North Devon holidays, family celebrations, short breaks, staycations and honeymoons.
