Shopping in Clovelly is pure retail therapy.  Clovelly Pottery,  Clovelly Silk, Clovelly Soap and Donkey Shoe Shop all have unique and exclusive handmade products. Walking down the village, taking in the shops and the living history of this unique place is a wonderful way to spend a day out.

Donkey Shoe Shop

A traditional little shop featuring unique items and collectables to remind visitors of an enjoyable day in our beautiful village, or perhaps buy something for friends and family back home.

Inspiration for the Donkey Shoe Shop came from the love of the donkeys who live at Clovelly, and who played a very important part in the history of the village. You can also adopt a Clovelly Donkey on their website.

Rex Whistler’s Clovelly Toile de Jouy

Celebrated artist, illustrator and muralist Rex Whistler (1905-1944), was a frequent visitor to Clovelly Court and was commissioned by Christine Hamlyn to develop his sketches into a textile design in a beautiful Toile de Jouy style. You can buy this beautiful fabric exclusively from the Clovelly Silk Shop.


This charming textile design takes its name from the steep, traffic-free, cobbled street in Clovelly.
The street is traditionally called ‘Down-a-long’ when you walk down it, and ‘Up-a-long’ when you walk up it!
