Visiting Clovelly

It clings to a 400 foot cliff in North Devon and has no vehicular traffic on its steeply cobbled street, just donkeys and sledges. 

Visiting Clovelly is such a special experience. It is a beautifully picturesque fishing village, steeped in maritime atmosphere and history and was once owned by the Queen of England. Its flower-strewn cottages “tumble like a waterfall” down a cleft in the cliff to the ancient working port.  The breathtaking views, traffic-free street unique with its donkeys and sledges and the working harbour with its 14th century quay are scenes that everyone will capture as a treasured memory. The village has been closed to all mechanical vehicles since the 1920s.

The village is great for families. groups.and educational parties. There is just so much to see and do at Clovelly. We have museums, art studios, two inns and many walks. You can even book a private tour:
