There has been a charge to visit Clovelly since 1926!
Like most historical landmarks (e.g. National Trust sites), we heavily rely on the entrance fee for the essential maintenance and upkeep that comes with an ancient village perched on a 400ft cliff, with no vehicular access.
Your entrance fee includes:
• Entry to the village
• Entry to Clovelly Court Gardens
• Entry to the Fisherman’s Cottage and Kingsley Museum
• Audio-visual experience
• General Facilities
• Access to the walks and beauty spots surrounding the area
Your entry fee also goes towards our tree planting and conservation initiatives that you can see around the Clovelly Estate.
