The picturesque, historic, fishing village of Clovelly is uniquely special in that it has no cars on its streets. Donkeys and sledges are the only form of transport along its cobbled ways. Its flower-strewn cottages "tumble like a waterfall" down a cleft in the 400' cliff to the tiny working port and C14th quay.
Its fascinating history, traditional crafts, two museums (Charles Kingsley and Fisherman's Cottage), glorious walks along the cliff tops or boat trips along the coast are a few of Clovelly’s attractions while others lie hidden down tiny winding side alleys just waiting to be discovered
At the Visitor centre there are shops, a cafeteria and a fascinating introductory film show of the history of the village.
The modest entry charge covers entry to the two museums, the A/V film, Clovelly Court Gardens and a contribution to the preservation of this very special private estate.
Yes, dog friendly dogs are welcome on a lead and they can stay in the accommodation overnight with staying guests. Facilities for the usual disposal needs.
Open all year except for Christmas day. Summer times: 09:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Leave the M5 at Junction 27. You will find Clovelly just off the A39 about 10 miles west of Bideford. Turn off at Clovelly Cross mini-roundabout and follow the signs to the Visitor Centre.
