Discover the timeless village of Clovelly with its steep cobbled streets, gleaming white cottages and tiny deep-blue harbour.....

A unique place on the rugged North Devon coast. What other village has no cars and no individually owned houses? Clovelly is owned by one family (one of only three since the Norman Conquest of 1066) - and the task of caring for it and its heritage is a costly business, especially as the buildings are still repaired with traditional materials.  Your admission fees help to keep the village maintained and plays a vital role in keeping Clovelly so charming and special. There are no vehicles on its steepely cobbled street, just donkeys and man hauled sledges. The main street tumbles past gleaming white cottages festooned with flowers down to the fishing harbour and 14th century quay where boat trips along the coast depart. There are two museums (entry included), craft workshops, souvenier shops and two pubs providing food and drink. Your ticket also includes admission to Clovelly Court Gardens located near to the visitor centre.

The award winning visitor centre, where we are greeted on arrival, is modelled on a traditional Devon long barn and houses a cafe, shops and 20 minute audio-visual film which tells the village's fascinating story.  Be aware that the High Street is steep, cobbled and can be slippery - so wear sensible footwear. A Land Rover shuttle service is available to take visitors between the visitor centre and quayside (fare payable on the day) if you think the walk down/up the steep street is too challenging.
