Visit world famous Clovelly

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 A/V film to 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.

All year round there is a calendar of wonderful events.  See for all details, including visitor's centre admission charges and opening times.
