Clovelly village, Devon

This picture-postcard fishing villages clings to a steep hillside on the North Devon coast. Its colourful, flower bedecked cottages line the main stepped, cobbled street on such a steep incline that you can almost see down the chimney of the cottage below! Visitors to Clovelly manage the steep cobbled streets to the ancient harbour on foot as traffic is banned from the village. The only other form of transport are sledges, which are used to deliver weekly supplies to the community. There are a wide range of facilities in the village that will enhance the enjoyment of your visit. There is the award winning Clovelly Centre which includes a gift shop, picnic area and self service restaurant. In the village you will find the New Inn and the Fisherman"s Museum and Charles Kingsley Exhibition. In addition, the Clovelly Pottery and the Silk Shop are open seasonally. The famous Red Lion Hotel is dramatically located over the 14th century harbour. Just to the east of Clovelly can be found the delightful seaside hamlet of Bucks Mills. There is a small entrance charge to the village covering parking which contributes to the upkeep of Clovelly.
