The Clovelly Estate

The Clovelly Estate

Clovelly, North Devon, is a picturesque, historic, fishing village, steeped in maritime atmosphere and history, once owned by the Queen of England.  This atmosphere is embodied in a traffic-free, cobbled street with flower-strewn cottages tumbling down a cleft in the 400-foot cliff to the ancient fishing harbour and 14th-century quay bringing glorious views along the way.

There are many literary connections;  Charles Kingsley lived here, Charles Dickens wrote about it and Rex Whistler featured it in much of his work.

The modest admission charges include parking, a must-see film show of the history of the village, access to craft workshops, two museums, seeing the famous donkeys, two welcoming inns, Clovelly Court Gardens and a contribution to the preservation of this very special private estate.
