Clovelly – at the heart of your North Devon holiday

Imagine life without cars. In Clovelly you can. Come along to this picturesque village, one of Devon’s major tourist attractions, and you’ll enjoy a unique experience of a bygone age, a time when people lived a more tranquil way of life. No vehicles are allowed down the steep cobbled street, and you leave your car at the top of the hill by the Clovelly Visitor Centre.

The award-winning Visitor Centre is where you begin your tour of the village. It’s modelled on a traditional Devon long barn, and the interior is light and spacious. You’ll find a popular café restaurant where you can enjoy a cappuccino and a tempting cake, and you can sit out on the terrace and savour the fresh sea air and amazing views of the North Devon coast and Bideford Bay.

Your entrance fee to the village covers the following:

  • a film show introducing you to Clovelly’s fascinating history

  • two museums – the Kingsley Museum and the Fisherman’s Cottage

  • Clovelly Court Gardens

  • Parking

  • Visit during one of our annual festivals (such as Seaweed in June, Maritime in July, Lobster & Crab in September and Herrring in November) and there's no extra charge.  Please visit for all events and dates.

A substantial part of your fee contributes to Clovelly’s ongoing building maintenance programme. All restoration work is carried out to rigorous standards, with slate being replaced with slate, and oak with oak. It is an expensive process, but it ensures that the village retains the unique charm and character that captivates so many of our visitors.
