My Son and daughter in law with my 4 and 6 year old grandaughters. plus my sister (60's). One Jack Russell. We really enjoyed the experience. This was something that we had wanted to see and we were not disappointed. Enjoyed cream tea in the pub and Crab sandwiches at the harbour. Grandaughters went for the Donkey rides and thoroughly...

It's many years since we last visited Clovelly. At the time our now grown up children were young and we really enjoyed the quaint cottages and interesting shops dotted along the steep cobbled slope to the harbour. In July my wife and I were staying near Exmoor and we decided to visit the place on a wave of nostalgia. Imagine... More

I have wanted to visit for ages and it doesn't disappoint! It is stunning although very busy and quite expensive. The only downside for us was arriving about lunch time with hungry children so we thought we would be clever and eat in the cafe at the top - big mistake - really expensive and quite horrible pasties. The cheese... More

Wow. My folks had enjoyed this place decades ago. Now it was my turn to visit. Unlike other places they had raved about (and had disappointed us to varying degrees), Clovelly was much, much better than we imagined. My other half and I were driving from Bath to Port Isaac and Clovelly was to be our sight seeing activity on... More

We have been to Clovelly many times over the years , so this year we thought we would take the Grandchildren and their parents . To our surprise we had to pay to see the village and it was not cheap we paid about £30 for 4 adults and two children - there were no concessions for OAP's or for... More

Whilst on holiday we asked for recommendations for places to visit. Someone recommend Clovelly village. We arrived not knowing what to expect and we were stunned by the beauty of the place. We made a slow descent to the start of the main street, once we turned the corner to see the main street running down to the harbour I... More

What a wonderful day we had. A big thank you to the gentleman in the silk shop for kindly giving us a pencil so that my daughter could complete the questionnaire. Well worth a visit

Always a magic place to visit. Have known it for years. Completely unique. A step back in time, wonderfully intimate, fabulous views. Good places to eat and places to go for walks in the surrounding area, too. Don't go in high heels, though, ladies, or the cobbles will defeat you!

Went to Clovelly for the first time since childhood and was amazed at how much it had changed the shop and cafe were lovely the walk down the cobbles was hard going but a lovely steady pace. Would definitely returns as didn't go into the houses. Got the landrover back to the top. Weather was super and very hot
