In September 2014, we had a village tour of Clovelly, Devon, England led by Jana Edwards. Dressed in period costume, she explained that the village had been there in Saxon times and had become depressed after the fishing was depleted. The lady of the manor gradually restored the cottages so that it became a tourist attraction and also preserved the... More

What a beautiful village, steeped in history, brought alive by Jana our tour guide. An experience not to be missed and thoroughly recommended. Jana's knowledge was excellent and made our visit to Clovelly so memorable. Thank you

Clovelly is in itself a very beautiful Village but to have it brought alive by Jana is an experience we will hold in our hearts forever. Very rarely do you meet someone with the passion and dedication to her task that Jana possesses. Her knowledge of the village and it's history is second to none Jana also has a great... More

We booked the tour and it was 4 adults and our 3 year old son. Jana was absolutely amazing and so lovely. She dresses in traditional Devon clothes from the turn of the century and she really brings the village to life with her stories of Christine Hamlyn who was the matriarch of Clovelly. She was really patient with our... More

If you visit Clovelly, one of Jana's tours is simply a must! We had a hugely informative tour of the village with a wealth of background information as we walked which made it all the more enjoyable. Jana, thank you so much, Martin & Arantxa

My new husband and I tried to email Jana the night before we left Chagford for Clovelly but we had no wifi once we left the next morning- and knew we had left it all too late. We were philosophical about it, knowing we'd enjoy the visit anyway. As it turned out Jana was outside the lineup as we waited... More

Went to Clovelly in Devon with my husband and son and thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour. It was £3 extra per person in your party but was well worth the money - we walked round as a family not part of a big group. The lady was very friendly and answered all our questions (including my enthusiastic 13 year old... More

Jana Edwards has immersed herself in Clovelly's storied past, and reveals it passionately as she leads you down the cobbled steps to the ancient harbor below.. She piques your interest and encourages your own discovery of a centuries old fishing village nestled in the cliffs overlooking a sometimes treacherous sea. This tour is a must for those who want to... More

Jana's tour made our trip to Clovelly so much more worthwhile. Her knowledge of its history helped the place come alive. It made our visit more meaningful and enjoyable to learn about the families that have owned the village and the benefactor who saved it from ruin.
