In this sleepy town, Jana's tour really brought the Clovelly experience to life. She is friendly, informative and passionate in what she does. She was very punctual and efficient at responding to all our queries regarding the tour. What was meant to be a one-hour (ish) tour turned into much longer because Jana was just so passionate about telling us... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. It was lovely to meet you and a pleasure to give you a tour of Clovelly. I am sorry that you found Clovelly a bit boring and uninspiring but I need to say that the time of year you visited was responsible for it being so quiet and... More

Our visit to Clovelly would certainly not have been so enjoyable had we not been guided by Jana. Her tour comes highly recommended. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the village, she is also very pleasant company. As far as we are concerned the tour is a "must" when visiting Clovelly. Very educational and extremely interesting. We would have... More

A fantastic mornings educational entertainment. Much explained and much learned. Really given a feel for life both past and present in this well known ex fishing village. Jana clearly enjoys her role as guide and is a fantastic advert for the spirit of the community.

My boyfriend took me to Clovelly for my birthday this year, as he knew it from what he was a kid. I was looking for things to do and found this tour. Jana met us outside the visitor centre, dressed in period costume. It was just the 2 of us and her and it was a lovely walk down to... More

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
