A lovely stay we were made to feel part of the family, we will be returning next year! The Donkey Shoe Cottage was ideally situated half way up on the famous cobbled street. Breakfast was served at a time that suited us- we are early risers.

The twin room that we got (at a pretty good price too) was actually beter than a twin, as the second bed was in its own, separate little room, with its own window overlooking the charming cobbled street and a glorious sea view.

But the price is reasonable... More

Situated on the steep Clovelly High Street, Donkey Shoe Cottage is a quaint Oldy Woldy building that has so much (good) character. Yes the bathroom on the first floor is shared,... More

Lovely little cottage B&B right on Clovellys steep high street. Comfy and cosey with a very warm welcome from the young couple in charge. Got a real old fashioned feel to the place. Had a superb breakfast.
