Arriving here was like arriving at a favourite Aunt's house. It is not scrubbed up and shiny but just a real homely feel and lovely hosts. Breakfast was fabulous and when I wanted it. I really could have done with a bath but no plug. However the shower was fine. It was not ensuite, the bathroom was across the hall.... More

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. Due to traffic we unfortunately arrived there quite late (10.30pm), which the very friendly hosts kindly agreed... More

Easy to find, on the left, as you go down the hill. Shower across the hall. There is a bath, but there is no plug, and the hot water dribbles out anyway. There is a washbasin in the room, and a heater, which was already switched on (nice touch), having booked in advance, but no TV, and no bedside tables... More

staying in car-free Clovelly overnight is a unique experience. Avoid paying the entry fee and be there when the coach trip crowds aren't! Donkeyshoe Cottage is as charming as the name suggests, a friendly B&B. The double bedroom is surprisingly spacious, but the accommodation is a bit scruffy and the bathroom is shared not ensuite. But the price is reasonable... More

You can get a travelodge for the same price per night but you won't get the warm welcome, the comfy beds and the decent breakfast that you get here. 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.
