“Perfect for short stay on the South West Coast Path walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2009

We had a one night stay here whilst walking a leg of the South West Coast Path. The New House is an extension of the New Inn Hotel in Clovelly, just a few steps across the cobbled street.
It was quite dated and tired but the bed was clean and comfortable and the shared bathroom looked as though it had just been renovated and really at £56 for a double room with breakfast we couldn't complain.
We had a bath which was very welcome after a long walk, there was also a good powerful over the bath shower.
Breakfast the next day was the highlight, we had the usual cereal, fruit and yoghurt but the cooked breakfast was very hearty and well cooked not at all greasy the food was served with a smile which set us up for the day.
The only critism would be of the lady on reception, I don't think she was very happy in her job and would rather of been somewhere else!

The New Inn in the lovely little village of Clovelly, near Bideford, is simply one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in. Stunning location, friendly locals, great food and an excellent room (The Giffard Room) with an awesome sea view to enjoy from the pretty window seat. Our only regret was that we spent just one night here. Would have loved to have spent longer in the tranquil setting .. but we left with some happy memories .. and the hope of returning one day :) Unreservedly recommended!

New Inn Hotel - Clovelly
Date: April 2006
My wife & I wished to have a weekend relaxing in Devon and chose the New Inn as our Hotel. From the minute you start walking down the steep cobbled lane through the quaint village of Clovelly you know it is going to be peaceful. The New Inn Hotel is very welcoming, with an excellent restaurant and a bar frequented by the locals who all make you feel very relaxed. We chose to stay in the room with a balcony looking up the lane, which although not the largest of rooms, was full of character and immaculate and clean.There is little to do in Clovelly which is exactly what we wanted to do except walk for many miles along the well sign posted coastal walks. We would definately stay at the New Inn if we ever stayed in the area in the future. One word of caution, do not try walking up or down the cobbled lane in anything other than trainers or walking boots - some well dressed women in high heeled shoes gave us many a smile whilst we sat on our balcony drinking champagne as they tried to remain ladylike but failed miserably as they did their own funnywalk

I loved this hotel - me and my boyfriend have stayed here twice now, and wouldn't hesitate to return.

On both visits, we have stayed in the annex of the hotel which is across the road from the main building. If you're looking to be self sufficient, but still to have the breakfast from the hotel, this is a really good idea (apart from the communal bathrooms!)

The location of the hotel is perfect, and the room we stayed in had a balcony which overlooked most of the village, and looked out towards the sea!

Breakfast in the hotel was lovely, as was the dinner which we booked separately. There is a pub which adjoins to the main building which is actually really nice...there are only 2 in the village, so you can't be too picky!

The hotel is lovely, and the village is well worth a visit!
