My wife and I stayed here on Friday - Saturday (1st - 2nd November).
It's a largish farmhouse in the country with plenty of parking. Inside it's a genuine, cozy and clearly, a much-loved home. We were met by Helen, the most wonderful host / owner who genuinely cannot do enough for you. She showed us to our room (room 2) which was just perfect – I won't repeat other reviews here.
After our five hour drive to get there, then a couple of hours walking down into Clovelly itself, we got back to the farmhouse, opened a bottle of wine, got into the softest and most comfortable bed and stayed there from 6.45 pm until 9.30am!
Breakfast was a delight and there were three courses on offer. Practically anything you could wish for was on the menu. Helen was the perfect host and the food set us up until tea time (no room for lunch!).
I don't normally give a blanket five out of five (because if we go back and it's even better then we can't improve our rating!) but I'll make an exception in this case :-)
