Clovelly Village

Clovelly, one of the prettiest villages in England

During your stay at Highcliffe House, consider visiting the charming village of Clovelly. Most of our guests who visit say it’s absolutely stunning and well worth the drive.

Carved into a steep Devon hillside, Clovelly is one of the most famous villages in North Devon. Its cobbled high street ambles steeply downwards passing the most quaint 16th-century cottages and shops. Once you’ve reached the bottom of the high street you’re rewarded with the most beautiful sea and harbour views.

There are no roads here and the only forms of transport you will see are sledges and donkeys. Walking up and down is the only way you can see this exquisite treasure.

However, for those who do not want to walk back up, there is a fare-paying Land Rover to return you to the top of the village, at the main entrance. Part of the modest entry charge contributes to the maintenance of the village to preserve its timeless charm and magic.
