Our COVID-19 measures:
We've put extensive planning into our covid19 strategy and reopening which will shortly be published on our website and forthcoming app. We've also arranged for Torridge District Council to inspect our village next week before we reopen to check if we've missed anything. We've built an app which will shortly be published on the Google and Apple store to enable contactless ordering of food and accommodation and built an online ticketing system for advance purchase of tickets which will help us to responsibly manage the number of visitors to the village at any one time.


The Clovelly Estate covers hundreds of acres of ancient woodland forming a ribbon along the coast, steeped in history and located within the UNESCO Biosphere that stretches from the highlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor, down the river valleys to the sea and beyond Lundy, and is at the heart of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There’s no place like it, built around a fishing community almost 1,000 years ago. Home to a tight knit community and perched on the edge of a cliff, we think it’s the most beautiful place in the world.

About the area

Discover Devon

With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.

Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them. 

Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
