A substantial part of your fee contributes to Clovelly's ongoing building maintenance programme. All restoration work is carried out to rigorous standards, with slate being replaced with slate, and oak with oak. It is an expensive process, but it ensures that the village retains the unique charm and character that captivates so many of our visitors.

The steep cobbled, traffic-free, high street of this world famous fishing village, built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff, tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port. It is famous for its donkeys, which traditionally carry goods up the hill; sledges bring things down. There are links with Charles Kingsley, Turner, Dickens and the Spanish Armada.

What everyone remarks upon is the maritime atmosphere, stunning views and the peaceful tranquillity of the village, Unusually, the village is privately owned and has been by the same family since 1738. Their policy is to care for Clovelly and keep it in the style of mid C19th, which involves much quality maintenance using traditional materials and craftmanship.
