Clovelly, with its steep cobbled streets is like stepping back in a time warp. The picturesque cottages and tea rooms, small garden courtyards and well kept properties are a credit to all who live and work there. The scenery is breathtaking and a word of warning for the less agile amongst us - the streets are very steep indeed and its a long walk back up. Be prepared to take your time here. In all honesty, it shouldn't be rushed anyway.
The fishing quay can trace its origins back to the 14th century as do many of the cottages and buildings in Clovelly. This is a working fishing village and whilst much of the income may now be derived from tourism, fishing still takes place here. In common with much of this coastline smuggling and shipwrecks were common place.
