Bed and Breakfast, Bideford B&B
New Inn Hotel Clovelly
Originally built in the C17th, the New Inn at Clovelly can honestly claim to be unique, for where else can you stay in pampered luxury, the only 'traffic sounds' being footsteps and the occasional donkeys' hooves on an ancient cobbled street? And where else is your luggage brought to the hotel on a sledge?
All 8 en suite bedrooms at the New Inn are bright, airy and superbly furnished in the style of William Morris. Because of the age of the building, each room has its very own individual character. Seven feature sea views over Bideford Bay towards Saunton Sands and Braunton, 10 miles away. These range from panoramic vistas to sea glimpses. The eighth bedroom has its own private balcony from which there is a delightful view of Clovelly's world famous cobbled street. Three rooms open out onto a long balcony overlooking the street.
The New House opposite the hotel offers budget accommodation with full use of the hotel bar, restaurant and other facilities.
Parking is at the Visitor Centre and your luggage can be transported to the hotel by sledge.
Clovelly is probably the most photographed village in Devon. It is a fantastically picturesque, historic, fishing village clinging to the sides of a cleft in the 400' cliff above the C14th working harbour. The village has its own visitor centre and car park at the top and it is possible to take the Land Rover service from here to the harbour and back.
Clovelly is traffic-free. The famous Clovelly donkeys traditionally carry goods up the hill while sledges bring them down.
Bideford is a pleasant town to visit, the town is centred on the river Torridge, with some nice pubs and restaurants. It is a good base for exploring the region.
Hartland Abbey is another nearby attraction. Historic family home set in a valley leading to the sea. Fine porcelain, pictures, furniture and beautiful gardens.
The Big Sheep - North Devons all-weather attraction
The Milky Way - The Milky Way theme park has something for all the family

Lundy Island, 10 miles off the coast lies the nature reserve island of Lundy. The island can be reached by chartering a boat from Clovelly or on the MV Oldenburg from Bideford. Day trips and longer stays are available
An attractive fishing town situated right on the Estuary of the rivers Torridge and Tor. It is a town steeped in history, growing up as a fishing village, the tiny streets and cottages dating back hundreds of years are still well preserved, although many of the old stores in market street have closed as people tend to shop in the Supermarkets in Bideford.
Many of the older cottages are now holiday lets, and the town is heavily dependant on the seasonal holiday trade. Despite this, Appledore is still worth a visit.
