Clovelly Village is such a beautiful, peaceful and quaint working fishing village, although there is a £7.95 entrance fee per adult we feel it’s worth it. A few people have rated the village on Tripadvisor and other places low because of the entrance fee but if you are happy to pay you won’t be disappointed. It is a working village, although it’s a visitor attraction people live and work there. I guess the entrance fee puts the wrong type of people off? Once you are through the visitor centre there are a few small craft shops to browse and sometimes you’ll see the donkeys. Start walking down the steep cobbled street which meanders down to the port, there’s a museum along the way, a few shops, cafes, 2 chapels and a hotel and bar at the bottom. I lost several hours wandering around, it was a really wet and dismal day but the village still looked really pretty. Somehow I felt like I had been thrown back in time, I just loved this place. The port was once a busy fishing port famous for its herring and mackerel fishing, now it’s still a fishing port but more famous for lobster and crab fishing. If you are lucky you’ll see the lobster pots stacked up on the quayside. Clovelly is such a unique place and has been the setting for many films and television programmes over the years. A more recent film, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society had parts filmed in the village. Andrea’s top tips Arrive early, the visitor centre and village opens at 10am. Put the postcode in the sat nav and you’ll end up in the right place: EX39 5TL. It feels like you are driving forever down the roads but you’ll end up in the right place. As you arrive at the visitor centre park in the right hand carpark if you have a motorhome or large vehicle rather than the one in front of the visitor centre. There's usually a member of staff to direct you.
