Clovelly

The cobbled, traffic-free, high street of this world famous fishing village in North Devon, 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.

"My wife and I stayed two nights in room 8, lovely room with a comfortable bed and all the space you'd need for a couple of nights. Ate in the bar on our first night and the whitebait and lasagna were good. Ate in the restaurant on the second night and the food was sublime, starters of mussels for me and sea trout for my wife, my pork belly was wonderful and my wife had the duck, which was equally as good. Iced peanut butter parfait rounded off whilst i had the cheeseboard. Along with breakfast the food could not be faulted. Staff were friendly and attentive. Altogether, hoops inn is thoroughly recommended. " Nov 2012
