Summary

The New Inn is uniquely situated in the heart of picturesque Clovelly and has welcomed visitors since the C17th. Rebuilt and refurbished over the years, it remains decorated in the Arts and Crafts style. Its eight bedrooms have either sea views or balconies overlooking the village. There is also so much to do and see at Clovelly.

What makes a stay at New Inn unique?

Peaceful .. idyllic .. quaint .. relaxing .. unique. These are some of the most often repeated words in the visitors' book. The only 'traffic sounds' you will hear are footsteps or donkeys' hooves upon the ancient cobbled street. Dogs are welcome in one bedroom.

What style cuisine is on offer at New Inn?

Delicious, home-cooked British classics and a variety of real ales. Bea, the manager, is a passionate home baker so the cream teas with baked scones are thoroughly enjoyable.

What is the signature dish at New Inn?

Rump steak with chips, onion rings, mushrooms and tomatoes.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at New Inn?

The New Inn has eight cosy, ensuite bedrooms including a family room and a single room. All the furniture and decorations have been carefully selected to reflect the grace of the Arts and Crafts era. Hamlyn's breakfast and afternoon tea room is light and airy with a portrait of Christine Hamlyn in her wedding dress on the wall. The Up Along Bar serves the lunches and dinners. If a room is booked in the Hamlyn's B&B opposite, you have access to all the New Inn's facilities.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Bideford area?

When staying at Clovelly, view the film show of the history of the village, watch skilled craftspeople in the workshops creating silk and pottery, visit the Charles Kingsley and Fisherman's Cottage museums, Clovelly Court Gardens at the top of the village and see the famous donkeys and harbour. Take a boat trip along the coast or a fishing trip or book a trip to Lundy. One of the best ways to appreciate the stunning setting of Clovelly is to stroll along Hobby Drive and the coastal path in the opposite direction to Mouthmill also gives breathtaking views.

New Inn is part of the following Travel Ideas:

Great pet friendly hotels in the UK by Adrian Mourby

"It’s not surprising that Clovelly’s New Inn is pet friendly. Clovelly is very a four-legged village. Donkeys do the daily deliveries to this pub set on a steep street above the harbour. This tiny Devon fishing port saw its population decline from over 600 in 1901 to around 400 a century later and even today the streets are too steep for cars, which means that there is no better way to get luggage and supplies to the New Inn than on a donkey sled. Dogs are welcome at this eight-room hotel but it’s advisable to ring ahead to check your canine requirements."

Amazing
We booked and got the last dog friendly room. Let me assure you it is very dog friendly. Our room was very clean and spacious. Right from the start the staff were amazing and friendly. We ate both nights at the inn and the food was simple but delicious, egg, ham, chips always is a hit! Recommend the pie too, really scrumptious. Thia our Pomsky was allowed to eat dinner with us and for breakfast we had a little table to ourselves in the upstairs lounge as dogs weren’t allowed in the breakfast area ( for obvious reasons) The breakfast was amazing. Generous portions and freshly cooked. Thia even got her own fry up just for her. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and my husband learned a great deal whilst chatting to locals in the bar.
To sum up, Thia gives the New Inn a big 5 Paws up! Loved it. RUFF!!!!!!

Weekend break away.
Stayed in the New Inn and was made very welcome. Rooms were lovely and clean and location perfect.

As we visited in December the village had a great Christmas Vibe.

Infact Clovelly itself is lovely overall.

Will return again one day.

5* Great Food. After a wander around Clovelly in the cold it was great to step into the pub, warm up and have a lovely, relaxing meal. Bliss. J.N. London

Staff were very helpful with queries pre visit, hotel clean and staff very friendly, nice atmosphere. Provided large breakfast (with gluten free option), would set you up well if wanting to do coastal walking from there. Difficult access (but we knew that in advance) having to walk down the steep cobbled streets of Clovelly. Only downside was we hadn't realised that everything in Clovelly shuts at 5pm when the visitors centre at the top does.

Very pleasant stay in a traditional inn in a unique village. Despite poor North Devon weather, the inn staff made our stay enjoyable. It certainly made us appreciate how difficult it is, living on a steep hill with no vehicles, plus cobbles!
Not for the faint hearted or infirm, however!

Lovely stay:
Stayed for two-night anniversary break. Loved the hotel although the hill can be a challenge, especially after the massive breakfast they give you. Food was good and tasted homemade. Have booked to return !!

Two night at a very friendly hotel. Our room no 7 was very clean and well fitted. Great food during our two-night stay. We were a group of eight and all of us enjoyed our stay. A special thank to the barman.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We were not disappointed, it was a charming b&b and full of the history of Clovelly. It has been kept in keeping with the village. Parking is situated up at the visitor centre and you simply let them know there that you are staying at the New Inn which includes your fee for visiting the village. We were lucky to have an adjoining balcony which was fabulous as we could look down on the cobbled street and picturesque village. We decided to do a tour with Jana who was very passionate about the village and gave us a wonderful tour. We would definitely recommend the New Inn as a place to stay.

My travelling friends and I stayed at the New Inn. My wife and I visited the hotel forty-four years ago. Clovelly and the New Inn really hadn't changed. The rooms are still comfortable, the bathrooms updated. The Inn and the town of Clovelly were truly made for each other.

Half way up (or down) the pedestrian-only Clovelly hill stands the New Inn. We stayed in a room with a delightful balcony and were blessed by weather that allowed us to sit out with the tea we had made with the room facilities. The room was on the small side but full of character, especially with the small patio door open and the muslin curtains stirring in the breeze. A roomy bathroom and large bath were en-suite. The breakfast was excellent (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian) and was served in a light and gracious room with a high beamed ceiling. A good walking and short break venue.
Stayed April 2017, travelled as a couple.

Were lucky to get a room at the New Inn over Easter..... Fantastic room, very comfortable and warm. Great dinner and a very good breakfast. The New Inn is full of character..... Friendly staff and patrons in the small bar.
