About Clovelly

This ancient fishing village is mentioned in the Doomsday book (c.1100 A.D.) and it is probable that a settlement existed even in Saxon times.

A 16th century lawyer, George Cary, built the stone harbour quay, establishing Clovelly as the only safe harbour between Boscastle in Cornwall and Appledore. The small harbour has sheltered up to 60 fishing boats, but due to the decline of the herring fishery this has now dwindled to a handful of small boats.
