If you want a peaceful break look no further. The New Inn is, as you would expect from Clovelly, a small quaint hotel. The decor is Arts and Crafts in keeping with the architecture which is in some places a little jaded (mainly in the foyer), but would you expect anything else from an 'olde worlde' inn?
We stayed in room two which was bright, warm and well decorated - a lovely touch was the old books available to read on the shelves. We sat for hours relaxing on the window seat, just listening to the local wildlife and birdsong due to the fact that there are no cars within the village. The bathroom was modern and exceptionally clean, so no
We ate our evening meal in the bar, which was basic but again in keeping with the overall feeling of the hotel, and the food was well cooked with plenty on our plates. The staff in both the bar and reception were professional, but informal enough to make us feel very welcome and the full English breakfast, served in the lovely, beamed Hamlyn room watched over by a huge portrait of the Lady Hamlyn herself, was really very good. Nicley cooked and again plenty of it!
If you want a break which is slightly different with a trip back in time, and you are the type to sit and watch the stars ( due to the lack of light pollution) and enjoy the local wildlife. This is the place for you. Thank you New Inn for a welcoming nights stay. We will stay a little longer next time.

We stayed at this hotel as a last min break bank holiday weekend. Hotel was clean, we stayed in the annex and have to say the rooms were basic, but like i say they were clean and we seemed to be only people in this block, so sharing a bathroom didnt really seem a problem. The hotel has beautiful gardens and would make very good wedding pictures on a sunny day. Only down side is that if your walking back to you room after dark it is very dark, and quite scary in places.

When you were in the restaurant the staff were great. Nothing was too much trouble. If you needed any information at reception they were ace. The bus stops are just outside hotel which is great if you need to get into town or just a five minute into town.
