  An old fisherman’s house has been transformed into a ‘living’ museum while ‘Kingsley Museum’ is dedicated to the life of writer Charles Kingsley who lived in the village and helped make the area famous.

He wrote the novels ‘Westward Ho!’ and ‘The Water Babies’ here.

Nearby is the Milky Way Adventure Park based on a working farm. Clovelly Dykes is an impressive hill fort.
