The Sail Loft

This building has had many uses down the years. It has been a dwelling, a grain store, a cobbler’s shop, and was once used for storage for the Coastguard gig.
With the decline of Clovelly’s fishing fleet, it fell into disrepair. It has now been sensitively restored using materials sourced from the West Country. There are six stylish bedrooms, beautifully furnished, each offering glorious views across the bay. To the side and below are fishermen’s cellars, cold rooms, flake ice machines and tanks for storing live shellfish – facilities especially created so that sustainable fishing can continue at Clovelly.
