We are over the moon that we are now stockists of this gorgeous little Steiff donkey. Measuring 20cm high the Dinkie donkey is made of beautifully soft grey and blue plus with a sweet smiling face. He has a grey tufted mane and tufted tail, and would be perfect for children and collectors alike. We are hoping to introduce more Steiff donkey items soon, including the Steiff Eeyore.

We've published a book!! It's our first and features Pablo, the youngest Clovelly donkey, born in June 2020. We wanted to create a bedtime story book for younger children as we have many memories of reading to our children when they were small. Now we are grandparents, and find Clovelly such an enchanting place, we wanted to create a book that featured the donkeys that we love, set in our beautiful village. We envisaged the book to be beautifully illustrated, being passed down from parents to children, to grandchildren. Thankfully we met a very talented illustrator, Lyn Stone, who was able to help us bring our vision alive by coming to Clovelly, taking lots of photos, and sketching the donkeys...
We're very pleased to be open again for the summer season. We've made some changes to the layout of our shop, bought in some new products that we hope will appeal to adults and children, and developed an Activity Area in the second floor of our shop. We have been planning our activity area for several months, as it was part of dream to develop an area for the younger visitors to Clovelly, to enhance their experience, and give them a break from the cobbles!!
As the daffodils are adorning the woodlands, the birds are singing and the days are getting longer, we are working on making our shop even better, giving more choice and selecting items such as beautiful pieces of jewellery that would be a special reminder of a lovely holiday or day out. We are also working on our activity area for the children on the first floor, as we would to provide a play area for the younger children visiting Clovelly as a chance to have a break from the cobbles. We are very much looking forward to opening on the 2nd April for the summer season, and meeting the many visitors that come to visit our beautiful village.
We are so pleased our online shop is launched and we are looking forward to fulfilling orders for our lovely items that we sell in our shop. We will be constantly adding new items, including gifts for adults, and traditional games for children. If you have any questions about our collections please let us know using the contact page.
