In earlier times The Roundhouse would have been Alive to the sound of oxen, and later, horses walking round and round tethered to the grinding wheel grinding out the corn for use on the farm and for the local merchants.

The building you see today has been completely rebuilt, the original building having collapsed. Much of the character has been retained with the use of the original stones in the renovation. There has been a farm on this site since the 13th century and formed part of a flourishing community providing all the needs of the local people.

Close by is the fishing village of Clovelly where the cobbled street leads down to the harbour. Here the locals would have met to barter their produce with the fishermen for freshly landed herring.
