Built in the 1800s and steeped in history, the Smugglers Rest Bed and Breakfast has been welcoming visitors for over 100 years. Nestled at the entrance to the quaint coastal village of Mortehoe, just a short walk away from one of Europe’s best beaches at Woolacombe, this historic building has recently undergone external renovations under the care of new owners Stacey and Will to transform the tired looking building into a fresh faced bed and breakfast.
The unrivalled countryside and multitude of winding coastal paths starting immediately outside The Smugglers Rest’s doorstep just beg to be explored. Why not let us help make your al fresco exploits even more memorable with our selection of packed picnics and travel hampers, available to pre-order with or without champagne… we’ll even supply you with a picnic blanket, so all you need to bring is your hiking boots and your sense of adventure.
The Smugglers Rest offers 8 spacious en suite rooms, boasting stunning views across the countryside. Breakfast is of course served in the comfortable surroundings of Miss Fea’s Cafe, and well behaved dogs are warmly welcomed!
Stacey and Will have spruced up the rooms to bring them to life, with new toiletries, linen, towels and a few other little luxuries worth seeing for yourself. Our suite rooms accommodate families with children and we have dog friendly rooms available too, for your house-trained dogs.
The building is also home to the new Miss Fea’s Café, which offers a host of delicious morsels for you to eat as well as Artisan coffees and specialty teas. Lets not forget too the famous Devonshire cream teas on offer too!. There is beautiful outdoor decking and garden to bask up those sunrays and take time to relax, available to guests any time.
In the evenings we have a chimonier, which is available to our guests to use and enjoy.
Stacey and Will are incredibly proud and excited to usher the long established Smugglers Rest into her bright new future, and look forward to welcoming you very soon – there really is life in the old dog yet!
