Smugglers Rest is an amazing, interesting cottage. The bedroom was large, and had plenty of wardrobe space, and hangers, bed was really comfortable. Lovely hot shower and a bath too. Water was always piping hot. Lounge had 2 comfortable settees, and a wood burner, which we didn’t need to use. Kitchen/dinner had a lovely big table and chairs, washing machine was a bonus too. It has every utensil you would ever need. Brilliantly equipped. The view from all the windows were amazing, and a fabulous front sitting area outside perfect for morning coffee. A back garden too! With a washing line, bench and table and more amazing views over another bay. This cottage has everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

Smugglers rest was very clean upon arrival. Lovely cottage with sea views. We've been several times before and will come again.

I had a wonderful stay at Smugglers Rest, fantastic location - perfect for a week of walking and swimming. The plumbing emergency mid-stay was dealt with very efficiently by Jenny (housekeeper) and Sarah (customer services) whilst I was out for the day and it was all sorted before I got back. The cottage is very comfortable with lovely views to the front and from the back. I got very lucky with a week of mostly amazing weather, so I took full advantage of the easily accessible coast path walking - lots to do and see in the area. The main bedroom was at times very cold - there is quite a large gap between the 2 window panes (even when fully closed) so on the windy days the wind whistled straight in - this could easily be addressed with some draught excluder, and obviously wouldn't be such an issue at a warmer time of year. The cottage is really well located amongst the hustle and bustle of the village (the village shop is fantastic!), whilst having the advantage of the garden opening directly onto the headland behind - lots of benches which are a perfect location for taking a book and a coffee!

This is our 3 rd stay at Smugglers Rest and we just love it. The cottage is so tastefully done and so comfortable, clean and well equipped. We love the Crows Nest at the front and the lovely garden at the back. The location is just perfect and lovely looking out the windows over the harbour. We enjoy sitting on the harbour wall or on the seats near Archie's Loft and just watching the goings on. Particularly like walk to the Sculpture Park and just sitting there with our flask of coffee. Booked for another 2 weeks next May.

Mrs Dawson May 2021
Liked being in the centre of the village and the position of the cottage with dual aspect to front and back with carefully tended garden at the latter. Liked the attention and lighting given to the old fireplace and the smuggler's den. Overall a delightful place to stay. we will certainly return.
