Welcome to The Smugglers Rest

Bed & Breakfast in Mortehoe, Woolacombe, North Devon

Built in the 1800s, the Smugglers Rest nestles in the quaint coastal village of Mortehoe, just a short walk from one of Europe’s best beaches.

Having welcomed visitors for over 100 years, this historic building has recently undergone extensive renovations under the care of new owners Stacey and Will, transforming the old bar into the charming Miss Fea’s bistro.

The Smugglers Rest offers 8 spacious en suite rooms, boasting stunning countryside views, Will and Stacey have worked tirelessly to improve the building whilst being sympethic to its history, restoring original features and resinstalling victorian style features wherever possible. 

Miss feas cafe has evolved from the opening 5 years ago into a relaxed bistro serving a locally sourced fresh menu 5 nights a week and sunday lunch on sundays. The menu is well balanced to cater for a variety of dietary requirements with a focus on fresh seasonal sustainable produce. Bookings are strongly advised,  please click on the reserve a table at the top of this page to make a reservation. Being a relatively small space we're unable to cater for groups larger than six at the moment. 


Stacey and Will are proud to usher the Smugglers Rest into the future, and look forward to welcoming you soon.

What our customers are saying...

"An unexpected welcome"

The weather was letting us down, persistent rain showers, but the friendliness of Will interested us to take a seat inside and enjoy a morning coffee – made the visit to this village worthwhile

I loved the decor, the coffee was perfect and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

It may be a new venture so I wish them both the best of luck and a great success.
