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 Café.

The Smugglers Rest offers 8 spacious en suite rooms, boasting stunning countryside views, and will soon be hosting evening dining events and live music.

Whether you fancy soaking up the summer sun in the lovely sheltered garden, or snuggling next to the cosy wood burning stove with a steaming mug of hot chocolate, Miss Fea’s café offers a friendly welcome all year round.

The menu of delicious snacks, generously filled sandwiches and light bites is fresh and seasonal, incorporating locally sourced produce to offer a taste of the very best that Devon has to offer. Our freshly ground coffees, teas and tasty fruit juices and smoothies are perfectly accompanied by chef Stacey’s mouthwatering cakes and sweet treats. We also serve a selection of quality wines, spirits and local and craft beers.

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.
