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...

"Amazing Upgrade"

We booked over the phone and Will could not have been more helpful, we felt really welcome.

The lounge dining area is really smart, they have done a fabulous job of the re-vamp. Our bedroom was very spacious and spotlessly clean with a lovely comfy bed and a pretty little balcony.

Stacey was just as welcoming and the breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious. I have to say the two of them worked like galley slaves to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

The Smugglers is in the centre of Mortehoe with the tea shops and eating places right on the doorstep. We absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go back.
