Smugglers Cove Cottages, the perfect place to escape reality and relax in the highest luxury with the most incredible views whichever way you look. 

Not only are the cottages designed and furnished to the highest luxury, but they are also steeped in history with the original ‘Smugglers Cottage’ dating all the way back to 1449, since then the cottage has been a hotel, a tea room and holiday chalets. 

Most impressively, the cottage was even where the French President Charles De Gaulle was billeted and protected by Winston Churchill during the second world war!

Beachside is the original cottage located on the Smugglers site, sleeping 8 adults the cottage has been modernised and furnished to an exceptionally high standard that is replicated throughout both of the cottages. 

The giant 800sqM private patio of Beachside Cottage has a raised sun-lounging area which overlooks the beach in the most perfect of locations to forget the worries of everyday life and just drink in the incredible views. 

In terms of amenities, Smugglers Cove Cottages really do have you covered for all eventualities. 

From the warm water outdoor shower for rinsing off beach sand and the undercover drying area perfect for swimwear and wetsuits, to the large open plan family friendly dining room with a large, 8 place dining table and highchair.

The large sea view kitchen is fitted with only the highest end appliances; Gaggenau oven, built in dishwasher, wok unit and fridge freezer, not forgetting the breakfast bar and walk-in larder! 

The lounge offers comfort and luxury with a 4k Screen TV with Sky movies and sports, plus wireless wifi, but if that wasn’t enough for you, the cottage even boasts its own games room with table football and a pool table, plus an extensive selection of board games.

Situated just above Beachside Cottage and nestled amongst the romantic cove of the North Cornish Coast, is the striking Clifftop cottage. 

Clifftop has been architecturally designed and is furnished and presented to a luxuriously high standard, comfortably sleeping 8 guests in 4 large double-bedded rooms. 

Clifftop is completely unique and you won’t find another cottage quite like it within the locality, the cottage boasts the best views over the beach, sea and harbour and all the while fitted with the latest mod-cons. 

Once again, nothing has been overlooked as the kitchen, the heart of the home, and particularly this cottage, provides lots of space for the family to gather, whilst taking in the breath-taking views from the French double doors that lead to the balcony area. So, make yourself a coffee from the Dolce Gusto coffee machine, and breathe in the views and the sea air. 

Venture into the sitting room and you are met with three comfortable sofas, with ample space to seat the whole family as you settle down to watch the large screen TV, or alternatively listen to your favourite songs on the SONO sound system. The TV is also equipped with Sky movies and Sky Sports. If you want to escape the football, just meander out of the double doors onto the attached balcony.

The luxury continues as you venture upstairs into the small games room; equipped with bean bags, board games and puzzles as well as a well-stocked reading area so you can enjoy a good book as you take in the views. 

The ground floor is home to an ensuite Bedroom and Bedroom 4 (if needed). Both have fabulous sea views. 

The first floor bedrooms are both ensuite and boast sea views, and the option of a travel cot with other helpful amenities including and LCD TV and hair dryer, whilst your en-suites are equipped with a heated towel rail and the most luxurious Egyptian cotton towels and linens.

The 70m glass fronted balcony wraps around the entire cottage and offers the most incredible views, which can also be enjoyed from the ‘Kissing Seat’ romantically carved into the cliffside so you can spend a romantic evening watching the seals frolicking in the sea below. 

Safety and family friendly adaptations are paramount throughout the properties and a fitted retractable barrier has been installed in the outside area to ensure safety when cooking in the ‘BBQ Nook’ carved into the cliff for alfresco dining. 

It’s easy to see why Smugglers Cove Cottages were named as a 2020 Good Hotel Award Winner with their luxury, state of the art accommodation, coupled with its enviable views and prime location for seal watching, and cliff top walks to find the wild ponies that reside on the Natural Trust cliffs just behind the houses. 

Smugglers Cove Cottages are the perfect location for the whole family, all year round. Rain or shine the cottages offer the most mind-blowing views, and avid storm watchers have been known to capture the most incredible footage and photographs as they watch the storms from the safety of the cottages during winter break holidays.
