The sea views were fabulous as was the weather we had ,very peaceful location. Gary did forget the low ceilings and bang his head a few times .Also Jim is very helpful and supportive. Would recommend a visit to the smugglers for food it was excellent

Gordon the owner welcomed us and showed us around and even provided a lovely cream tea on arrival, really nice touch. You really couldn't ask for a better location, it's a 10 minute walk Croyde beach or a 15 minute drive to Woolacombe beach. Would definitely visit again and will be recommending it to everyone!
