Smuggler’s End is an exquisite example of a thatched Devon holiday cottage near the sea and aptly named after what was probably once a smugglers’ retreat. It is full of character with illuminated inglenooks, beams and exposed stone walls combining delightful charm and a peaceful atmosphere with a spacious, comfortable and homely interior. Situated in Galmpton, just a short distance from Hope Cove, there are beautiful views from the garden’s terraced lawns out across the cliffs, sea and to the horizon beyond. The old fishing village of Hope Cove has a bit of everything for a good family holiday; two sandy beaches, large inn, restaurants, cream teas, excellent sweet and souvenir shop and is right on the South West Coastal path, which meanders around the cliff tops in both directions to other beaches and villages.

Please Note: Adult supervision is required for young children in the garden.

Also note: The cottage lies opposite a working potato farm and during harvest time (July-September) there may be early morning vehicle movements.

Porch over entrance through glazed front door into large beamed living/dining room with woodburner in a huge stone, open fireplace that has a large cavity to one side which could well have been where ‘booty’ was stored. This room is comfortably furnished with sofas and wing backed chairs, window seats, an unusual long coffee table and oak dining table with seating for 8. Flat screen TV/DVD/video. To one end of the room is a door through to the spacious kitchen accommodated in an extension to the rear of the cottage with ceramic hob and electric oven, fridge/freezer and microwave. A back door from the kitchen leads out to a small utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer and steps up to the garden. To the other end of the living room is a hallway (via a couple steps) that leads to Bedroom 1 with 4ft 6 in double bed and doors leading to rear patio. Hallway also leads to a Shower room with shower cubicle, basin and WC, and the back door to the garden. First floor: Bedroom 2 with 4ft 6in double bed, built in wardrobe and low, recessed cottage window. Bedroom 3 with twin 3ft beds and beautiful views across the garden. Bedroom with twin 3ft beds and a 2ft 6in bed. Bathroom with enamelled bath, hand basin and WC.

Cosy front garden, a real sun trap with stone paving, a pretty flower and shrub border, table and chairs and screened by a high hedge from the road. Large stepped gardens to the back and one end of the cottage with lawns, trees, shrubs and flowerbeds and far reaching views across countryside and the sea. Picnic table, chairs and barbecue provided.

Please Note: Adult supervision is required for young children in the garden.

Ample opposite in the Hope & Galmpton Village Hall car park, £15 per week payable at the farm opposite the cottage. May be the occasional event at the village hall when parking more limited but even then spaces usually still always available. Parking also available on verge by road.

We had a very enjoyable stay. Property was very good and garden was lovely. A word to guests in the cottage brochure would be good to warn of traffic when leaving the property as this road is now very busy.

January 2018

I couldn’t believe how well equipped the kitchen was. I took lots of stuff from home as you never know what you’re going to get in cottages but it literally had several of everything. Brilliant. And the bottle of prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch.

I thought the house very spacious and well laid out. The range of equipment was brilliant and to have a tumble dryer as well was a gift! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and sitting in front of the log fire at night was a perfect end to some very windy evenings! Thanks for having such a lovely cottage and we will definitely be using Toad Hall again Kind regards Linden
