Smugglers is a beautiful haven with larch cladding for two in the heart of Bodmin Moor. Wonderfully rural and utterly romantic, you can leave your stresses and worries behind and enjoy the pure serenity this retreat has to offer with that special someone. Whether you watch the sunrise through the French doors of your bedroom or crack open a bottle of bubbly and watch the stars in the wooden hot tub, you will never want to leave this alluring bespoke escape. Plus there's a private paddock of half an acre for your four legged friend to explore!
Living and eating

Stepping into Smugglers, you will find yourself in a spectacularly spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with triple aspect patio doors and windows, leading out to the decking.

With luxurious oak floors throughout, the living space is wonderfully airy and boasts a matching cosy grey sofa and armchair, unique antique suspended lampshades and even a telescope to do some star watching. In this homely space, you can light the toasty wood burner, relax with a bottle of wine and enjoy the night sky over Bodmin Moor whilst snuggled on the sofa. For the cooler months there are thermostatic heaters and underfloor heating throughout the retreat.

In the stylish and modern kitchen, with real granite worktops, you will find everything one could need to rustle up a romantic meal or breakfast in bed. There is a Lavazza coffee pod machine and milk frother for coffee lovers, plus a ceramic hob and oven, and hidden necessities such as a dishwasher and fridge with freezer compartment. Beside the kitchen is the inviting large farmhouse table with padded chairs and sheepskin covered bench, perfect for a spot of lunch or a special evening meal.

In addition, you will find a washer/dryer in the boot room.


Sink into the luxuriously soft king-size bed, kitted out with 100% cotton bed linen, and take in the dazzling views out of the wide French doors. Through these lovely doors you can access the decking, so grab your morning coffee, don your large fluffy bathrobes, open up the bedroom and breathe in that fresh Cornish air.


The en-suite bathroom has a romantic free-standing bathtub for two, with a windowsill low enough to enjoy the blissful views over the Cornish hilltops with a glass of wine. There is also a divine walk-in rain shower, heated towel rails, underfloor heating and complimentary Trevano Organic skincare toiletries. You'll also find a loo in the boot room.

Outdoor space

Accessible from both the bedroom and the living area is a lovely wooden wrap around decking which makes the most of the spectacular views. Step down onto the gravelled courtyard complete with two teak steamer sun loungers to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining or maybe have a dip in the handcrafted wood-fired hot tub. There is a further grass section, just beyond the gravelled area, which you can use to lounge on a blanket in the sun or to let your furry friend run around happily. There is also a Weber charcoal BBQ for your use, as well as a pretty herb garden should you want to cook with fresh ingredients in the kitchen. At the entrance of Smugglers, you will also find some outdoor hanging space - perfect for wetsuits after a day out in the Cornish sea. Smugglers also has a lovely wicker picnic basket, blanket and even a watercolour set for your use should you feel inspired.


There is space for one car to park at Smugglers.

Three well behaved dogs are very welcome at Smugglers. There is a dog towel, water bowl and food bowl for your four-legged friend. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break. The garden is enclosed and secure, however there are a couple of rings ties as well should you fear your furry friend will make a dash for it. There is also a dedicated dog walking paddock right next to Smugglers, comprising of over half an acre of trees, wild flowers and grasses, fenced with wire and wooden rails. Please note that dogs do need to be kept under strict control at Smugglers as there is a lot of livestock in adjacent fields to the property.

Please be aware that the last 400 meters of the access route is via a rough farm track, in case you have a car with low profile tyres or low suspension. The owners are situated nearby and are on hand if you need anything during your stay.


Smugglers is a non-smoking property and we ask that guests don't smoke anywhere at the property or in the grounds due to being situated on moorland and the potential for wildfires, thank you for your understanding.
