Smugglers Rest  Smugglers Rest is set in the heart of Coverack village
Smugglers Rest (sleeps 4 and a cot) is set in the heart of Coverack village. This attractive, two bedroomed period property has wonderful dual coastal views, the front of the cottage with it's private sun patio overlooking Coverack harbour, whilst the pretty patio garden to the rear overlooks Perprean Cove.

They don't make views like this any more! Smugglers Rest sleeps 4 and a cot. Sorry, no pets or smoking in the cottage allowed. All guests receive a complimentary welcome pack including tea, coffee, milk and essential holiday items such as Cornish clotted cream, strawberry jam and scones!

Smugglers Rest dates back to the late 18th century and retains many original features including beamed ceilings, an inglenook fireplace and a secret press-gang hideaway, from the days when Coverack was a thriving smuggling village.
