I would like to leave review of B & B Smug Rest but as I never booked it system will not enable me to do so.
Room had a "Sea view" standing on one leg out of the side window. Could see it better from the non frosted bit of en-suite window
Room was cold at night and during the day, some windows double glazed.
En-suite was cold radiator was not plumbed in or wired.
En-suite window enabled all the locals to get a view of you on loo and in shower especially when light was on. I witnessed the room below sat on the loo when I had to go out to feed parking meter £4.50.
Not enough room to sit on toilet without cold glass shower panel touching your legs, Water pressure in shower very poor. Loo paper was the best wet & dry sand paper I have seen.
Gentle slope in the room floor from window to door.
Tea bags and coffee was revolting.
Bed bounced when ever we moved waking the other one up.
Only saving grace was the Quilt and Pillow was feather.
The local pubs are ok and the "Blue" had good food.
We hated it and could not stay for the second night.
My advice is that owners should stick to getting the basic right, warm room, lashings of hot water and decent coffee and tea. Not to mention a bed that does not keep moving after you have stopped

Mortehoe is a lovely little village within easy travelling distance of Woolacombe. The village is small so easy to walk around, there is a small museum manned by volunteers, a church and a couple of pubs and shops. I eat in The Ship Aground one evening- good food and atmosphere. A good place to do walks from and to get to other places in North Devon.

Perfect family getaway - fishing, rock pools, surfing and deep country - plus digital detox - service appalling - so kids forced to have good old fashioned fun!
North morte campsite ⛺️ is highly recommended

The village is attractive and set in a wonderful landscape. Early June is a good time to visit as the roads, paths, beaches and restaurants aren't busy. The coastal path was breathtaking (in more ways than one) and nearby beaches very attractive.

There is a true village atmosphere, we ate in both the village pubs. The bus stop in the village was convenient. Walking along the cliffs with breathtaking sea views was a highlight. It was an easy walk into Woolacombe and we caught the bus back to Mortehoe

Such a lovely place, very friendly locals and very cute little pubs that do some amazing foods, especially the local fish dishes! Beautiful views, cliffs, beach and hills. It's quaint and lovely and even more tranquil in winter. I will be back.
“A newly renovated and thoroughly lovely place. Friendly management, quiet and comfortable, and in a great location in Mortehoe, which is just a short (uphill) walk from Woolacombe. Beautiful walks right on the doorstep.”
“It had more style than an average B&B. The cafe was really lovely and the outdoor terrace was a bonus. We enjoyed our gin and tonic in the cafe bar. The owners made us very welcome but were professional; the Smugglers Rest had the atmosphere of a small hotel which we preferred to a B&B. The location was good and we liked being in the heart of the village.”
