Smugglers Rock Country House was built in approximately 1840 and has been renovated to a very high standard with eight en-suite bedrooms and off-road parking. We have a 4 star rating from the English Tourist Board. Our spacious guest lounge and breakfast room both have panoramic views.We offer a comprehensive breakfast menu including our 'Delicious Yorkshire' breakfast using local produce and our own free-range eggs. We pump and filter our own fresh additive-free water from a borehole on our land - we find it makes a lovely cup of tea! The winter of 2006/07 saw the installation of solar panels to heat 90% of our hot water during the season. All of our bedrooms (3 of which have 4-poster beds) have colour televisions and tea/coffee making facilities.
