Smugglers Overview

From the undeniably impressive and colourful interior design, to its position in idyllic Batson, Smugglers is a true original in our diverse portfolio of luxury holiday homes in Salcombe.

The Grade II listed mid-terrace cottage is situated at the head of the Batson Creek which forms part of the Salcombe estuary. It is stacked full of incredible features and has the most wonderful character. From reclaimed rudders and up-cycled ropes, to exposed beams and twinkly lights, this is a joyful Salcombe holiday home.

The sunny terrace in front of the cottage captures the sun for most of the day and is the perfect place for a cup of tea in the morning or an evening gin and tonic. The stable doors at the front of the cottage lead into the small but well-equipped kitchen and dining area. You can fit nine around the table, but elbows need to be politely tucked in! Look out for the lobster fairly lights around the sideboard…

Up a couple of steps you’ll find a good sized sitting room with wood burner. There are plenty of colourful features and gorgeous lamps to give a great feel to this room. Board games are stored in the cupboards for evening entertainment (or for a rainy day; we have to admit these happen from time to time!)

Upstairs to the first floor landing (which which is wallpapered with real charts) there are three bedrooms; two super kings and one twin. Each bedroom has beautiful tones, fabrics, light fittings and eclectic trinkets. There are two bathrooms for the house, one being a shower room with hanging mackerel light fittings, and the second a bath with overhead shower.

Going up into the loft area there is the perfect zone for children. A snug area complete with sofa, television and twinkly lights gives youngsters an escape from the adults and their own space to have fun. Up a few steps from the snug there are three single beds.

Up the road from the cottage is a separate garden to enjoy plus a table and chairs for outdoor dining. There is also an outbuilding where the washing machine and tumble dryer can be found.

Please note: the outside garden areas are unsuitable for unsupervised young children as there is a small stream at the bottom of the garden. 

One well-behaved dog allowed at the discretion of the owners. A £45 dog fee will be applied.

No smoking allowed inside.
