About Smuggler's Cottage

Cottage rental includes

This 400 year old thatched cottage, with its own quay, enjoys a unique and secluded location on the estuary beach at Dittisham. Marvellous river views from all rooms, except the kitchen and bathrooms. Flagstone floors with scatter rugs, exposed timbers, woodburner stoves and stripped pine furniture complement the cottage’s ‘olde worlde’ charm. If you are not one of Smugglers Cottages’ many previous guests, due to its idiosyncracies it is essential that you speak to Toad Hall Cottages prior to booking.
