About the hotel
Smugglers Cottage, situated in Ferndown, is over 400 years old, and, as its name suggests, was frequently used by smugglers many years ago who had landed at Poole Harbour as a waypoint on their journey to the mainland. Smugglers Cottage at Ferndown was one of many such places along the south coast. Concealed by woodland, the cottage was the perfect place for smugglers to meet, drink, share and fight without disturbance from others who may be less inclined to agree with their practices.
The cottage was featured in the BBC Home & Gardens magazine, and many of the older timbers are aptly from a shipwrecked Spanish galleon, at St Albans Head. After many years in the sea, the wood has absorbed the sea salt and is now as hard as ebony. Smugglers Cottage has been a bed and breakfast of sorts since the early 1930's and offers comfortable accommodation with freshly cooked breakfast from locally sourced suppliers, free WIFI and car parking facilities.

A little treasure waiting to be found.
We needed to stay for one night and this was a perfect location.
Close to the main road but easy to find. Very friendly owners and we had a a charming stay, with a wonderful breakfast ( cooked to order) in the mornng. A big thank you for making our stay so welcoming and delightful.
We had a two night stay at smugglers cottage and really enjoyed our stay there.
The room was clean and bed comfortable, tea and coffee available. Breakfast was cooked to perfection and filled us up for the day ahead. Victoria and Roger were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. Would recommend staying there and have had people asking about it after posting pictures on facebook, would definitely go back.
