Accommodation Description:

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 1930s and offers comfortable accommodation with freshly cooked breakfast from locally sourced suppliers free WIFI and car parking facilities.
