The Old Engine House

The Old Engine House is located in a peaceful smallholding near the tiny hamlet of Tretoil on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Surrounded by reminders of Cornwall’s ancient mining heritage, this comfortable cottage, converted from an old engine house, is ideal for couples. Watch out for Fred, the friendly owners’ soppy dog – the owners live next door and provide home-produced pork! On the ground floor is a cosy living room with wood burning stove, well-equipped kitchen and snug dining room for romantic suppers. Spruce up in the smart ground floor shower room before retiring to the double bedroom on the first floor. From the kitchen there’s a door to the simple garden with raised decking, ideal for evening sundowners. Explore historic Bodmin with its infamous gaol and interesting shops or hire a bike and visit nearby Lanhydrock House. Fine, sandy beaches are just a short drive away at Carlyon bay and Padstow. A fascinating place for couples who enjoy walking, cycling or golf and ideally placed for exploring the whole of Cornwall.

One bedroom: 1 x first floor king size double. Shower room with shower, basin and WC. Kitchen. Dining room. Sitting room with wood burning stove.
