The Engine House is located on the dramatic St Anthony headland to the south west of Portscatho on the idyllic Roseland Peninsula. It is a quite beautiful conversion of an old engine house which once served the main house with electricity and water. It is a wonderful spot to spend a holiday. The property is fitted to high standards and will accommodate up to 4 people in 2 bedrooms. The kitchen is beautifully presented with an Electric Aga and granite worktops. The living room is simple but stylish, as are the two bedrooms and there is oak flooring throughout.
The main property sits in 4 acres of land, the Engine House has its own enclosed garden area. The coastal path passes close to the end of the drive and from here you can explore one of the most unspoilt sections of Cornwall's dramatic coastline, with magnificent promontories, secluded coves and stunning beaches. It is a haven for walkers as there are miles of footpaths to explore. It is also only a short walk down the hill to Place, where during the summer season a little passenger ferry will take you across the bay to St Mawes from where you can catch ferries to Falmouth & Truro. This is true Cornwall at its most wild and beautiful. The coastline here is owned by the National Trust and the views all around the headland are fantastic. The beach at Towan (1 mile away) rarely gets very busy and the waters are clear and excellent for swimming.
