    We stayed for a week over Christmas and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay as well as our dog. Huge outdoor space and enclosed garden to let our dog explore off lead. Well equipped, wood and kindling for log burner supplied for the week. There is also central heating and radiators in each room. Cleaning products supplied, toilet rolls etc as well as towels. There was also a pint of milk in the fridge, biscuits, tea & coffee and fresh flowers. Water was hot and plentiful and hot for washing up and for showering. There is also a table top dishwasher but we washed the dinner plates and saucepans by hand. Robin was helpful and gave us a tour of the cottage on arrival but was not intrusive (he lives next door). There was plenty of room to park our vehicle on a gravelled hardstand. We would recommend The Old Engine House and certainly re-visit.

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.

About the location

TRETOIL

Bodmin, the one-time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
