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.

Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.

The Engine House is about 8 minutes drive along the St Anthony Headland from Portscatho, close to the little hamlet of Bohortha. The beaches at Towan and St Anthony are only a short drive away (about 1mile). Please do have a look at the location map for a more detailed idea of the position.
