The Engine House in Porthtowan is a completely unique part of Cornwall's heritage and lifestyle. Built at the height of the Cornish mining boom, it is a Grade II Listed beachside property with infinite character, comfort and convenience. The reverse level layout gives stunning beach views from the open-plan first and top floor, and the wrap-around first-floor level deck with pizza oven, barbecue and outdoor furniture make for a perfect setting. In the heart of Poldark country, Porthtowan is located between Illogan and St. Agnes (known as St. Annes in the book and TV series) with spectacular countryside walks in both directions along the South West Coastal Path. Featured in Charlie Luxton's C4 Programme "Homes by the Sea" in September 2015 (URL HIDDEN) The Engine House is a genuine part of Cornwall's heritage. Charlie says in the show "I could live here - I could definitely live here"!.

Kevin Mcleod briefly featured The Engine House in Grand Designs (Series 7, episode 18 - (URL HIDDEN) where he said "The Engine House at Porthtowan is one of the more successful conversions I have seen. It is unconventional."...."It proves that it is possible to make a beautiful home from these industrial dinosaurs".

Otros aspectos destacables

There is plenty of space for parking, although there is a lip on the drive and often plenty of sand which can make it awkward for low-slung or sporty cars. There is also free parking directly opposite if you struggle to get in.

The pictures match the reality. This place is the perfect location. Beach within 30 seconds walk - just throw your wetsuits on and catch the waves and then back for a nice cuppa on the balcony. The excellent Blue Bar another 30 seconds stroll over the sand. local and well equipped shop and chippy about 2 minutes walk. Wonderful place for a family holiday or holiday with a group of friends. Stunning and peaceful location. Robert is the perfect host - excellent and detailed communication. Mike, the neighbour, is also a lovely man and a good source of local knowledge. Highly recommended.

Robert's house is not just a good stay but an absolutely fantastic and unique experience in itself. The location, the views of the Atlantic Ocean, the village with the great places to eat (specially "Blue"... loved the food), convenient place to shop (Porthtowan Village Store) and a beautiful beach made our trip outstanding. Porthtowan gets a lot of surfing crowd and it's very lively. The Village Store has all the things you need plus an ATM/Post Office to withdraw cash. We took the the train from London Paddington to Redruth and then took a comfortable 15 min Taxi to the house. The kitchen was well equipped for our family's needs. The living room upstairs with the swing and the fantastic views from the windows were very enjoyable. Robert was always very approachable and friendly. His mail was very detailed and helped us settle in quickly. Thanks for being a great host and having a great place to stay. Would definitely like to come over again sometime!!

Wonderfully quirky old engine house - stunning location overlooking the sea. Our two year old was in heaven with the beach, playground opposite and some of the best ice cream ever! Great coastal walks for our dog too! I couldn't recommend highly enough. Thank you Robert!

Amazing house- I stayed here with a 2 year old (who is confident on stairs) and baby plus my parents. The house was very comfortable and had amazing views down to the beach. Beachfront location. This village was small and quiet when we went in March but would be quite busy in summer. There were local shops and a pub close by plus a playground a few metres away. Highly recommended.
