About Engine CottageA holiday cottage with a history, this cosy retreat is tucked into the valley on the Cotehele estate.
Be part of Engine Cottage’s eclectic history when you spend a holiday here. The quirky stone building was built in the early 19th-century to house a Cornish beam engine and was later reused as a blacksmith's shop on the ground floor, with a miner's dry (changing room) on the floor above. Now it plays host to a cosy one-bedroom nook, where a log-burner immediately greets you upon entering.
A real romantic retreat, the cottage sits tucked away into the valley side with woodland rising steeply behind. You’ll be on a secluded corner of the Cotehele estate with the River Tamar nearby. There is a network of walks around the estate, a working flour mill and a large Tudor house for you to explore. Be sure to visit Shamrock, the only surviving Tamar Barge.
Further along the Tamar Valley, you’ll find more woodland walks and plenty of places to hire a boat or kayak. You can also hop on the Tamar Valley Line from Plymouth to Gunnislake, crossing the impressive Calstock viaduct.
