About Engine HouseA restored water pump house in the heart of the Trelissick estate, close to the Fal Estuary.
Engine House originally housed the water pumps connecting the Water Tower to Trelissick House. After a restoration the utilitarian building has been transformed into a comfortable two-bedroom bungalow, with adapted facilities for guests with disabilities.
Take advantage of your location on this beautiful estate and discover the garden after hours. Leave the car at the cottage and travel to the heart of Truro and Falmouth via ferry
Further afield, discover the Roseland peninsula. This stunning area is home to wild Atlantic swells, bracing coastal walking trails and pretty, secluded coves.
