We have been to the Engine House a number of times and other Niche Retreat cottages. We just love to keep coming back. Always a wonderful stay. Thank you! Mrs Kim Harlott - 9th December 2018
A wonderfully peaceful location and very well appointed property.Mrs Anne Edwards - 1st October 2018
We had a really wonderful holiday. We particularly enjoyed visiting local towns and villages such as Mevagissey, Fowey and St Mawes, and gardens such as Heligan and Trelissick. It was perfect to return to a peaceful, secluded spot at the end of the day. There are lots more places and gardens we want to visit, so hope to be back. Mrs Robina Maslen - 18th June 2018
We were very comfortable and thorougly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful part of Cornwall Ms A Matts - 23rd May 2018
Excellent base to support a wedding at the Coast Guard Lookout. We would have struggled without its many facilities (sink in utility area for flowers as an example). We really enjoyed staying there. Lovely atmosphere in the cottage and very well equipped. Miss Gina Blake - 16th April 2018
