What initially intrigued me about this 19th century Cornwall repurposed engine house was the stand-alone claw-foot tub, the beautifully juxtaposed large ornate mirror both nestled next to a grand window offering an abundance of natural light. Let me soak here each night and the days, no matter what they involved, will be punctuated with perfection.
But then I began to explore the home in which the claw-foot tub was situated, and I became even more fascinated.
Available as a vacation rental through Unique Home Stays, “The Castle” as it became known in the village beginning in the 20th century is available to be enjoyed by up to six people and two family dogs. Only a short 20 minute drive from the nearest town, Truro, enjoy a country getaway while living in true luxury. Whether you want to cook or not (a private chef is available), the grounds have available fresh herbs and the nearby markets and farm stands offer fresh produce to enjoy on the outdoor decks or inside around a roaring fire. From the soaking hot tub, to the plush outdoor furniture and a kitchen that begs you to stay in and nosh, relax and unwind, if you are looking for a dream of a English country getaway, you may have just found your home away from home.

I think if I ever visited, it would break my heart to leave!
I could completely understand such a sentiment. 🙂
love the thoughtful design and use of materials in this home!
Thoughtfully and creatively decorated and designed, no? 🙂
I think this is “Poldark” country, too! What a beautiful place to stay … If I could glimpse Aidan Turner galloping by on a horse, that would make it heaven 🙂
His appearance would indeed make this a dream vacation. 😉
All this rusticity combined with thoughtful ambiance and a DOG BY THE FIRE…who could not love this?
The dog invitation seals the deal! 😉
I was done for at the claw foot tub, but this entire home is my DREAM.
I know exactly what you mean. The claw-foot is everything and then there is more to love. 🙂
Simply Wow! such a delight and thank you for sharing.
Love the color of that dogs hair!
