Once the original engine house for Scattor Rock quarry that once produced the hardest road stone known to man, Engine House is now a delightful holiday home on the outskirts of the village of Bridford, in Devon.
The building once housed a steam engine that drove the crushing mill next door, with some of the brickwork of the buildings still remaining to the back of the property, and other remains of the old mining buildings dotted through the landscape, now taken over by the luscious green wildlife.
The building has since been converted into a comfortable base for up to four people, featuring an open-plan living area containing a kitchen, dining area and sitting area, so you can still spend time together with your loved ones whilst doing different things.
To the back of the property are the two bedrooms - a double and a twin - along with a contemporary and modern bathroom with shower over.
At the back of the property an enclosed garden formed from the remaining industrial walls with table and benches for you to sit out on a peaceful summer evening with a glass of wine, under the stars.
The village of Bridford offers the essentials with a pub and a shop, while the neighbouring villages such as Chudleigh and Christow can offer you more selection.
Being on the eastern edge of Dartmoor, there are many superb walks, reservoirs, heather-clad tors and Dartmoor ponies to be enjoyed with most activities being under a 30-minute drive away.
The Engine House is a very special place to spend a wonderful break away with loved ones, with nature on your doorstep, and stunning countryside views.
