Nice, quiet and peaceful cottage

  • 4 out of 5
Tonkins cottage is a lovely old cottage in a small fishing village which is really ideally located for trips around southern Cornwall. The cottage it's self is well kitted out with 3 bedrooms, living area and dining area, well equipped kitchen and 2 shower rooms, which are small and compact. A couple of things didn't work but other than that we had a lovely stay and liked the quirkiness of the cottage with the kitchen downstairs! Might not be suitable for older people as stairs were narrow and steep but we had plenty of room for 7 of us, 1 child slept on the floor in blow up bed and the dog stayed in his pen in the kitchen. I would definitely go back.

Gem of a cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Just back from a week at Tonkins Cottage and would go back tomorrow if i could. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing holiday complimented by fantastic views, friendly locals and some good pubs nearby. Parking was not a problem , its an easy walk to Mousehole and Penzance.

Another brilliant holiday

  • 4 out of 5
We booked this cottage because it had all we needed for a good family holiday, it was in a good location,& is what the owners say it is.The ensuite room was perfect for my 67 year old mum who had no problems with the stairs(she walks with a stick).If you wanted to park your car & not drive the transport system is excellent,but we drove every where covering over 900 miles in two fabulous weeks.We like to get around & see cornwall & in the last 7 years we still find new things to see& do.The local pubs are good but book a taxi (only 5pound for four to the centre of Penzance ) or walk 20 mins.go to chapel street several pubs& resteruants to chose from,also the dolphin has good food.if you go over the little bridge in newlyn &round by the Rover garage theres a small white pub the Tolcarne with vgood cheap food &beer.
The only down sides are yes you cant always park rightoutside the cottage if you get back at late ,& the locals are a bit funny. But i only spent £12in two weeks to park when back late .
Also i think it would benifit from a tumble dryer for the towels but these are small things considered. we had a brilliant stay & dealing with the owners was a pleasure from start to finish they where very helpfull & we would go back again definately.

Excellent location and house, nice owner.

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is really in wonderful surroundings, just walk out at night and watch the fishing boats preparing for the night catch with St Michael Mount behind. Excellent fish shops, restaurants and pub literally behind the corner. Strategically located also for enjoying the West Cornwall, not more than 20 minutes from many beautiful places like Minack Theatre, St Ives, St Michael Mount, St Just with a lot of walking paths, quoits and stone circles. The communications with the owner were also very pleasant. I can warmly recommend this place!
Just keep in mind that sometimes (when arriving late) it can be impossible to park the car immediately near the house, but the carpark near the fish shops (handy!) is always available and there are some free parking spaces during the night available along the road. Visitors with small children must be prepared to watch for steep stairs down to the kitchen.

We travelled to the cottage for two weeks in August with two very young children myself my mum and our family dog. We found the location excellent for walking to beaches,rock pools cafes, and local attractions.The local number 6 bus stops directly opposite the house for easy access to Penzance bus station which meant we didnt have to drive.
The cottage was large and modern and had everything that we could need as a family.The neighbours and locals we very friendly and helpful and the children and dog had an amazing holiday and we would definitely recommend this to friends and would definitely return.
I found the welcome pack and leaflets very helpful and we didnt need or struggle for anything.
We would like to thank the owners for providing such a clean spacious and well priced property that really does give the trye taste of a REAL working fishing village in Cornwall where you can escape and relax.

Take the A30 to Penzance, follow Penzance centre (ignore A30 Newlyn Signs), take the coast road to Newlyn,

once you are in Newlyn follow Mousehole signs past the docks, go up the hill past the Red Lion and the Fishermans Pub, you will see the cottage 20 yards past the fishermans on the right, carry on for 100 yards until

you come to the end of the 1 way system as you do this immediately make a 180 degree u turn back on yourself

after 50 yards see a post box and a small grass area. Tonkins Cottage is the cottage behind the postbox.
