Refurbished for 2010 with new kitchen and shower rooms.
Tonkins Cottage is a 200-year-old cottage just 15 metres from the beautiful Newlyn Harbour, in a delightful part of Cornwall. It is well situated for exploring the delights of Newlyn, Penzance and the whole of the Lands End Peninsula. The cottage with its fine decor includes night storage heaters, double glazing throughout and is fully equipped for 2 – 6 people. Also a small garden to the front where you can sit, look over the harbour, and enjoy the sun trap.
A lovely, quaint, cosy and well equipped cottage. When we arrived the cottage was very clean and we felt at home instantly.
The information folder was full of ideas for days out and the location was great for day tripping and there was also plenty to do within walking distance.
There was a 3 year old in our party and she had no problems with the stairs.
I will definitely be booking Tonkins Cottage again next year!
We arrived early evening unable to park outside to unload. Steps leading to cottage were extremely dangerous totally unsuitable for anybody. The "minute" garden was unkempt and lots of litter. The key didn't work in the lock properly. Carpets were dirty and stained, it smelt of wet dogs rugs were dirty, mattresses well worn without protectors, wardrobes had damp walls, en-suite was a cupboard in the corner of the room with a sink in the bedroom and a water heater. However, we complained to the owner who refunded our money needless to say we didn't stay 1 night and were able to find another property with another holiday co. which was absolutely fantastic. Tonkins could do with an upgrade.
We were impressed as soon as we arrived. The cottage was spacious and easily accommodated 5 adults and a toddler. It was well equipped and maintained and lived up to expectations from the web site description. We were looked after well by owners in preparation for the visit and knew what was expected of us. We spent a lot of time running/walking along the coast easily accessing Penzance and Mousehole on foot.
Local pubs are welcoming and eating, if you like fish, is heaven!
Local shops provide fresh quality produce and we cooked a lot to enjoy this.
Best meal was in Newlyn in the Mackeral Sky seafood bar where you can choose dishes to share or eat alone, which are cooked to order. Good value and excellent food. Just go along and hope for a table, you can't book.
A great break for us, all went home happy!
We ranged from 5 months to 61 years of age (grandparents, mum and children) - the cottage was lovely - very convenient for everywhere we wanted to go and within walking distance of Penzance and Mousehole. We have been coming to Newlyn for 30 years and this is most certainly a cottage that we would return to. It was warm, comfortable with everything that we could have wanted and well equipped. Slight and very minor hiccup is the parking but was worth the slight hassle. Would highly recommend and will certainly be back
Tonkin's Cottage was perfect for exploring this part of Cornwall with Penzance and Mousehole within walking distance.The Cottage was thoughtfully modernised with a well equipped kitchen. A log burner made the cottage cosy in the evening and nearby local pubs were welcoming.
Great views of the harbour - we had a really relaxing week and are looking forward to going back.
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.
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.
