Great, cozy Cornish cottage
We enjoyed our stay, the cottage was warm and cozy and had everything we needed for a break away from home.
Wonderful old cottage
The cottage is charming. Great location. We walked everywhere, to St Michaels Mount, Penzance, Mousehole. Great bus system if you want to further afield. The cottage was cozy, well equipped, the beds were comfortable. Would recommend to anyone.
Thanks for the lovely comments on the cottage, im glad you had a great holiday, you visited all the best places too!
safe journey home.
Nice cottage impractical
Lovely cottage, but difficult for older people. Stairs very steep. En suite unbelievably small
Steps down from road difficult. My wife had had a knee replacement 3 weeks before holiday and was unable to get to the kitchen.
Tonkins cottage was absolutely perfect fir us. Great price, great position , helpful owners. Spent just over a week there and were very disappointed to leave. I am 6 foot 4 tall and banged my head everywhere within this house, however if anyone leaves a negative comment about tonkins cottage they are wrongly overestimating their own importance in life.
Thanks for the lovely comments and glad you had a great stay, we are always happy to help and glad our time and investment in the cottage pays off to make your holiday special.
Cosy and homely cottage
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!
Not a happy experience
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.
Thankyou for you review, in response, we did arrange for the housekeeper to visit the cottage within 30 minutes of your phone call to check the cleaniness, you agreed with the housekeeper the cottage had been cleaned. There were a couple of small stains on one carpet, the en suite is small as it is a 130 year old character cottage, rooms in the late 1800's were small. If as a guest you are looking for a new build apartment Tonkins is not the ideal place to stay, if you are looking for a traditional cornish cottage then it is a wonderful place to stay as the guests the week before you and after stated with a 5 star reviews. As per our policy a no quibble full refund including deposit was given. My biggest disappointment as an owner was despite sending a cleaner round within half an hour and having a full refund in your bank within 2 hours, still only one star was given, which does suggest your review is not a fair one.
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.
