What guests are saying....

“We had a wonderful stay at Tinner's Cottage. The cottage felt like home as soon as we stepped in the door. The place was cosy and comfy, especially with the fire lit. There are some fantastic walks around the area, to Cape Cornwall and Land's End. St. Just is a lovely village with some nice cafes! The only thing I'd change would be to book even more time!”

"Excellent cottage with everything you need all home comforts and open fire, great location to explore the area.Highly recommended."

Charles. S - October 2020

"A lovely cottage, very well located on a quiet street three minutes walk from the centre of St Just. Nicely decorated, this traditional miner's cottage has been updated to modern standards. Very comfortable, it had everything we wanted. Seb sent a useful and comprehensive information pack before we arrived. Modern kitchen and bathroom fittings, all good quality, and a log fire in the front room. St Just itself was very well situated, fifteen minutes drive from Penzance and close to the coast. Pleasant and not too touristy, it had character."

"Perfect getaway in St. Just. Tinner’s Cottage is a real treat in walking distance of St. Just town center, which is full of wonderful amenities (butcher, bakery, fruit and veg, and many galleries) as well as walking distance to the amazing Cape Cornwall. The house is very neat and more spacious than expected. It’s apparent the owners have paid serious attention to detail and we really enjoyed it. Next time we plan to come and stay longer, as this doesn’t scratch the surface of things to do in West Cornwall."

“We stayed in Tinners Cottage for a week, it is a delightful place, we loved our time there. It is such a nice, well equipped cottage. A lot of thought has gone into making it a special place. St Just made an excellent base for us to explore the very West of Cornwall”

Penny Gundry - May 2019

"A lovely, clean and fully equipped little cottage in Cornwall. We had a wonderful stay at Tinners Cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to St Just. We loved how close it was to neighbouring villages and we particularly loved our visit to St Ives. The host were in constant communication with us, the cottage was lovely and clean with lovely little touches. We loved it"

Alexander Schlee - July 2018

"We spent a gorgeous few days in this lovely cottage. It’s light and contemporary feel was utterly charming. We explored the stunning coastal walks just a few minutes from the cottage and discovered the most idyllic beach,(Gwynver) only a short drive away. We had everything we needed for a perfect stay with our children. Our only complaint was that we couldn’t stay longer."

Mandy Ford - May 2018

"Tinner's Cottage, St just"

This lovely refurbished cottage has such a wonderful feeling when you walk through the door with so much character, history and style that all blend to create a cosy, relaxing and stylish holiday home. Think Poldark, log fires, stunning beaches and miles of incredible coastal walks many of which can be reached from the doorstep. 

Tucked away in an attractive, quiet terrace in the heart of the charming town of St Just, Tinner’s cottage would have originally been a miner’s cottage when this area was the epicentre of the worlds Tin mining industry. These days it’s simply the most fantastic spot to enjoy a holiday in an area of outstanding natural beauty where you are surrounded by breathtaking coastline and sleepy villages that time hasn’t yet caught up with.

Its dog friendly and perfect for families being a short drive to the glorious surfing found at Sennen which was recently voted in the top five Uk beaches by the times. For couples it’s a great cottage for a getaway to recharge the batteries and we offer a special just for two rate. The ever-popular town of St Just has an array of local shops and pubs and is set less than a mile from the incredible Atlantic coastline. A good tip the fish and chips from Jeremy's in the square are not to be missed!

Tinner’s Cottage itself has comfortable living space across the ground floor leading out to a pretty courtyard garden which is a great place to enjoy a sundowner or barbie after a day’s activities. Upstairs the master bedroom with gorgeous original wide floorboards and vaulted ceilings is the most relaxing of bedrooms. Across the hall the twin bedroom is decorated in soft pastels and flooded with light. Its zip and link so can be made up as a king size or two small singles, you choose. The bathroom feels luxurious with all that space and a claw foot bath to soak away in after a day’s surfing.

Built in the early 1840’s the original Miners would have bought their own plot on the street and then built their cottages according to their means. Tinner’s Cottage was definitely the most successful miner on this terrace! 


The whole town of St Just is a UNESCO world heritage site and surrounded by wild moors and dramatic coastline. If feeling energetic try exploring the stunning Tinner’s way running along the coast from Cape Cornwall all the way to St Ives. It’s an ancient route from the Bronze age and where the tin and copper ore was transported along the way from St Just to Hayle

St Just is a friendly town that feels lost in time with an array of great local shops, a deli, a butcher, four pubs and a small local supermarket for your everyday needs. Surrounding the town are the most spectacular stretches of coastline and fantastic walks from the doorstep. Sennen with its glorious surfing beach is ten minutes away as is Potheras, a hidden and stunning locals cove. Travelling further east within twenty minutes you can be in Marazion with its fabulous beach overlooking the famous St Michaels Mount, St Ives, Mousehole and Penzance. 


Walking in through the hall you enter the spacious open plan sitting and dining room which in turn leads through the conservatory to the garden. It’s a lovely room to relax in with two comfy leather sofas and super little Victorian working fireplace, perfect for cosy evenings in. For entertainment, there is a small wall mounted flat screen TV and games and books left for you to use. Through the dining area the large conservatory/sun room with doors to the garden is a great spot for planning the days activities over a morning coffee. There is a large trestle table and chairs, a retro fridge freezer and plenty of space to hang coats and store wet suits.


The dining area has comfortable seating for four with a round table and chairs and leads through the conservatory into the kitchen. The well equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast and more. There is an electric hob and oven, a washer/dryer and a microwave oven.


There are two comfortable bedrooms on the first floor and there is a bespoke stairgate for little ones and your four-legged friend. The main bedroom overlooks the front garden and is a gorgeous space. There are large fitted wardrobes and a double bed with luxury memory foam mattress. The twin room has zip and link beds so can be made up as a king size or two small singles, you choose. It's a pretty double aspect bedroom which overlooks the rear garden.


The stunning bathroom is spacious with original varnished wood floor boards and a stunning freestanding bath with a shower attachment. You’re on holiday so no rush and enjoy soaking away in the lovely room. Towels and bedding are provided for you, just remember to bring your own beach towels.
