  • "This was our second stay at Jonwyn's and it was equally lovely."

    The location is excellent and the house is comfortable and well equipped. The listing did mention a firepit though, which we couldn't find (?) Otherwise a really relaxing holiday (and lovely September weather) from a perfect base to explore the North coast of Cornwall.

    Thank you for your review, Lesley. We are so glad you had a good time. Apologies for the missing fire pit - we hope it did not detract too much from your stay. Dean & Debs Property Owner

  • "Overall we loved our stay at Jonwyns."

    We thought there were some really great touches - well equipped kitchen (lots of plates, bowls, glasses, serving dishes etc….) comfy sofas and living space, light and airy in the kitchen-living room area. Second sitting room cosy and would be perfect in winter. Loved the view to the mine. Garden nice - just wished we could have used it (we had wet weather all week). We did manage to get one BBQ in. Nicely decorated. Wi-Fi was very good! Good instructions to find it in welcome email. This property is like a home rather than just a place to stay. A couple of very small details: 1) Black out blind in bunk bed room 2) Window cleaner? 3) A washing machine combined with a drier. We had a wet week and the option to tumble dry a few things would have been good. 4) I meant to leave a note but the sink and shower in the main bathroom did not drain very well. Probably just needs some unblocking liquid. 5) King sized bed or even just replace the mattresses? 6) The cottage had a real fusty smell on arrival. This subsided after a day or two after opening all windows but maybe on exchange day it would be good to open all the windows. These points did not really affect our stay and we would absolutely stay again but just thought we’d say as sometimes the finer details can make a difference.

    Thanks for the feedback, Bonnie - we will look into the points you have raised. We are so glad you had a great time despite the inclement weather; being so close to the coast, it does tend to have a mind of its own. Thanks for being great guests and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Debs & Dean Property Owner

  • "Fantastic cottage, lovely secluded area."

    Well equipped kitchen and lovely comfy living rooms. Really was such a lovely place and the owners bent over backwards to help us with our residency so we can get married in the parish of Tintagel. Cannot fault this cottage or the owners at all. There was bread and milk and some fudge and biscuits when we got there and a really lovely atmosphere. Cannot recommended this place enough!

    Thank you James, for booking, and for taking the time to write a review; we are so glad you had a good stay at the house. Best of luck with the wedding planning and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Dean & Debs Property Owner

  • "This was our second visit to Jonwyns and we enjoyed it just as much as the first visit."

    The location of the cottage is wonderful and the cottage itself is both spacious and cosy at the same time. We went for many walks in the area and also visited the Port William pub in Trebarwith Strand on many occasions which is well worth a visit. We hope to visit Jonwyns again in the not to distant future. Thank you to the owners of Jonwyns for letting us stay in this beautiful property and also to Sykes Cottages for a very efficient service.

    Many thanks for your review, Wendy; we are glad you had another great time and are considering a return soon. Debs & Dean Property Owner

  • "Jonwyns is a well appointed tastefully refurbished cottage in an ideal location, set back from the road with good parking for three vehicles."

    Although close to a road traffic is extremely light even during the rush hour. Kitchen facilities and equipment were of a high standard and appliances were easy to use. The kitchen/dining/sitting area was such a lovely space for eating and relaxing that we did not use the second sitting room during our stay although this was also a lovely cosy room. We can definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return again very soon. The only observation we would make is that it would be helpful to mention in the information pack that the microwave is in the external utility room as it is not initially apparent, That said, this is a lovely cottage in an idyllic location.

    Many thanks for your feedback, Wendy; noted regarding the instructions about the microwave's location. We are so glad you had a nice week at Jonwyns, and are contemplating a return visit soon. Dean & Debs Property Owner

    Magnificent inside and out. We had the most comfortable relaxed break here and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. The vaulted lounge, dining, kitchen is stunning. Whilst there we had a few heavy storms but stayed really warm and dry in this bright tastefully decorated home. Hardly used the other lounge

    Thanks for taking time to write a review, Patrick. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at the property and hope you consider booking again. We are building a cabin in December so if you do, there will be more accommodation options available. Debs & Dean Property Owner

  • "We had a great week at Jonwyns."

    The inside of the house is well equipped and to a great standard. Outside space is ample for a family holiday with a grass area and also a large patio are with patio table and chairs. Even has a pizza oven but we weren’t brave enough to fire it up. We made use of the log burner in the main living area on the chillier nights and when the weather was a little inclement. The cleanliness of the property was excellent and no issues that we could find. The location of Jonwyns is ideal to use as a base for North Cornwall and South Devon. Within easy reach of Bude, Wadebridge and other tourist destinations. We walked locally down to the “Port William” pub in Trebarwith Strand. It is a good walk but worth it with the food and beers as a reward. We also ate out in Tintagel at a little vegan restaurant called “Vega”, great food, good portions and friendly proprietor. All in all this is an excellent property and would definitely consider staying again when we are back in the area.

  • "Property was very well located so didn't need to drive far to beaches local eateries or tourist spots."

    Nowhere was really in walking distance to eat out that we found. The property was very comfortable and the garden was excellent for my two dogs. My friend found the bed in the second double bedroom uncomfortable but that is an individual matter. Overall we had an excellent holiday and loved the Netflix and Disney channels for the rainy times.

    Thanks Jane; we are glad you had a lovely time at the house and that your dogs made the most of the garden. We hope the 'rainy times' you mention were few and far between, and that you consider coming back again soon. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage, comfortable and very well equipped with high quality fixtures and fittings."

    We would recommend it and would love to stay here again. However a couple of things need addressing. The heating didn't work well and it took 2 days to get the underfloor heating really warm downstairs and the radiators elsewhere were barely lukewarm for most of the time. Thankfully there were 2 portable radiators which worked well and we were able to warm it up with those. If they hadn't been provided we would have called the owners. We did not need to use the second living room which is just as well as it was like a fridge. Also the bins at the front door were overflowing on the day we arrived with both recycling and rubbish. The bins were not emptied during our stay and no info as to when they should be put out was provided. This needs addressing as it's not a good welcome to what is otherwise a fantastic cottage in a lovely location. Jonwyns is close to beautiful Trebarwith Strand and Tintagel, and many other lovely places. The well enclosed garden was very safe for our dogs.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are sorry you experienced a few issues with the heating. I am not sure what could have been the problem as it works well and kicks in if the air temperature drops below the set comfort temperature (21 degrees by default). The instructions for re-setting this were detailed in the 'in-house' booklet and pdf instructions we sent you. I am not sure what happened with the bins - again there are instructions in the book and we have a private company that collects / empties from their current location outside the property. They should have been empty on your arrival, so I will contact the firm that is responsible to find out why they weren't. Once again, we are glad you had a nice stay and do apologise for these issues. Thank you for booking Jonwyns and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Such a wonderful place."

    We felt very at home, the house has all the home comforts you could want, we especially enjoyed the log fires, selection of board games and bubble baths with a view. All within a short distance to the coast on foot and close to other great places to visit. Our dogs enjoyed the enclosed garden and all the walkies, and it was so lovely to be able to stay somewhere so nice with dogs. Alot of care has been put in to making this a beautiful home. Only things to mention is we did have a problem with the water pressure when someone else was using water the taps upstairs stopped working we were only a group of 3 but imagine this could be a problem for larger groups so may need looking at. Highly recommend you stay here!

    Thank you, Emma, for your positive comments and constructive feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and your time in the property and surrounding area. We value your feedback regarding the water pressure, and your subsequent patience with it. The engineer has now looked at the system and it is operating at full power. We do hope you book again and thank you for being great guests. Property Owner

The property

Jonwyns, a characterful three-bedroom holiday home, is tucked away in the peaceful hamlet of Trewarmett, a stone's throw from Trebarwith Strand and Tintagel in Cornwall.

Brimming with history dating back over 200 years whilst boasting a bright and homely interior, Jonwyns makes an excellent base for an adventure in Cornwall.

Park up in one of three spaces provided before unloading your belongings and making your way inside your new home-from-home to begin your staycation.

As you move through the hallway of this lovely abode you will find the warm and welcoming sitting room; look forward to snuggling up in front of the crackling woodburning stove with your loved ones for an evening.

When stomachs start to rumble, enjoy the open-plan kitchen/diner resting at the garden end of the property, beautifully-adorned with wooden apex ceilings effortlessly blended together with a contemporary décor, complete with underfloor heating to warm your toes.

Uncork a bottle of wine and take a seat on the relaxing sofas or at the dining table as the designated chef utilises the fabulous range of conveniences provided to rustle up an array of hearty treats.

In the warmer months, make mealtimes an alfresco affair by firing up the pizza oven or barbeque in the garden; a truly lovely spot to soak in the last of the evening sun with your favourite tipple.

Alternatively, enjoy the stunning views from the cabin deck, across the fields to the Prince of Wales Tine Mine; a real place of Cornish heritage!

When the darker skies roll in, retreat indoors and climb the stairs to the first floor to catch your rest in one of three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of two doubles, one with access to its own en-suite including a bath, along with a family room fit with a bunk and a single, perfect for sleepovers for the little ones!

At the same time, relatives, friends or loved ones can also retreat to Little Jonwyns, the wonderfully-equipped cabin resting a few steps away to the side of the main garden.

Preparing for another day of adventure in the morning couldn't be easier, with a shower room set across the way from the bedrooms and a handy wet room positioned on the ground floor, also perfect for washing off sandy toes or muddy paws.

For those evenings when you fancy a break from the kitchen, head to the local pub, The Port William Inn, and indulge in some hearty pub fare in a truly magnificent setting where children and dogs are made very welcome.

For a wider variety of choice, the high-street in the nearby village of Tintagel is bustling with an array of delicious eateries to choose from, promising to serve something to cater for all tastes and budgets.

The glorious sands of Trebarwith Beach rest nearby and offer a tranquil spot to paddle the shores of the glistening waters, try your hand at surfing or watch the sun as it sets across the horizon beyond the impressive Gull Rock.

For more seaside adventures, head south along the coast to Port Isaac, Polzeath and Rock, each brimming with sights, attractions and amenities.

From Rock you can easily catch the ferry for a short ride to the very pretty Padstow.

Those looking to explore the great outdoors will be spoilt for choice with both the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Dartmoor National Park within easy reach; lace up your walking boots and traverse through miles of spectacular rural landscape.

With so much to see and do, round up your loved ones and embark on a well-needed adventure to Jonwyns.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


Trebarwith 1.4 miles; Tintagel 1.7 miles; Camelford 4.3 miles; Port Isaac 8.6 miles.

The small hamlet of Trewarmett enjoys wonderful views across the valley and is a stones throw from nearby Tintagel. A short stroll brings you to the high cliffs and dramatic scenery of the north Cornish coastline. Perfectly placed for walking the South West Coastal Path, exploring the high places of nearby Bodmin Moor, or for lazing on the beach at nearby Trebarwith Strand, it is a perfectly located holiday base. The famous fishing harbour village of Port Isaac and the town of Tintagel, with its tourist attractions and King Arthur’s legendary castle, are both a short drive, while the stunning surfing beach at Polzeath is a mere nine miles away. Slaughtersbridge, where King Arthur reputedly fought his last battle, is a short distance from the hamlet and a drive north along the coast takes in the beautiful cove at Crackington Haven. Delabole Quarry is just down the road and is an interesting tourist attraction with stunning views. It is the gateway to great countryside walks, whilst it also offers local buses which serve numerous towns and villages nearby.

Note: This property sleeps 8 people, 6 people in the Jonwyns main house and 2 in Little Jonwyns the cabin, photos of the cabin coming soon.
