About Susie or Peter Watson

After searching for more than five years I finally found my perfect home - a quaint old fisherman's cottage - Fumbles Cottage.

As commitments prevent my constant occupancy, I am able to offer the cottage as a base for relaxing and enjoying the vibrant atmosphere of the old market town, or touring and exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Susie or Peter Watson purchased this cottage in 2013

Delightful, spacious cottage in great location, with easy allocated parking nearby.

  • 5 of 5

Fumbles Cottage is a little gem! All the rooms are tastefully decorated and well appointed. There is everything there that you need. It was nice to be able to catch the sun in both the front garden and the courtyard at the back. All shops and restaurants are within walking distance, as are the bus and train stations. Allocated parking is a bonus anywhere in Penzance, and it's a great base from which to explore the rest of the county. The owners of the cottage were very friendly and accommodating. We will be back!

Pretty little cottage

  • 5 of 5

A very pretty little seaside cottage,located near the rail and bus stations, but far enough from the main road to be quiet at night. Brightly decorated inside, with a larger than expected 2nd bedroom- - would be perfect for a couple of kids.

Overall pretty near perfect!

Amazing stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant fisherman's cottage with lots of attention to detail, could not fault at all, had everything you could need and more. Easy parking, near to loads of attractions and easy to get around, town and harbour are a 2 minute stroll. Wouldnt hesitate to book again or recommend. The owner was really helpful and has put alot of effort to making this cottage what it is. Felt modern and fresh while still feeling like a quaint fisherman's cottage.

From a Canadian perspective

  • 5 of 5

I found Fumbles Cottage to be very clean, very comfortable and perfectly situated for someone like myself; travelling without a car. Only a block from the Main Street and a very handy pub, it was still quiet at night and close to several delightful cafes which meant if I chose not to prepare my meals in the well equipped kitchen, I could easily pick up something within a few minutes walk. The small binder of helpful information left on the coffee table was a thoughtful touch in case I had any questions regarding how appliances worked etc but Susie was very quick to respond to any emails I sent so I had no concerns in that regard. The close proximity of the cottage to both the train and bus stations meant I could easily explore the surrounding areas, without the use of a car. If I return to Penzance in the future, I will certainly stay at Fumbles Cottage again.

Comfortable, convenient base to explore Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable cottage in a quiet location but within minutes of Penzance station and town centre. Excellently located to explore this part of Cornwall - lots of stunning gardens as well as the local art galleries, not to mention of course the spectacular coastline for walking etc. The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard and comfortably furnished, particularly the bedrooms. It's actually more spacious than the photos suggest and there's good cooking and dining space as well as the lounge itself. The bathroom is downstairs but it's large and modern. On our arrival all the rooms and their contents were immaculately clean. Booking was made easy by the friendly owners who provided very helpful arrival information etc and answered all our enquiries promptly. I would definitely recommend Fumbles Cottage to anyone wishing to explore the beauty of Cornwall - we had a car but I think this would be a good base to explore by public transport with the train and bus stations so close bye. There are plenty of useful food shops in the town (plus 3 big supermarkets 5 mins drive away!) and loads of lovely pubs and restaurants, if you want a break from the kitchen.
