Tinworth is a village in Cornwall, England, near the coast.

It is a half-magical dwelling, with a wizarding community established in secret alongside the Muggle one soon after the signature of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy in the 17th century. According to historian Bathilda Bagshot, Tinworth was one of a handful of villages that were "notable homes to knots of wizarding families who lived alongside tolerant and sometimes Confunded Muggles."[1]

Bridget Wenlock lived in this village, and it is here that she devised the theorem that established the magical properties of the number seven. During her lifetime, she was a common sight throughout the town, as her paranoid and absentmindedness often led her to seek out notes she had written in invisible ink and then misplaced.[2]

Shell Cottage, the home of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour after their marriage in 1997, is located in the outskirts of Tinworth. It is located near the ocean and is a "beautiful place," according to Harry Potter.
