This must be on of the smallest National Trust properties. The young man volunteer was pleasant and very helpful. Rooms had a very historical feeling about them. Stairs for the first floor are quite difficult if you have any mobility issues. Garden is a little wonder, we were here in April I bet this looks wonderful in the summer. Large... More

Although the old Post Office is small. It is well worth a visit. It is a good insight into how things were years. The small garden at the back is lovely with a good view. With a souvenir shop too

We came across this little gem by accident and thought we would take a look. It is worth a quick trip to if you are in the area and it's very well looked after by the National Trust.

The Old Post Office is an old hall and beautiful garden. Be sure to talk with the docents are they are full of interesting information about the building and the former inhabitants.

Lovely building and interesting history but only worth a visit if you are already in the neighbourhood as it's 5 small rooms and a garden

Well worth the modest admission fee. The Trust volunteers were very informative and cheerful. Located on the Main Street of the village.

This property is small and only a couple of rooms to get into. The head room is low in places so watch your head on the beams etc. The rooms are nice and information cards in rooms. There is a small shop inside the building. The garden is small but nice. I would recommend going here to have a look... More

With most national trust properties being huge with acres and acres of parkland it's a nice change to see something completely different. It is small and doesn't take many minutes to visit but is an interesting stop off on the way to or from the castle which is why most tourists are in Tintagel in the first place. National trust...

We popped in here after visiting the castle. The boys (9&6) followed the kids trail which taught them about how the people lived in the building & abput its unusual features. Staff were very friendly & knowledgeable. The boys enjoyed a game of quoits in the garden too! The steps up to the upper floors are very steep & if... More
