The Old Post Office was closed when we visited, but we enjoyed standing outside it, taking photographs & being amazed it is still standing. What a delightful place. Worth a detour.

There isn't too much one can do here, but it's a very unique building because of its age. Amazing to be standing over all these years and it does show by the sag in the roof. At least stop and take a photo!!!

If you're used to grand National trust properties with acres of land then this is the complete opposite. A small, very cramped cottage which could get congested 'in season'? The way they have preserved and maintained the authenticity of this building is amazing and it's...More

What a quaint little building, with it's dipped roof and gorgeous Cornwall stone stone walls. Beware low beams if you're below 4ft you might get away without bending. This little gem is a real step back in time. You get to see and feel what...More

This old post office was interesting as well as a beautiful setting to visit and relax in the garden. There were several models of the post office dotted around the grounds and we very much enjoyed our visit.

The 1st property saved by the National Trust and over a 100 years ago. Fascinating to imagine it back in the day when this was a remote hamlet. Not just a post office a house and home with must to see.

We only went past we didn’t pay the entry fee. The building is beautiful and the wavy roof is famous.

I have been before - well worth going. Interesting bits of history. Won't take you too long. But, worth a visit. Went solo as you cannot take dogs into national trust properties. This is not a problem!
