This must be one of the smallest National Trust properties, but it's lovely. Interesting, with good information cards and a helpful guide. The garden was lovely and really at it's best in the summer.

If ever you were to put the word quaint to a place - this would be it. Watch your head as you go around it. Lovely little place, I bet you'll have a chuckle about 'being left on the shelf'. Only takess about 15 minutes to look around, so plabe this as a day out, simply a stop by.

This old post office is actually an old house (17th century) with period furniture and a lovely garden out back. Entry fee is quite reasonable, excellent information and descriptions are available in each of the rooms. It served as a post office for a very brief period of time and the name has stuck. Really a must see if you... More

Lovely and quirky, really enjoyed the history of the building. The staff were very informative and helpful in answering any questions we had. The garden was beautiful and there was old fashioned clothes and games for the children to enjoy. Would recommend to visit.

The Old Post office is a National Trust property and although not very big, it was really interesting. This was a medieval house that in Victorian times was used as a post office. When you venture upstairs there is a further 'shelf' area in the attic where the single women and girls could sleep separated from the males and when... More

As we handed over our £4 per adult admission fee the lady on the door briefly explained that if we joined the National Trust we would be admitted for free.We took some paperwork and proceeded to have a good look around this beautifully kept old house.All were warned beforehand about the low door frames.There are several little rooms with decor...

We had visited Tintagel castle, and since we had a National Trust pass, decided to have a quick look in the Old Post Office. It is a gorgeous little building, and it was nice to look through the rooms. We didn't have time to spend too long unfortunately, but were glad we could visit briefly. There are lots of high,...
