Old Post Office - National Trust, Tintagel

One of the Trust's most delightful medieval buildings, enhanced by a cottage garden.

One of the Trust's earliest acquisitions, this quaint house and garden was once in danger of being demolished. Dated circa 1380 it is a rare example of a medieval 'longhouse' modified over 600 years, yet retaining its charm.

Acquired in 1903, this unusual and atmospheric 14th-century yeoman's farmhouse is the Trust's first built property in Cornwall. With a famously wavy slate roof and over 600 years of history it beckons the curious to explore.  The name dates from the Victorian period when it briefly held a licence to be the letter receiving station for the district. 

Come and see items on display including Victorian postal equipment, a selection of samplers and furniture dating back to the 16th century. Retreat from the busy high street in our beautiful back garden.
