A wonderful look back in time.

As national trust members it was great to tick this one off the list to visit. A small but fabulously quirky cottage is wonderful.

Stop a while opposite here and you can take some great photographs of this traditionally built original building that at one time must have been the centre of the town If only it was open all year as it would have been great for us to have gone inside but then most of the Town was closed anyway Maybe a...

A lovely small medieval manor house which is very quaint and quirky with a beautiful cottage garden. Strange steps to one of the upper bedrooms which seem to jut out of the wall. These need to be ascended carefully. A nice little visit if you are National Trust members and are in the area.

We could not go inside as it was closed. We took lots of photos as the exterior is really photo worthy. What a pity it is not open all year round for all tourists to enjoy.

What an absolutely charming old property; sagging roof and all. Originally a thatched farmhouse dating from the 14th century, it has undergone many changes in its lifetime and served as the local Post Office and Postmaster's residence in the 19th century. Only open during the Summer season, so check the National Trust website before visiting.

The old post office in Tintagel is after the King Arthur sites, one of the most popular visitor's destination and is conveniently located on the one long winding street that forms the main thru-fare of the town. This according to the site--is one of the National Trust's earliest acquisitions. The house is unusual to say the least and the only... More

If you have a short time worth popping in, lovely garden and shop too. Interesting to go back in time!

The smallest NT property we've ever visited, but just as charming as a site many times is size. Despite the later alterations to the building you still get a very clear feeling of life in a bygone age. Don't miss out this short but interesting visit if you're in the area.

This National Trust property is well worth a visit. As a member entrance was free. Non-members would need to weigh up the cost as it takes no more than about 45 minutes to an hour to look around. Having said that, even the children found plenty to interest them. Some quirky features and lots of historic interest.

Thank Steve S
