The Old Post Office has about five rooms nicely furnished in old-fashion style. Remarkable is the access to a platform, consisting of a few steps almost vertically up. There is a nice garden as well.

The post office and house are very small but it's lovely. A lovely garden but it dose get busy and as its small you need to get here at a good time. It still has a working post box,which we used.

It reportedly the oldest building in Tintagel, it only costs £4 per adult and is worth a look around, only 5 small rooms to look around and the small garden, so if you find yourself at a loose end in Tintagel pop in and take...More

Won't take long but worth the visit. Looks tiny but lots packed in and a great little garden . Exhibition of quilts may not be to my liking but the building and rooms worth it.
