Description

This charming 14th-century building is one of the oldest post offices in the world and is located in the heart of Tintagel village, just a stone's throw from the legendary Tintagel Castle. As you make your way down the winding lanes, you'll be struck by the beauty of the surrounding countryside, with its rugged coastline, sandy beaches, and rolling hills.

Once you arrive at the Old Post Office, you'll be immediately struck by its unique charm and character. The building's slate roof and whitewashed walls give it a timeless quality, while the quaint garden, complete with a traditional well, is the perfect place to stop and take in the sights and sounds of Cornwall.

Inside, the Old Post Office is a treasure trove of historic artefacts and fascinating exhibits. The building's low ceilings, crooked walls, and uneven floors are a testament to its age, and visitors can marvel at the ingenuity of the 14th-century builders who created such a durable and enduring structure.

One of the highlights of any visit to the Old Post Office is the chance to learn about its fascinating history. Originally built as a farmhouse, the building was converted into a post office in the 19th century and served the local community for over a hundred years. Today, it stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of Cornwall and its people.
