Tintagel Old Post Office
Type: Historic Site
This 14thC medieval longhouse in the centre of Tintagel is one of the Trust's most delightful small buildings. The ancient undulating roof and massive chimney stack lend character to a fascinating building. The central hall is open to the great oak trusses and slates of the roof. A pleasing collection of country furniture, fine needlework samplers and a charming garden all add interest. During Victorian times one room was used as the letter-receiving office for the village and so the house became known as the Old Post Office.
