Tintagel Old Post Office

Tintagel Old Post Office

Nestling among the modern buildings of Tintagel high street, this unusual and atmospheric 14th-century yeoman's farmhouse, with a famously wavy roof, 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.

  • Samplers

    On display throughout the house, are wonderful examples of needlework. Dating from the 1700s our samplers by young girls, aged eight to 15 years, show amazing skill and dedication to the art of needlework.

  • Postal memorabilia

    Remembering the house's short history as a letter receiving office in the Victorian period, visit our post room to see a selection of postal equipment.
