One of the Trust's most delightful medieval buildings, enhanced by a cottage garden

Acquired in 1903, this unusual and atmospheric 14th-century yeoman's farmhouse is the Trust's first built property in Cornwall. With a famously wavy slate roof and over 600 years of history it 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.

Come and see items on display including Victorian postal equipment, a selection of samplers and furniture dating back to the 16th century. Retreat from the busy high street in our beautiful back garden.
