Budlake Old Post Office

Budlake Old Post Office is filled with vintage items and curiosities.

Discover a mid-20th century time capsule, filled with commemorative tins, haberdashery and boiled sweets in screw top jars.

Just a stones throw away from Killeton house, you'll find a postcard perfect 19th century cottage which once housed a Post Office serving local residents.

Inside, you can gaze upon shelves of vintage items, use a Bakelite telephone and take home a quarter of traditional sweets in a paper bag.
