Budlake Old Post Office
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.
You can wander around a charming garden bursting with traditional flowers, lovingly cared for by volunteers. There's a vegetable plot too, which once played a vital role in the 'Dig for Victory' campaign. Why not picnic in the garden whilst you're there?
Budlake Old Post Office is waiting to be explored.
