We had a warm welcome from John who guide. WE had the opportunity to visit the house and watch an interesting video on John Wesley's life and Mission. It's worth a stop over on the way to Penzance or St Ives.

The cottage itself is very small - really only two small rooms to visit. However, the guides make you feel very welcome, offering free refreshment and providing an interesting history of Methodism.
