Found this place while on holiday in the local area. Shown around by the person who lived next door. Loads of local interest.

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.

This is a lovely little cottage with lots of history relating to the Church. The gentleman who only lives next door gave us a guided tour. He then offers to either leave you to read the literature or talk to you about the history instead....More
