Cotehele Church & Post Office

Church in the grounds of the house where we met a volunteer who was vigorously polishing the woodwork inside and told us it was a never-ending job

A short stroll across the grounds takes you to the village post office

Outside double toilet!

All kept as it was in the 1950's/1960's

National Trust - A La Ronde

This is a very quirky 16 sided building near Exmouth built by two sisters containing many odd collections of 'stuff' collected during their trips around the world.
Well worth visiting. All quite bizarre!
