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.

Holidays sometimes don't lend themselves to peace, calm and quiet. The Cottage and Prayer Garden are an opportunity to reflect on spiritual matters, while getting insight into the history of the Methodist movement and the role Cornwall played. The Curator does a marvelous job, welcomes visitors with refreshments, is knowledgeable, and allows the visitor time for introspection. As a practising... More

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. Our advice is to talk with him as he is a fascinating and interesting person... More

This quaint old cottage has strong Methodist connections and is well worth a visit whether or not you are a Methodist .The Curator is on site for part of the week and is very knowledgeable, interesting to talk to and will give you a cup of coffee while chatting. Do phone him to pick a good time for a visit.

A small cottage in Trewint, where John Wesley stayed on his visits to the area. In process of being renovated, but gives a clear idea of the simple room he would have used. Warm welcome, tea and cake, and the story well told by the curator. Lovely prayer garden opposite. Limited opening around the weekend.
