Digory Isbell’s cottage, Trewint
"Let us go to yonder house, where the stone porch is, and ask for something" John Nelson, a Yorkshire stonemason and one of John Wesley's itinerant preachers, made this suggestion to his colleague John Downes on August 29th 1743, as Trewint had no inn. Wesley himself later visited this cottage on six occasions. According to LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) , "there is no other place in Cornwall, and few in the country, where the authentic atmosphere of early Methodism can be so keenly felt".

The cottage was restored in 1950 and is now a museum, and has the message "You are welcome; please walk in (remembering that this is a place of worship)". In fact, the museum, on Wesley Way, an attractive back lane through the small village, is currently closed.
