The Old Post Office is a spacious detached property, around 250 years old, with lots of character including beamed ceilings, flagged floors and an open fireplace. The cottage benefits from oil fired central heating and double glazing through out. 

The property consists of:-


A stone flagged entrance hall with radiator and coat pegs leads to ............

The Sitting Room

A spacious, relaxing room with exposed wooden beams, views across the village green, a window seat and wood burning stove. The room is well furnished, with two two-seater sofas and two chairs, which means there is space for everyone to enjoy a cosy winter's evening around the fire. There is a colour television, DVD player, CD/radio and a selection of books, guides and maps for use by visitors. 

The Kitchen

Fully equipped, with a gas range cooker complete with double oven, grill, 4 burners, electric griddle and plate warmer. There is also a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer and microwave. crockery, cutlery, kitchen tea towel and a hand towel are all provided.

The Dining Room

Formerly the old cart shed, the dining room has a beamed ceiling, stone flagged floor, a log effect electric stove and CD/radio. The dining table, which seats six people comfortably, easily transforms to become a slate-bed snooker/pool table - a great room for teenagers (or adults!!) to occupy themselves! There are also a selection of board games.

A highchair and wipeable floormat are available for younger children.

From the stone flagged entrance hall stairs lead to ............
