One look at The Old Post Office, situated on the Somerset and Dorset border and you will know you have made the right choice for your family holiday cottage. This pretty 17th century chocolate box thatched cottage has been carefully modernised, retaining its original architectural character, whilst making sure guests enjoy a comfortable holiday. It has a large private garden ideal for an evening glass of wine, and for the kids to run around and play games. There’s a village pub a mile away, and within a half an hours drive you can be in Lyme Regis with the whole of the Jurassic Coast to explore.
The Old Post Office has a large beamed living room with open fire and flagstone floor, which is located opposite the separate beamed dining room. Towards the rear of the cottage is the well-equipped beamed kitchen with gas range (for cooking) and tiled floor. The family bathroom with separate shower cubicle, roll top bath and toilet is neatly located at the foot of the stairs and is a very good size. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, including a double bedroom with 5ft bed and TV, a further facing double bedroom, and a lovely twin bedroom.
The Old Post Office has a large enclosed lawned garden to one side, as well as a pretty patio with garden furniture. There is also a second garden to the other side of the cottage, which features a pond; this garden is kept locked for the safety of any children but a key is provided to guests. The Old Post Office has off road parking for 3 to 4 cars.
The Old Post Office is an ideal family holiday home, with a large garden being the perfect place to relax in the evenings enjoying a meal or glass of wine. Many other attractions await, including Glastonbury Tor, Cheddar and the historic town of Sherborne. Shops are available in Shepton Beauchamp [2 miles away], and Ilminster [road closed at present means its 5 miles away].
The Old Post Office is happy to class itself as a baby and toddler friendly cottage, offering excellent facilities and information for families and meeting child safety guidelines. Facilities included are a cot, a high chair, a stair gate if necessary and a microwave. Suggestions for playgrounds, soft play centres, beaches and child friendly places to eat nearby are also provided in the cottage, along with information regarding the nearest chemist, doctor, supermarket and delivery services.
