As the name suggests this was the town's Post Office for many years until the 1980's. Thought to be about 400 years old, the cottage exudes character and original features. There is also still intact the old post box and stamp vending machine, which are visible from outside. A huge benefit is the off road parking space for two vehicles.

The cosy sitting room has exposed beams and a brick inglenook fireplace with LPG coal effect fire. There is a separate dining room with an ornate Victorian fireplace and a cupboard housing the electric meters. Situated beneath the dining room is a cellar with ceiling light point and shelving offering good storage space.

An inner hall gives access to the ground floor cloaks room with WC and wash basin and there is a stained glass window feature.

At the rear is a garden room with a door to outside.

The impressive kitchen/breakfast room was refurbished around about a year ago. There are ample base and wall units and a centre island. A Rangemaster cooker has electric ovens and hot plates and there is also a built-in microwave, wine cooler, dishwasher and fridge. The kitchen has an engineered oak floor and there are glazed doors leading out onto the raised decking area.

The laundry/utility room has two fitted base cupboards, sink and solid oak worktop. Plumbing for a washing machine and also space for a tumble dryer and freezer. It also houses the boiler and there is a door to outside.

Stairs rise to the first floor. The master bedroom has a window from which the lovely views to the countryside can be enjoyed. There is an en-suite shower room with WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. There are three further double bedrooms, one with original oak flooring and another with a period fireplace. The landing has original oak flooring, a fitted bookcase and a bench seat, and is presently used as a study and could also be used as an occasional fifth bedroom.

The main bathroom has a white suite of bath with electric shower above, WC and wash hand basin.

The rear garden is enclosed. There is a raised decking area, ideal for al fresco dining in the summer. Steps lead down to an attractive stoned area and there is also a flag stone terrace. Flower beds contain a variety of mature plants and shrubs and there is also an ornamental wildlife pond.
