The Old Post Office is a very spacious and individual detached house built in circa 1956 with later additions, having re-constituted stone faced elevations. It was at one time the village post office/shop which closed in 1998. Under the current ownership since 1999 there has been a whole number of improvements and alterations and features include oil-fired central heating, replacement sealed unit windows (part leaded light style) and a security alarm system. The accommodation is both extensive and versatile with the sitting room featuring a stone fireplace with multi fuel burner. The kitchen and garden/breakfast room could be knocked through to create one very large kitchen/dining room. There is also a large main loft with tables set up for a model railway.
The lovely gardens are a further feature being well established and enjoy a good degree of privacy with views to the church and distant countryside.
