    “The Old Post Office is a charming little property set in the stunning village of Coln St.”

    Aldwyns. Opposite the local shop and just 100 yards from the local pub, it's everything you want. The house has a gorgeous kitchen and dining room, both lit by log burners and decent sized bedrooms. We really enjoyed our stay here!!!

The property

The Old Post Office, located in one of the most charming villages in the area, is a true Cotswolds' jewel.

You won't be surprised to learn that it used to be the village post office, with dwelling quarters spread out over the three stories.

It has had a total renovation and is now furnished and decorated in a cool, contemporary design, all the while preserving a tonne of character and charm.

The spacious and exquisitely decorated lounge is located on the ground level and is furnished with big, cushy sofas that are ideal for watching the newest shows on the big flatscreen TV or simply unwinding with a nice book.

This leads into a sizable dining room with a fireplace, which is the ideal place to savour your newest culinary creation and pass the time with family or friends.

The gorgeous farmhouse-style kitchen with its magnificent vaulted ceiling is located at the back of the home, with views across the charming, fenced garden.

You could also curl up by yet another log-burner if you wanted a little peace and quiet.

With the four bedrooms distributed throughout the two upper stories, the rooms are roomy and can easily accommodate eight guests.

Three bedrooms—two doubles and one twin—are located on the first floor and share a recently renovated family bathroom.

A lucky couple can enjoy spectacular views of the village and surrounding countryside from the master bedroom, a gorgeous suite on the top level.

There is a sizable garden outside with a grassy area, a terrace, and plenty of seats.

The property is in the centre of the community, as you might expect from a historic post office, and is immediately across the street from an award-winning local store that sells a variety of fruit.

The New Inn, a fantastic village bar, is also nearby and can be found around 100 yards down a lane from your front door.

The Coln Valley-based community is one of the Cotswolds' premier destinations, offering countless opportunities for strolls and bike rides just outside your door.

The famous village of Bibury is about two miles distant, and Burford and Cirencester are only a short drive away.

Overall, The Old Post Office is a great spot to unwind and take in all that this beautiful and undeveloped region of The Cotswolds has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.
