The property

This semi-detached Victorian cottage is one of a group of five creating a courtyard beside meadows on the fringes of Down Thomas.

Light and comfy, it is homely and welcoming accommodation.

Take the steps up to the front door and you will find yourself in the lovely open plan living area, complete with a well equipped kitchen area with breakfast bar for morning coffee and the paper, a dining table and comfy seats beside the cosy living flame gas fire.

The downstairs bathroom is neat and shiny in white and chrome.

Head upstairs to your three bedrooms, all peaceful and charming for good nights’ sleeps after days exploring the interesting surroundings, plus a shower room.

To the front of the cottage you have a little seating area with table and chairs or follow the path to your own lawn where you can fire up the barbecue for alfresco lunches and suppers.

This is an excellent location for exploring city and coast, with the sandy beach at Bovisand Bay just a mile from the cottage and the Marine Conservation Centre at Wembury beach, where you can swim and explore the rock pools, not much further.

For bright lights, you are just a few miles from the heart of the city of Plymouth where you can eat out, visit the National Marine Aquarium, discover the maritime history or catch a show at the theatre or cinema.

water sports enthusiasts will love the well equipped Mount Batten centre beside the marina or stick to dry land to walk the South West Coast Path or play golf along the clifftops.

With all this on the doorstep, The Old Post Office is an excellent base for a fascinating break.
