    “Ideal for our needs”

    We are just coming to the end of our week in the Old Post Office and we have really enjoyed it. The village of Down Thomas is quiet and rural, despite being only four miles or so from the city of Plymouth. This means you get the best of both worlds. There is a good local shop and pub a couple of minutes walk away in the village and another decent pub about 25 minutes walk down the lane. We actually had a walk to Plymouth one day, you can take the cliff path to Mount Batten then get the foot ferry. A taxi back in the evening was very reasonable. The house is comfy and cosy but not too small. Having two bathrooms makes it ideal for two couples/families and a teenager. Said teenager was pleased that the Wi-fi is faster than at home lol. All the bedrooms are a decent size, even the single. The kitchen is really well equipped and contains everything we’ve needed to make proper meals. The bonus is the garden which doesn’t appear on any of the website photos - it is a huge lawned area. It isn’t immediately obvious as you have to go through a courtyard and down a little path to get to it. The cottage was well priced (given that it is high season) and we are very happy with our decision to stay here.

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.
