    The property has character and is spacious and comfortable downstairs with a good sized dining table, settees and a decent kitchen. The downstairs tv is difficult to turn on but we found that if you persevere it works ok. Nice shower upstairs next to a good sized bedroom. A few areas need attention - the upstairs toilet seat is wobbly and needs fixing, some serious dusting is needed above eye level in the bedroom which you notice when you lie on the bed and look upwards, the lampshades and the skirting around the ceiling were thick with dust, and lastly the upstairs tv... when you switch it off it comes back on again on its own so you have to turn it off at the mains every time. The outside table does not look terribly appetising and it would be good to have a table cloth to cover it before eating off it. The parking space is right next to the back door, off road and secluded. All in all we enjoyed our stay but a bit more care and attention would improve the appeal of The Old Post Office.

The property

Arranged over two floors The Old Post Office is a clever conversion of an original building now presented as a Dorset cottage.

With a feature spiral staircase leading to the bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, the ground floor living area has a spacious open plan feel to it.

The Old Post Office provides parking for two cars and a little outside patio area where you can enjoy al fresco meals at any time of the day.

Located just five minutes' walk to Hope Square, with its numerous restaurants, bistros, pubs and coffee shops The Old Post Office is in the perfect location for a self-catering Dorset holiday.

The beautiful old harbour is just a minute through Hope Square.

A leisurely walk along the harbour and across the bridge will take you to the town centre where you will find all the usual high street shops and in the narrow streets the local quirky shops worth browsing in.

On the edge of town is the aware-winning main beach with its golden sands and shallow waters.

Close to the property you will discover Newtons Cove, a pretty pebble beach area favoured by locals and children alike who love to explore the rock pools when the tide is out and The Nothe Gardens great for a picnic on a sunny day or for enjoying a costal walk with amazing views over to Portland.

A comfortable and cosy property, perfect for two, and located where you can easily walk to all the local attractions makes The Old Post Office the perfect holiday property in which to enjoy a well-earned holiday.
