    “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. ...

    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

On the edge of Down Thomas, looking over meadows, a semi-detached, early Victorian cottage, one of five forming a courtyard at the back.

Small front sitting area (table/chairs) and pathway (20 yards) to own lawned garden (barbecue). Inside, light and comfy.

Six steps up to porch and front door.

Living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with slate floor, central work island/breakfast bar, gas 'living flame' fire, TV/DVD and iPod dock.

White-tiled and chrome bathroom (suite, shower over shorter than average bath).

Upstairs, three bedrooms (shuttered windows, limited clothes hanging/storage space) - a double (5' bed), another double, and a single.

A good situation for both town and country, with good beaches and scenic Coast Path walks nearby.
