    “We have stayed at the Old Post Office many times and always find that it suits our needs - being close to family and friends and within easy reach of the places we like to visit.”

    We intend to make further visits in the future. ...

    We intend to make further visits in the future. The photographs need to be updated as they are at least two years out of date. It would be nice to have fewer but better quality kitchen utensils. The new shower was very welcome. Maybe the settees could be replaced next? (Bit "solid"). Having said that, we found that for four adults and a three year old we had sufficient space, the cottage was warm and cosy, there was plenty of hot water and parking on the road was fine. The caretaker, Gwen, was very helpful (as always). There was plenty of sanitiser and anti-bac in the relevant places. We did enjoy our holiday - thank you for making it possible. So nice to be back after having to forego our planned visit last year.

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.

Shower-room (suite).

A good situation for both town and country, with good beaches and scenic Coast Path walks nearby. Down Thomas: tiny village (PO/shop, pub), a mile from a sandy beach and nearby golf course at Bovisand Bay, and 5 miles south of the centre of Plymouth with its theatre, cinemas, shops, Hoe, Barbican and history.
