The property

Dawlish 2.3 miles.

The Old Post Office, a characterful, semi-detached cottage is nestled in the quiet rural village of Holcombe, tucked away in the Devon countryside.

The two-bed property is a short stroll down to the sea and within easy reach of attractions along the south Devon coast making it an ideal base for families or small groups of friends seeking a tranquil retreat.

The cottage that has been lovingly restored by its owners over the past 25 years boasts a wonderful woodburner to keep your toes toasty after a long day of seaside adventures.

Enter through the front stable door - there is an array of amenities - a welcoming open-plan living room with a TV, for added entertainment, the kitchen, to prepare some yummy evening meals, and a dining area to celebrate a superb holiday.

As the evening draws to a close - climb the staircase to the first bedroom featuring a bunk bed (suitable for children) and has views out to the garden and surrounding countryside.

The master bedroom has a well-presented double bed and period furniture.

The shower room is located between the bedrooms and has a powerful shower, perfect for rinsing off in after a muddy walk.

Outside, enjoy a morning cup of coffee, or evening glass of wine at the table, or simply relax on a sun lounger and appreciate the serene, rural surroundings.

If you don’t fancy cooking, just up the road is the village pub The Castle Inn, worth a visit for some tasty food.

As the road through Holcombe is on a slight gradient, the uphill walk to the pub can be a challenge although much easier coming home!

Explore the charming coastal towns of Teignmouth and Dawlish, just a short distance from The Old Post Office.

Take a leisurely stroll along the Teignmouth Grand Pier, feel the sand between your toes at Teignmouth Beach, and indulge in some delicious local cuisine at Finn McCools.

In Dawlish, immerse yourself in the tranquility of Oaklands Wood, cycle along the picturesque coast with a bike from Bike Box Hire Devon, or simply unwind and watch the waves roll in at Dawlish Town Beach.

With so much to see and do in the area, your stay at The Old Post Office promises to be a memorable and relaxing retreat in the Devon countryside.
