The Old Post Office


Description



The Old Post Office on The Green is an attractive and charming period cottage, believed to be over 200 years old, and built of stone with a whitened rough-cast rendered exterior under a thatched roof. Serving as the village post office until 1935, it was formerly three dwellings, but now stands as one detached house, providing spacious accommodation, whilst enjoying many features such as sloping ceilings, oak beams, open fire and a large enclosed garden. Sensitively modernised, the cottage retains its natural character, blending old world charm with modern day conveniences.
Occupying an elevated position on the southern slopes of Hardown Hill, facing Stonebarrow Hill – which is owned by the National Trust – it is located between Morcombelake and the sea. The surrounding countryside and Heritage coastline is some of the most beautiful in the area, and officially designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within walking distance is the National Trust’s Golden Cap Estate, where southern England’s highest cliff can be found – composed of sandstone, and crowned by yellow gorse, it makes a good vantage point from where magnificent views along the coast take in Portland Bill, where a lighthouse has guarded the promontory since the 18th century. The villages and beaches of Chideock and Charmouth (novelist Jane Austen’s favourite resort) are both within 2½ miles. For a great day out, Bournemouth is within easy driving distance. The pier and beautiful sandy beach are well-renowned, but the other great attraction is the unusually high proportion of green space, with millions of pine trees and thousands of acres of public gardens. The best known is Compton Gardens – seven gardens, each with a different theme, from Japanese to Italian. Village store ¼ mile. Shop/P.O. ½ mile.

Large beamed living room with open fire. Large dining room with decorative fireplace. Well-equipped modern galley-style kitchen with breakfast bar. Twin bedroom. Shower room with toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms, each with beamed sloping ceiling; one with low ceiling and en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet (low ceiling), one with 5ft wrought-iron and brass bed and wash basin. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.

With a wide and varied selection of cottages and holiday lets in Dorset Go2 offers you the ideal way to make the most of your break in this beautiful and largely unspoilt county, where there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site, with dramatic coves and stunning cliffs, topped by the South West Coast Path, which offers some wonderful views. Here you’ll find characterful seaside towns like Swanage and Lyme Regis as well as the wide sweep of Weymouth Beach. If you’re looking for somewhere more lively, then Bournemouth won’t disappoint. This is one of Britain’s most popular resorts and has attractions and entertainments in abundance. Nearby Poole is quieter, but still has much to offer. Try and make the trip to Brownsea Island, a fabulous nature reserve here. Inland on your holiday in Dorset you can enjoy the rolling hills that are so characteristic of the county and explore what has become known as “Thomas Hardy Country”.

The county town of Dorchester, with its High Street lined with 17th and 18th Century houses, is little changed from Hardy’s day, while the pretty town of Shaftesbury has been used as a location in countless films set in Olde England.
