Cute and cosy! The Old Post Office is a self-catering gem located in the lovely village of Bentley. Having been renovated from its former use as the village post office, this beautifully presented holiday cottage is perfect for couples or families looking for a pretty bolthole from which to explore from. Inside The Old Post Office there’s an open plan living area offering guests effortless space for entertaining and cooking with the fully-equipped kitchen. The woodburner takes centre stage in this generous room and creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere during the chillier season. With two bathrooms on offer there is no compromise for guests on either bedroom. There is a private rear patio area to enjoy a spot of al-fresco dining or just soaking up the peace and quiet of this lovely location.
