    A lovely cottage, very well equipped with everything you will need, comfortable and spacious. A great location for exploring the area. Road noise was not a problem, and the pub did not disturb us either.

    We have stayed here several times and just cannot fault it. The usual aspects of cleanliness position and equipment are all excellent but the owners of the cottage go beyond that to make us their guests feel welcome. Its the homely touches of fresh milk flowers biscuits or cake that really make the difference. I wish your ratings went over and beyond a 10 because I feel the Old Post Offices certainly deserves an 11

    Stayed at many holiday cottages and the 'Old Post Office' rates amongst the best. The friendly pub next door was a bonus. A good location to explore the interesting towns,villages and canals all within easy driving distance.

    The cottage was lively, well equipped and had a great pub next door. The location is lovely with some nice walks to enjoy.

    Worst holiday accommodation my family has stayed in. Very dirty and outdated and definitely not worth the money. Full of spiders and webs. Leaking conservatory. Wardrobes smell damp. Heating/hot water controls are outside. We left or holiday early as could not suffer 1 more night in that cottage. Would not recommend 👎🏼

    A very well equipped and comfortable cottage. The road which is very close would not suit families with very young children as the traffic did go by quite fast and there is only a small garden back and front. But this did not bother us greatly having older children. The local pub is just feet away (I even went in there one night with my slippers on) and serves some very good real ales.

    The old post office was really nice. It was clean, comfortable and had activities for the childen. The welcoming tray with tea, coffee, cake and milk was really nice. The cottage is in a beautiful location with a lake near by. The only issue was the parking it was difficult to see out when getting out of due to the hedgerow.

    We had a fantastic stay at the Old Post Office. The house was beautiful, very well equipped and absolutely spotless! We felt very welcome when we arrived to a tray with coffee, tea and goodies for us and the children. With this cottage as a base, there are so many lovely outings and trips to nearby towns and sights. It was a perfect house in beautiful surroundings and we hope we will be back soon!

    Cottage is comfortable, clean and warm though you may need log fire in lounge in cold weather. The actual location is very pleasant, the pub next door this is very handy, although you do not hear a sound from it.

    The old post office is a lovely cottage and is very comfortable. We stayed over new year and the Christmas decorations were still up - very festive. The owner was very helpful before we arrivef and had left a few welcome gifts for us - much appreciated. Eccleshall is a very interesting town and the town trail is worth doing. There are lots of easy walks to do from the cottage around the very pretty countryside.
