Description

Facing common land and grazing sheep, this lovely cottage has a cosy open fire making it perfect for any time of year.

Once serving the hamlet of Coombe Green, The Old Post Office enjoys a fabulous position set amongst common land, where the sheep graze freely in the rural setting between Malvern and Ledbury in Worcestershire. This is an ideal, detached cottage for those wanting to explore the area on foot. There are many super walks on offer over the surrounding common land and across Castlemorton Common. There are also walks directly to Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Old Post Office has been renovated to make delightful and comfortable accommodation, but has still kept some of its original charm. With an open fire to cosy in front of after a day on the hills, and a fantastic large garden which covers a 1/3 of an acre, this is the perfect place for family and friends to stay all year round.
The village of Welland, which is well served with a pub, post office, village shop and church, is just over 2 miles away. Larger and more extensive facilities can be found in the spa town of Malvern, 9¼ miles away, where there are pubs, restaurants, shops and a theatre which is famous for its festivals. The market town of Ledbury, is known for its poetry and culture, and access to the black and white trail of the nearby villages. The riverside town of Upton-upon-Severn has many festivals during the year including jazz, folk and blues festivals, and boasts attractive shops and delightful inns, and is just over 6 miles away. The Three Counties Showground which hosts many shows including the RHS Spring and Autumn shows and the Royal Three Counties show is 5 miles away. A little further afield are the cathedral cities of Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    This property was described as being set in an area of "Common Land", and indicated a peaceful and tranquil country setting. In fact - 8 feet from the wall of the house was a B road that that could only be described as a rat run at certain times of the day - from around 6.00 am to 8.00 am and again in the evening - cars, lorries and other vehicles thundering past the property. Could not avoid the noise or the impact of the headlights on the walls of the bedrooms. The interior photos on the website make the property look light and spacious - look carefully - every ceiling light and table light is on to enhance the lighting. In fact - the property is 300 years old and has small windows appropriate to that era. And upstairs - you need to walk with a stoop if you are 6Ft tall or over. However - superb location for exploring and walking the Malvern Hills which are nothing short of spetacular.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review of the property but I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay as much as other visitors have. For the benefit of future visitors, please look at the external photos on this website where it is quite clear that the window openings are all the originals and of a size to be expected in an old rural house. Please note that we have replaced every window with modern double-glazing – at times when there is more traffic on the road, the noise is therefore kept to a minimum. The curtains are of good quality fabric and properly lined, to keep out as much light as possible. Like many old buildings, the bedrooms have low ceilings, but my three siblings, all over 6 feet tall, have never found this a problem! Many visitors find this ‘quirky’. The downstairs bedroom has a higher ceiling and is further away from the road, so might have suited these visitors better. Regarding the road, image 19 clearly shows the distance from the house and that no bedroom windows give onto the road. A quick look at a map will show that the road itself connects Malvern to other places on the way to Gloucester, so some local traffic might be expected at the start and finish of the working day. During the sheep season, it is quiet enough to be full of sheep and lambs on frequent occasions and is a very easy road to cross to the common land immediately opposite. The website’s description is accurate: opposite the house is common land, leading directly to the Malvern Hills, with no other road to cross. The garden covers approximately 1/3 acre and beyond this is a large paddock. The few neighbouring properties all stand in their own land. I hope that future visitors will find this a restful but not too isolated place to spend a few days away.

    The garden on a warm, sunny day, with its plantings, feature shrubs, layout and size, once renovation has been completed, will be a particular feature. Being able to get and park a car (or more) privately off road is also a feature. Linking through conveniently are the fully equipped kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting room.

    We had a brilliant time at the cottage the whole extended family which included 4 small children and a dog absolutely loved it. The owners have made great efforts to ensure our comfort there is good attention to details about child and pet safety. All mod cons available. Would definitely go again

    A lovely cottage well equipped, clean and not too far from local pubs and amenities. Being able to accommodate our two dogs was particularly helpful and they loved the large enclosed garden. We would definitely recommend this property.

    Amazing walks in the Malverns, including one directly outside the house. Had an enjoyable time relaxing by the fire in the evenings. It was nice that most things in the house were clean and new. There are also plenty of local pubs. Overall we had an enjoyable and memorable time.
