Beautiful 17th century 2 bedroom thatched cottage in quiet village near to Stratford Upon Avon and Cotswolds. Wonderful peaceful location surrounded by woodland walks.


The Old Post Office is a most attractive and historic 17th century cottage, filled with character and centrally located in the exclusive picturesque village of Dorsington, Warwickshire. The location midway between Stratford Upon Avon and the north Cotswolds villages of Broadway and Chipping Campden would make this property ideal for downsizing or possibly as a second home or holiday let investment. There is also the possibility to extend, subject to planning permission and listed building consent. The house has been fully modernised in recent years but retains many original period features. There is off road parking for 2 vehicles, a lawned garden, and a useful storage room / workshop. Residents of this village also benefit from access to the tranquil and beautiful Dorsington Arboretum 2 minutes walk from the house, as well as other local woodland walks by kind permission of the Heart of England Forest.
