A sympathetically restored Post Office with plenty of period charm and beautifully original rustic features.

This was meant to be the weekend of my son's wedding celebration which will now take place next year. So glad that we held on to it so that we could have four nights away from home. Charlie has been so helpful in moving reservations for us and has responded promptly to any email request. Upon arriving, the welcome basket was very much appreciated......as was the big double fridge/freezer as we had our shopping delivered the next morning. The beds were very comfortable....and we quite liked the challenge of trying to get down the stairs without making the floorboards creak! Not sure how the bedroom configuration of three rooms, two of which are connected, sharing one bathroom would work if you were not a close family. But the annex, again with comfortable furnishings, has its own en suite. The walled garden was delightful and offered lots of seating options, plus a BBQ. We were especially impressed with the extra off road park facility and the enclosed garden which meant that our one year old dog could roam around safely. Added bonus was the park, through the gate for extra walks. We have got next year booked, but for The Gildhall so it will be interesting to see how they compare.



Lovely Birthday Break

Lovely cottage and surroundings. Beds really comfortable. Lovely annex ideal for less mobile. Ideal place for dogs as plenty of grounds to have nice walk. Location is not within walking distance of places to see. An ideal place to chill out with family. 2nd visit for us, this time to celebrate my 50th with my family. Need to share bathroom, but annex has own ensuite. Lovely welcome hamper. We booked food delivery to save all the fuss! Beautiful fireplace and cottage



A great place to stay

We were so happy to have booked the Old Post Office early this year. The change in lockdown meant we were able to finally get together with our two daughters and their partners after such a challenging time last year. It was also great that Dexter, the dog, was also welcome.

The layout of the accommodation was great, with amazing original features and quirky parts, although you need to remember to duck when you come out of the bathroom (something I kept forgetting).

Large fridge freezer was a great help as we were able to bring frozen dishes which made catering easier.

Despite it being late May the weather was still cold and it was lovely to have a fire one night whilst we all watched Eurovision!

Highly recommended as the property and location are ideal for exploring the area.




Brilliant location to explore Constable Country. A lovely house in a beautiful location.

The Old Post Office was a perfect choice for our group of grandparents, children and grandchildren. We grandparents chose the self-contained annex in the garden, leaving the kids and the grandchildren the run of the house. A well appointed kitchen and large dining room was great for communal cooking, eating together and for late night games of Risk, Monopoly and Cards of Humanity. Its a very old house with loads of character and we all had a thoroughly great time.
The extensive gardens on the property were great for exploring with the grandchildren and its perfectly located for exploring Flatford Mill and the Dedham Vale area generally. Its only a mile from the A12, which is a very busy road, but that is just far enough away to not hear it at all.
This is a great area to explore on two wheels and there are lots of very quiet roads around Dedham to explore and across to Mistley, Manningtree and Lawford.
We shall definitely be returning soon.




Charming, cosy, comfortable cottage in Constable Country

A truly idyllic cottage in stunning grounds. Wonderful walking from the door so perfect for us and the dogs. Clear and helpful communication allowed us make the most of our week. The surrounding area is just stunning. Left us rested and refreshed. Can’t wait to return!
