A friend and I, plus our two dogs, stayed three nights at the Old Post Office. Helen and Richard are the most genuinely welcoming hosts I think we have ever encountered - and we've encountered a few! Nothing was too much trouble for them and, by the time we left, we felt as if we were saying goodbye to old friends. The rooms and the lounge area are beautifully decorated, pristine and exceptionally comfortable and the overall feeling of the place is 'home from home'. Attention is paid to every detail, down to the dog biscuits left in our room for our four-legged companions. The breakfasts are par excellence and not just the bog standard menu - some very innovative additions have been well thought out by Helen and everything is beautifully presented. The same can be said for the evening meal which we really enjoyed. We rarely return to a place, but I think we'll be making an exception for The Old Post Office - as soon as possible!
