Description

The Old Post Office sits in the middle of the village of Nether Poppleton which boasts a reference in the Doomsday Book. It has been tastefully renovated to a good standard offering accommodation to large groups of family or friends. The large open plan kitchen/dining/living room boasts two sets of French doors leading out onto an enclosed decked and garden area. The kitchen is modern and has everything you will need to cook delicious meals and there are a few little extras too including an inbuilt coffee machine. A further smaller sitting room offers a more peaceful space to relax and unwind away from the hustle of the kitchen area. The Old Post Office offers a mixture of twin and double accommodation set over two floors with one room having a large walk-in dressing room complete with Hollywood style mirror and there are large walk-in showers and a deep freestanding bath to add to the comfort. With views across open countryside from the rear of this property a peaceful night’s sleep is guaranteed.
Nether Poppleton offers a range of amenities from the village pub directly opposite to shops and a village hall. The River Ouse runs behind the property and offers wonderful riverside walks with benches nestled into the river side offering the opportunity to sit and watch the wildlife or just take a moment to take in the views. York city centre is nearby and is easily accessed by the Park and Ride 1½ miles away making this the perfect holiday cottage location. York is one of the very best places to visit in the UK with over 2000 years of history to explore from the Vikings to the Romans, and from the Gothic architecture of York Minster to the winding medieval streets of the Shambles and Whip Ma Whop Ma Gate! You will never go hungry in this city as there are hundreds of cafés, restaurants and bars to choose from and shops galore for those visiting with retail therapy in mind. The Victorian town of Harrogate is only a 30 minute drive from The Old Post Office and a visit to the beautifully restored Victorian Turkish Baths, where the exotic Moorish architecture and Italian mosaics of the traditional steam room, plunge pool and hot room chambers are, add an extra touch of luxury to your holiday time.
