Full description

Situated within the heart of semi-rural Warmingham Village, designated as Cheshire Villages ?area of outstanding natural beauty?, The Old Post Office is a beautiful property offering a lovely rustic charm.

Originally part of a ?shippen? or cowshed serving the nearby Warmingham Grange, the building was first converted into cottages around 1850 before being enlarged to provide the village with a Post Office and store. The current owners have thoughtfully enhanced aspects of the original building to create a unique home seeped in history and offering a warm yet elegant ambiance.

Whilst enjoying a good level of seclusion, The Old Post Office is also intrinsically connected with the ancient village of Warmingham and ideal for those attracted to enjoying the benefits afforded by living within a small community. Rejuvenated 19th century inn The Bear?s Paw, the Village Hall and historic St Leonards Church are hubs of the community where activities and events from Bell Ringing to Film Nights take place. A number of local walking trails also invite Villagers to truly take in the Cheshire countryside.
