The village of Midford is situated approximately 4 miles south of Bath and consists of predominantly period cottages and larger family homes under the backdrop of the Midford viaduct. This active village has a well regarded pub, The Hope and Anchor, renowned for its excellent dining, plus access to the Two Tunnels cycle path that follows a disused railway track, creating an almost level and direct route of approximately 2½ miles between the Midford valley and Bath city centre. Amenities including popular pubs are available at the neighbouring villages of Hinton Charterhouse, Limpley Stoke and Freshford and there is an award-winning gastro pub at Combe Hay. Bath is renowned for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture and provides excellent cultural and leisure amenities including many fine restaurants and specialist shops, museums, art galleries and theatres as well as an excellent range of schools in both the state and private sectors along with 2 universities. Bath Spa station offers high speed links to London Paddington (journey time approx 90 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (approx 15 mins). Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 13 miles north.
The Old Post Office is an exquisite period stone built cottage with far reaching views and a pretty landscaped garden. The accommodation has many period features including feature fireplaces and some exposed beams. The pretty sitting room has part-panelled walls and a sash window. The kitchen opens into the attractive dining room with a feature fireplace. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. Planning permission (12/03819/FUL) has previously been granted for a single storey extension to the rear, however this has now lapsed. Subject to the necessary procedure, this could perhaps be reinstated.
There is a large terrace area immediately accessible from the dining room, which is ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. Leading from the terrace, which includes a log store, is an attractive landscaped garden with a level lawn and a variety of mature shrubs, plants and flowers along with a vegetable plot and a shed. Next door but one to the left of the property there are twin garages, both owned by The Old Post Office.
