Old Sorting Office

Built in 1892, on the site of an ancient public house The Grapevine, 27 North Street was home to Winchcombe's Post Office for over 120 years. When the Post Office closed in 2016, it was purchased by the current owner who has totally renovated the property. Old Sorting Office is a ground floor cottage, situated in the former Post Office sorting office, behind the former Post Office retail premises, which now accommodates a gemstone and jewellery design studio. The front door of Old Sorting Office opens onto a landscaped courtyard garden, shared with Postmasters Lodging. The Old Sorting Office also has its own private courtyard garden accessed from the living area. The interior boasts a ground floor open-plan living area, where you will be welcomed by a lounge with cream sofas, a beautiful kitchen and dining area with cream-coloured units, a charming dining table, and wood-effect flooring. From morning through to evening, this is a lovely place to unwind, a secluded hideway, right in the heart of Winchcombe. The large super king-size bedroom boasting zip and link beds to offer maximum flexibility, has been lovingly decorated with stylish bedding, bedside tables, and leads out to the bathroom which has a bath and shower above. The bath has a sit and lift seat and shower door to enable people with less mobility to make full use of the facilities. Winchcombe has Walkers are Welcome status and many lovely footpaths with interesting things to see en-route. You can visit a remote Roman villa, Belas Knap Long Barrow, a Neolithic burial site, as well as climb to the top of the Cotswold scarp and see fantastic views. Winchcombe hosts an annual walking festival in May which offers a variety of walks with local guides, orienteering and evening events. Cotswold stone cottages enhanced by black and white half-timbered buildings, narrow side streets and charming houses make up the centre of this town. A unique retreat to bring you a memorable stay.
