The large, two storey outbuilding, previously used as stables and hay store, presents a rare development opportunity (subject to the necessary planning consents) to be used as ancillary accommodation, studio or offices. The double frontage and Boston ivy clad exterior add to the unique charm of The Old Post House, alongside the claim that one of the first floor bedrooms is where Nicholas Monsarrat wrote 'The Cruel Sea', a well renowned novel penned in the late 1940's
