This semi-detached cottage in Santon Bridge sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

The Old Post Office is a semi-detached cottage near the village campsite in the quiet hamlet of Santon Bridge. The cottage has a first floor double room and a single room with a slightly smaller-than-average bed and an additional single trundle bed on the second floor mezzanine level. There is a shower room on the first floor and downstairs, the kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner. Outside is off road parking for one car, and a shared front garden with furniture and wonderful mountain views. The Old Post Office makes a romantic retreat for couples seeking to enjoy the mountains, walking, coastline, castle and villages of the area.


This cottage is located in a very good area for the mountains and the lakes. The pub food in the area is excellent. The most impressive part of the holiday was leaving the bedroom window open at night and listening to the babbling river. This is a very nice place and I would really recommend staying here.
Mr Osborn
