Old Post Office Cottage
There are no tell tale signs that Old Post Office Cottage was ever a Post Office, other than it’s name, having been carefully renovated and rearranged into spacious and comfortable accommodation. This extended semi-detached cottage is just yards from the village green, access to the South West Coastal path and a short walk to a number of coves and beaches along this beautiful part of the coastline. East Prawle, on the southern tip of the South Hams peninsular is a good example of a quintessential Devonshire village. With its duck pond, farms, pastel coloured cottages and Pig’s Nose local, the most southerly pub in Devon, once the haunt of smugglers dating back 500 years. For those looking for a quiet and picturesque location near the coast, this is an ideal cottage.
