A VERY SUBSTANTIAL EDWARDIAN VILLAGE HOME, SITUATED IN THE CENTRE OF BURNSALL VILLAGE, WITH CHARACTERFUL EXCELLENT SIZED FOUR BEDROOMED ACCOMMODATION AND A SECLUDED REAR SOUTH-FACING GARDEN WITH VIEWS UP TO BURNSALL FELL. As its name suggests, The Old Post Office was constructed as the village store in 1901 and was operated as such until around the turn of the 21st Century when it was converted into a spacious and comfortable house by the present vendor who also constructed a wonderful Sun Room/Dining Area to the rear of the property. Situated in the heart of the village, it has been a much-loved home for nearly 20 years, and may equally suit its next owner as a permanent or second dwelling.

Unlike many Dales villages, Burnsall has a high level of owner/occupation and this, combined with its strong community spirit, and two renowned hostelries, makes it an popular place of choice to live. It is surrounded by spectacular National Park scenery, including the magnificent Burnsall Fell which is the focal point of the annual Burnsall Feast & Sports. The River Wharfe runs through under the famous Burnsall Bridge, and within the village there is a strongly respected Primary School, Children's Nursery and recently upgraded Village Hall which hosts a wide range of events including the annual pantomime. Grassington is 3.5 miles away, as is Threshfield where there is a Secondary School, although Burnsall is also in the catchment area for the Skipton Grammar Schools, circa 13 miles to the South.
