The Old Post Office is a handsome period village house which has been sympathetically renovated in recent years retaining many important original features including shutters to windows, beamed ceilings and stripped pine cupboards. The property is situated on the Main Street in Harome facing south with an attractive well stocked garden to the side and rear. Adjacent to the garden there is vehicular access to the parking area on part of which there is lapsed planning consent for a detached one bedroom Holiday Cottage and domestic store/workshop or office.

Harome is one of the best loved of North Yorkshire’s villages, set at the foot of the Moors, close to Helmsley and bounded to the south and west by the rivers Riccal and Rye. It is home to the Star Inn, a Michelin starred restaurant with country hotel and superb shop/delicatessen, together with the recently acquired Pheasant Hotel again offering excellent food and accommodation. Nearby Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside and Malton provide extensive market town facilities and there are excellent state and private schools in easy reach.
