This is a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a much loved and well used post office and general store, which is located in the popular and much sought after area of Great Brington, Northamptonshire.

Great Brington is a village in the Daventry district of the county of Northamptonshire. In 1508, John Spencer from Wormleighton in Warwickshire purchased the estate of Althorp outside Great Brington with its moated house and several hundred acres of farmland. He had grazed sheep here from the 1480s. In 1508, impressed by the quality of the land, he eventually bought it and rebuilt the house. In 1511 he made further purchases to acquire much of the surrounding countryside, including the villages of Little Brington and Great Brington as well their parish church of St Mary the Virgin, from Thomas Grey, 2nd Marquees of Dorset.

Just outside the village is Althorp, the home of the Spencer family and Diana, Princess of Wales. Several members of the Spencer family are buried at Great Brington church, including Diana's father the 8th Earl Spencer, who died in 1992. The death of Diana had quite an effect on the village - the village pub was renamed from "The Fox and Hounds" to the "Althorp Coaching Inn" and the previously sleepy post office gained currency exchange facilities following the large increase in tourism to the area.

Great Brington Post Office and Stores occupies a prime trading position within the centre of the village, fronting the main road within a well populated and highly sought after residential area. There is an excellent primary school in the vicinity and ample parking, ensuring the area is a hive of activity attracting high levels of regular, local and passing trade throughout the day.

Having been in present ownership since 2009 and trading within the village for over 100 years, this well known and relied upon business has forged strong
relationships with the local community and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.


Summary. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a first class business, with a beautiful family accommodation positioned in a desirable residential area. Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, a viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
