Welcome to Postlip
We are a small cohousing community of eight homes within a Cotswold manor.
Over the past 50 years, families have come and gone, but the idea of living, working the land and being part of an active community remains the same.
We do lots of things together. We garden organically, within three acres of kitchen garden and 15 acres of land. We tend and maintain our Grade I listed home, tithe barn and estate. We care for livestock - sheep, pigs, chickens... and dream of goats, ducks and maybe alpacas one day! We host events - including the Cotswold Beer Festival - and share wonderful experiences and this amazing place with guests.
Sometimes we just stop, relax and gather as a community. When together we enjoy company and the beauty of this corner of the Cotswolds. We also value the respect this community places on the need for a private life.
We are always interested in meeting potential new members. Currently we have a split level two bedroom unit for sale. If you are interested in finding out about Unit 7 please look at the Unit for sale page.
Our community has eight homes (called 'units'). They are unusual and vary in size - all of them are within the manor house.
We would love to hear from energetic, enthusiastic, sociable people who might be interested in units coming on the market or getting to know us for the future.

Sam Lee with support from Ed Dowie
Sat Sept 14th 2019
We are thrilled and privileged to have Sam Lee, Mercury prize nominated folk singer, song collector, promoter, broadcaster and naturalist, joining us for an intimate gig in our hall to launch his new album, Old Wow.
‘Old Wow’ will be released in late 2019 and is a collection of songs written from, interpreted, adapted and augmented out of Sam’s unique collection of material he has sourced as an intrepid song collector of British vernacular song.
Sam will be supported by the "bold and starry-eyed visionary” (The Quietus) Ed Dowie. Ed released his extraordinary experimental debut album, The Uncle Sold in January 2017. His music has regularly appeared on BBC6 Music and BBC Radio 3's Late Junction, which included The Uncle Sold in their Top 12 albums of 2017.
A Big Thanks!

...for the spectacular performance on 1st June. Mind-blowing musical virtuosity followed by elderflower cocktails on the walnut lawn-- a summer's evening to be remembered.
