Welcome to Postlip
We are a small cohousing community of eight homes within a Cotswold manor.
Please take a look around - there are so many ways to learn about what we're up to with a few of them here on the home page.
'O' is for October Open Days!
Come and join us for the 2nd of our 2 open days at Postlip to find out more about Cohousing and to see if living here would work for you.
We'll start with a coffee at 10 o'clock for a meet and greet and then let the day, the weather and our infamous jobs list take us where they will!
Normally it will involve a bit of gardening, a bit of moving things, animal husbandry, minor buildings work, apple picking- that kind of thing.
Basically, something for everyone, we hope! And, as always, a side portion of good cheer.
We're asking for £5 per person to contribute to lunches and refreshments.
Please bring wellies, gloves and weather-wise wear.
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.

November's gig tees up a first for Postlip for the critically acclaimed acoustic/synthy/folk/pop quintette.
Building on 2018’s debut album ‘heterogaster’, the band now have new acoustic album ‘Epicadus’ to share, and hearing it in Postlip's intimate front room, will surely serve up a pile of Mesadorm at their most majestic.
Aside from the emotional heft of Mesadorm's music, the pedigree of its members is also not to be underestimated. Between them, Mesadorm's members have played with Paloma Faith, Goldfrapp, Rae Morris, Frank Turner, The Unthanks, The Magnetic North, toured with London Grammar and fronted major-label signing Vaults as well as singing on John Lewis' 2016 Christmas Ad.
We also welcome back the heart-melting string-stretching Mandel for a support slot not to be missed; and knowing them, they'll probably gate crash the Mesadorm set for a couple of once-in-a-lifetime's too!

Just as the summer was turning into autumn we hosted the rather one-offy Mr. 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.
Such an incredible vibe created by the end and with a delicious entré of Mr. Ed Dowie to kick us off, we are all blown away by the evening.
Huge luck with the 'Old Wow' tour, Sam and Friends, and can't wait to hear the next Ed Dowie release (which we're delighted has been 'fully kickstarted'.
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.
