The Postmaster's Studio Apartment
Just off the Main Street in the beautiful riverside township of Derby the Postmaster's Studio Apartment offers all the modern conveniences of a city apartment with the cosy style and comfort of a mountain village.
Perfectly located at the head of the world renowned Blue Derby MTB Trails it is literally less than 100 metres from the privacy of your Apartment to the exhilarating action of Derby's famous bike trails, its picturesque river charm and wonderful mountain walks.
Derby's historic Postmaster's Lodge has been recently renovated with the original building still operating as the local Post Office and convenience Store. The main Lodge provides accommodation for families and groups of up to nine people while the ground floor Postmaster's Studio Apartment is designed for couples or up to four guests.
