A shop packed with local and national produce – everything you need

We are passionate about supporting local businesses and you will find a wide range of Exmoor-sourced produce in our shop, alongside essential household goods and basic foods at modest prices. In support of our ethos of environmental sustainability, we are a water bottle refill site and we stock refillables, including milk in refillable glass bottles and household cleaning products. We plan to extend our range to include dry foods as soon as possible.
