A mere few steps from the Bunkhouse is a very well stocked coop, selling groceries, cleaning products, freshly baked bread, local free range eggs etc. Next door is a very good butcher and we also have a gift shop, art gallery with cafe and shop, a post office and shop, a traditional sweet shop, 2 pubs serving food (though not every day, it is advisable to book in advance), an Indian restaurant and take away and even a beautician. Plenty to browse and all you require, we hope! Hexham with much larger facilities (Tesco, Waitrose, green grocers, garage etc) is 12 miles away, a 15 minute drive.
