Shopping in Tideswell

We’re very proud of our shops here in Tideswell.  We are still a focal point for many people’s weekly shop.

In Tideswell we have everything you need on a day-to-day basis.  If you’re staying in a holiday cottage, there really is no need to bring anything with you beforehand.  What is more you can buy before you arrive and have it delivered to your holiday cottage door using Tideswell’s new Shop in Tideswell service – supporting our village shops rather than lining Tesco’s or Asda’s pockets!
