The Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village Shop celebrates ten years serving its community

 

Opened in 2004 by HRH Prince Charles and now an established award winning community project

New Suppliers

We have now taken on the award winnig Hobbs House Bakery as one of our suppliers. Watch out for great Foccachia, Scones and Fig and Walnut Bread amongst others.

 

Shop Stock

The shop tries to cater for locals and visitors alike. We stock all the basics such as baked beans, cornflakes, sugar, etc.

We try to keep our prices as competitive as possible and with the cost of motoring so high it can make economic sense to "shop local".

We also stock luxury groceries for special occasions including Duchy Originals, and delicatessen items including olives and sun dried tomatoes.

The shop has a wide range of fresh items including fruit and vegetables, meat, and dairy items, including local cheeses.

We also pride ourselves on having a wide range of local produce, with a very large percentage of the stock coming from within 50 miles of the shop. Several of our suppliers are from surrounding villages.
