Information for your stay at North Hill

When you arrive at North Hill you will want to know in advance what is provided in the Cottage and what is not. This way you won't bring unnecessary items or forget to bring something you do need.

The nearest supermarkets are 4-5 miles away so the last thing you will want to do is go shopping just having arrived after a long journey, so we suggest you bring the basics and then top up during your stay as necessary. Tesco and Sainsbury will both deliver to North Hill so please feel free to order for a delivery after your arrival.

You may not want to cook on your first evening and we can recommend the food at the Muddiford Inn (2 miles away). It may be worth booking a table on 01271 850243
