To save you a long trip to the supermarket which is often very busy at peak times, you can arrange a delivery from Tesco to the cottage. You can order your shopping online prior to your visit and and then it will be delivered at the time of your choice. If you don't have your own account with Tesco, we have one set up for the cottage so get in touch and we can give you the account details.
