Ordering Your Grocery Delivery
Unless you plan to eat out for every meal during your holiday, you will need some groceries – at least for the first day or so. Why not order what you need online and arrange for it to be delivered just after you’ve arrived? You can place an order online with any one of the following stores to be delivered at a time to suit you.
Local supermarkets which deliver to our cottages include:
Sainsbury’s deliver to most of our holiday cottages in Northumberland – Click here to place an order.
Asda delivers to most of our holiday cottages in Northumberland. Click here to place an order. Asda have a policy of using local suppliers where possible, so although they are one of the ‘giants’ of retailing, they do try to still support the local community to a degree.
Tesco deliver to most of the locations where are holiday cottages are located. Click here to place an order.
When ordering you will need the full address including postcode of your cottage.
You can contact us for that at any time but otherwise it will be provided to you when we send you directions and key code instructions a few weeks before your holiday.
The Village Store, located in the centre of the village, although small, sells a good range of all of the essentials like milk, groceries, wine, newspapers, etc. as well as a selection of local produce. The store opens early but closes around 5-5:30pm (varies according to the time of year).
This is an interesting, medium-sized market town, home to Alnwick Castle and Garden and the famous Barter Books, where there are many food shops including a large Sainsbury’s, a Morrison’s, Iceland and smaller, independent deli’s, butchers, fruiterers, etc. Alnwick is less than a mile from the A1.
A small Co-operative supermarket is located at the top of the high street and a Tesco Express at the bottom, towards the quayside, with smaller independent shops in between. The supermarkets are both open a little later on an evening; the Co-op is open until at least 8pm and Tesco is open from 7am to 11pm 7 days a week. Amble also hosts an interesting Local Sunday Market on the fish quay every Sunday morning, which is worth visiting.
Further afield, around 12 miles south of Alnwick, just off the A1 is the lovely, large market town of Morpeth, where a wide range of shops can be found of all kinds, including Morrisons and Marks and Spencer.
North of Bamburgh at Berwick, there is a really wide selection of supermarkets, including a Marks and Spencer food, ASDA, Morrisons, Tesco, ALDI and LIDL.
