Food and drink
Unless you're arriving when the village post office store is open, you'll need to bring your own food supplies. The store stocks fresh and packaged food and drinks and is usually open until 4pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and also on Saturday morning. Our village pub, the George & Dragon, is scheduled to reopen in 2024 following a major makeover. In the meantime, Alan our local taxi operator may be around to whisk you off to one of the several pubs and restaurants in the metropolis of Alston, four miles away: phone 01434-381644, evenings & weekends 01434-381761, mobile: 07957 901562.

*Please note: You should normally receive our booking confirmation email within 24 hours of booking. Where you have also paid the shower charge, our email will contain the key code for access to the showers. If you book on or very close to the day of intended arrival, there may be occasions when you do not receive the key code in time. In such event, please tell our caretaker Brian. He is very helpful and lives directly opposite the hall at Garrigill House.
