Crammed full of goodies

Experience a curation of local and artisan products

Whether you’re staying in Woolsery or passing via the Atlantic Highway, our shop is the perfect place to stock up on the region’s finest handcrafted produce.

As everyone knows, aside from the pub, the local store is the heart of any British village and Woolsery’s J. Andrew Shop & Post Office is no exception. It’s the place to get all the village news as well as fresh and local edibles and storecupboard staples.

In addition to stocking up on the latter, customers can browse an array of beautiful handcrafted products from across the South West. From foodstuffs to gifts, we’ve rounded up some items you shouldn’t miss out on.

Pick up a box of Tregothnan Tea. The leaves are grown on the banks of the River Fal in Cornwall and blended with those from Assam and Darjeeling. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a Devon cream tea.

Keep kids (and grown-ups) happy with an extravagantly creamy pot of multiple-award-winning Dartmoor Ice Cream. Founders (and friends) Sue and Carol set up the artisan ice cream company in 2019 and now churn out crowd-pleasing flavours such as chocolate orange, salted caramel and strawberries and cream.

The historic fishing village of Clovelly is just 10-minutes drive from Woolsery and home to The Clovelly Soap Co. Shop its range of handmade soaps and skincare which are made using natural products sourced from the local coast and countryside. The rose-geranium deodorant is a favourite!

Keep four-legged friends’ tails wagging by stocking up on Forthglade pet treats. Made in nearby Okehampton from 100 per cent natural ingredients, Forthglade is the go-to brand for pet owners who want to provide their pooches with high-quality nutrition.

Sweet tooths will find satisfaction in a bar of artisan chocolate from Chocolarder. Based in Falmouth, this is one of the country’s only small batch, bean-to-bar chocolatiers. The team uses ethically-sourced cocoa beans from family-run farms in Colombia, Sierra Leone, Madagascar, Peru and the Dominican Republic. Try the Wild Gorse Flower Milk Chocolate for a taste of our local hedgerows in spring.
