Kemps General Store

Due to the current public health situation with regards to COVID-19 we recommend that you check with your travel and accommodation providers, and Public Health England before travelling. For the latest visitor information on COVID-19 please visit


Today the shop stands as a testament to tradition and the old ways of doing things, a small oasis which reflects a slower, calmer way of life.

However alongside heritage, there is also certainly room for the new. Whilst the service may be exactly the same as all those years ago, the products are decidedly much more exciting!

Long before opening the doors, Liz hunted up and down the UK for the best of British - looking for exciting new brands and beautiful contemporary designs.

At Kemps, we hope you will find the things you most certainly want and may even need, such as an interesting book, lovely art, great cards, quirky things or or a selection of beautiful tableware.

We also hope that you might uncover something more unusual... one of those little treasures which pops out at you on a shelf when you least expect it.

Opening details

Open Monday - Saturday, 09:30 - 16:30 and the occasional Sundays.
