We have free Wifi so you can catch up with your emails – a useful service for holidaymakers.
The shop is run by an association whose aim is to serve residents of and visitors to the village of Thorncombe, in Dorset close to the borders with Somerset and Devon.
Most of the staff are local volunteers who will be glad to help you find what you need in the shop, or order goods in for you.
