Can you have groceries delivered?
back to question list

Yes, you can pre-order your groceries via Tesco or Asda.com or a local farm shop and have them delivered directly to your cottage.

To order from Tesco: For those guests staying at Fron Fawr, you need to use the post-code SA37 0HS on the tesco.com website and choose ‘Fron Fawr’ from the list of addresses, making sure you state the name of your cottage in the ‘Delivery Instructions’. It is also best to give our phone number for queries (01239 698619) as mobile signal is poor.

Please, please ensure that you change the delivery address from your home address if you currently use Tesco.com. We have had two instances where guests have forgotten to do this and their shopping was being delivered to their home address whilst they were waiting for it in Wales!!

When booking, we will also send you details of local farm shops who will gladly deliver a hamper, groceries or freshly picked fruit and vegetables of your choice, directly to your cottage. We also have a local fishmonger who comes to the Clydey site every Wednesday morning at 10:30 am to sell his freshly caught wares – delicious!
