Stiffkey Stores


A little jewel in the Village of Stiffkey. Stiffkey stores offers it all.. Keeping the traditional Village Shop and Post office for all your day to day needs it also offers a barn full of unique homewares and gifts and an abundance of books, traditional children’s toys, stationary, greetings cards, plants and flowers.
