You have chosen to live amongst us in this quiet corner of Cornwall, well that is until the neighbours crank up the music. Best thing to do in this instance is pop round with a bag of sugar and introduce yourself, don’t mind the dogs they’re all friendly here. IF YOU survive that, please take a look at our parish newsletter, you can pick up WIFI at Callington Library or at the local pubs. Sorry no pubs in this parish.

The South Hill Connection to give it the correct name, has details of local events, clubs and groups that meet at the hall and the church and general goings on. Plus lists our advertisers of local businesses and tradesmen that can offer free advice and refer others.  We also have a South Hill Facebook page and keep an eye open for posters on the notice boards dotted around the parish.

South Hill is centrally located between the shopping towns of Liskeard, Launceston, Saltash and Tavistock and the closest town of Callington where you can find all your essential shopping needs.
