Such a shame that the owner of this terrific bookshop has passed away - it's a delight in every way. And great value too. Nothing nicer than rooting through the piles of books scattered about the place, never knowing what you might find.

Charming and unassuming external appearance hides a treasure trove of books for the avid collector. Because it is a little off the beaten track, it still holds undiscovered treasures at reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit no matter what your reading or collecting interests may...More

I cannot recommend this bookshop highly enough. It is small but absolutely packed full of the most wonderful books. Although I live nearby and go fairly frequently, I always see something new and irresistible whenever I go. It shares the premises with a framers, and...More
