  • One of my favourite places in all the world... A second hand bookshop to get lost in! The cafe is vegetarian, the food is awesome ( even though I am a confirmed omnivore) and the shelves are floor to sealing over three storeys... Three storeys... with many stories... Awesome specialist sections and great staff. And all this in the middle of a beautiful village that is itself a UN world heritage site. If you haven't been go, and if you have I'll not need to suggest you return because any book lover will feel much as I do!
  • This could be the best book shop you ever visit. There's a cafe that sells vegetarian and vegan food upstairs which also has some gluten-free options. Have a look at some books while you're enjoying a cuppa. Cracking!
  • This is a really cool bookshop! I wish we'd had longer to spend perusing the shelves as there are non-fiction books on almost any subject you could think of, as well as modern and classic fiction, children's books, both brand new and second-hand at very reasonable prices. There's is also a whole room of music books, sheet music, CDs and vinyls. Lots of nooks and crannies, almost every corner filled with floor to ceiling shelves! There is a lovely cafe on the top floor of the building. It was also named as number 6 on the Guardian Online's 'World's 10 Best Bookshops'!
  • It's honestly like stepping into the book shop in a fairy tales. Rambling over three floors and stuffed to the brim with beautiful and interesting books on a wide variety of subjects it's also well cared for and has a really good little vegetarian cafe for when you need to pause from browsing. Definitely one for repeat visits.
  • A bit tucked out of the way, but what a find! Books fill every corner, nook and crevice. Mixture of new and second hand books on offer. Nice cafe too where you can while away time with your purchases.
