Our Location


Set within a 3 acre garden and amid forest in the rolling foothills of the Cambrian Mountains at an elevation of 860 feet our bookshop is one of the most remote in the United Kingdom.

Housed in converted 17th century stone barns at our farmstead is a stock of 24,000 general secondhand and antiquarian books covering a wide range of subjects.

SEARCHING OUR STOCK ONLINE


On the left hand side tool bar you can create a list of selected theological books by clicking on the relevant catalogue. Similarly you will see on the right hand tool bar a growing list of other subject areas. You can search our stock by using the author or title box or create your own catalogue by using the keyword box. 

OUR BUSINESS HOURS - Callers Welcome

We are usually open for business Monday-Saturday between 10.00am and 5.00pm when someone will be able to take your telephone call or answer email enquiries & we aim to open to the public on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 10 am and 5pm. It is likely that we are also available on Wednesday and Saturday, although if you are travelling some distance please telephone first. During colder weather dress in warm clothes - the barns can take some time to warm up. Click here for travel directions.

"A journey into the middle of nowhere was rewarded by a friendly greeting, hot coffee and lots of chatter. This really is an oasis in the wilderness and the tens of thousands of titles on offer took some hours to browse. The theological stock took the whole of one massive converted barn. Other subjects, with a large gardening section, were a joy to behold. Only a fraction of the books are on the internet at the moment. There are many scarce titles on offer, particularly on field sports and rural pursuits." - Chris Harte (TheBookGuide)
