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)
