The Bookshop in the Hills


Nestling between the Brecon Beacons and the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains and amidst spectacular scenery, you can find one of the best secondhand bookstores in the principality.

Our new telephone code and number is 01550 728 276






26,000 secondhand volumes covering all subjects - archaeology, architecture, art, biography, botany, ceramics, cookery, countryside, crafts, fiction, fishing, gardening, history, literature, nature, nautical, ornithology, philosophy, poetry, polar, railways, science, sport, theology, transport, travel, topography.  


On this website you can visit our virtual bookshop, browse, search and buy online. Use the Quick Search box to the left to bring up subject categories in our stock - try any of those listed above or any others you can think of. Make it as broad or narrow a selection as you choose. For example 'Nautical' might bring up 450 titles while 'Navy' would reduce it to 120. 'History' will return more than 4,000 while 'medieval' or 'Reformation' would further refine the search. 'Botany' or 'Gardening' would return a large number of books, 'orchids' or 'roses', less so.
