We are based in the heart of rural Somerset, England, just a stone’s throw from the cities of Bristol, Bath and Wells.If you are looking to buy in bulk and contact us before your visit,we can arrange for one of our staff to help you pick from our warehouse stacks. These are not open to the general public but available to browse if we are given notice.
We also have a lovely bookshop open to the public seven days a week. Our shelves are crammed full of beautiful and bargain books - and all just £1 from the shop floor. With such a vast array of subjects and sections it’s up to you to delve in and treasure hunt… hopefully you'll resurface after a few hours! And once you have, you can get lunch and other tasty treats from our delicious on-site vegetarian cafe, The Full Stop Cafe. It's complete with cosy sofas and a log burner to keep you toasty in the winter- making it the perfect place to sit back, relax, enjoy a coffee and some food and have a good read.
And for those looking for that little extra special something, our Darwin Rare Books Room opened in June 2017 could be the perfect place for you. It's a collection of our most rare and beautiful books and well worth losing yourself for a few hours in.
With great events such as adults/kids workshops, Fayres, quizzes and poetry nights throughout the year, there's always something to do and see here. So what are you waiting for? Come along for a day out and pay us a visit! Well behaved adults, children and dogs are all very welcome!
