  • Lovely selection of books at a reasonable price. Staff were accommodating but pleasantries were minimal. Would recommend if wanting to support local shops.

  • Great bookshop! Always a must visit for me when in Ambleside. A real treasure trove. As well as books the owner stocks a lovely set of cards featuring Lake District photos taken by his daughter...
