Fred Holdsworth's Bookshop reviews
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...

The person working the tills was lovely and talkative, she made an effort to tell me about the books I have chosen. Very professional and a quaint store
A lovely quaint book shop. Well organized and very beautiful inside. It's a shame there didn't seem to be any second hand books as that's what I had intended to find. A nice bookshop nonetheless.
