About this seller

Ours is a cozy and welcoming shop. Warm and comfortable and friendly. This is a shop that Jane Austen, Dickens, or even Darwin would have enjoyed. Follow us on our bookshop Diary. We are twenty-five years old this year. We can be found in central Lyme Regis, in the Town Square, just opposite the Town Clock. There is ample WDDC parking adjacent at 2.00 for one hour. Free: 6.00 pm to 8.00 am and all Day Sunday. We first opened our doors in August 1997 having moved from South Kensington. We now have ten rooms of books on four floors, a good range of Beryl Cook Cards & Prints, artwork by Hundertwasser, Erte, and local artist Brian Matravers. Also Cat Art by Ollie Lett and a good stock from the Belmont Library of John Fowles. We also have a very good stock of quality paperback literature, a downstairs reading room with comfortable armchairs, a floor of books mostly 1.50 or less, a second bookroom on the ground floor (formerly Lighthouse Books) and, if desired, some overnight accommodation for book lovers. Take a look at us on, or contact us at, because we offer free book valuations, book repairs, and an on-the-spot book search service (or by telephone or email, should you be unable to get to us), all free.
