Second-hand bookshop

The second-hand bookshop is open and has now moved to the fresh and airy building alonside the toilet block. Hand sanitiser is available on the way in, face coverings are not compulsory, but we recommend that you wear one in enclosed and crowded spaces.

Even if we do say so ourselves, the bookshop is looking very smart. Pop in and have a look and browse through a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction bargains. All proceeds from the bookshop go directly towards the care and conservation of Arlington and the wider estate.

The Vine Cafe

Please check on the day as to whether it is open

The seasonal Vine Cafe tucked behind the house offers a great alternative for quick pick-up and go snacks, drinks and ice-cream. With beautiful seating under the sprawling vines of the pergola, this dog-friendly cafe is a great place to sit and relax.
