The second-hand bookshop at Cotehele

The bookshop at Cotehele

Find hundreds of good quality donated books in our volunteer run second-hand bookshop. Every time you buy a book from the bookshop you help care for Cotehele.


Donating books

We are so thankful for everyone's donations towards the bookshop. You can drop off donations at Visitor Reception or within the bookshop itself. If you are donating a large amount of books, we ask that you either call or drop us an email beforehand just to check we have enough space to store your goods. 

Our bookshop wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers

Without the help of our small team of dedicated volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to keep the bookshop open. They work hard sorting through all the books given by generous visitors to ensure the shelves are continually stocked.

Last year with your support, either through donating books or purchasing them, more than £8,000 was raised. All funds contribute to vital conservation work at Cotehele, ensuring that Cotehele will be looked after for everyone, for ever.

Thank you

We couldn't do it without you

The money raised from our bookshop goes directly into funding the vital conservation work happening here at Cotehele. To everyone who has donated a book or bought one – thank you.
