Croft Castle's second-hand bookshop

Inside the second hand bookshop

Croft's second-hand bookshop will be open daily from Saturday 1 May. We've put some measures in place to help keep everyone safe. Read on to find out more.

The second-hand bookshop at Croft will reopen on Saturday 1 May and will then be open daily from 10am to 5pm. 

  • Please remember to sanitise your hands on entry and exit and wear a face mask while you're in the bookshop.
  • It is only a small space, so there is a limit of one household at a time.
  • Please handle the books as little as possible and pop your donation into the honesty box before leaving. 
  • If you do not have the correct change, you can pay by card at Visitor Reception.

Every penny spent in the bookshop goes towards vital conservation projects at Croft, including the revival and restoration of Fishpool Valley, a landscape remodelled in the Picturesque style.

Why not donate some of your pre-loved books and music for others to enjoy? We are now accepting good quality donations, which we quarantine for 72 hours. They can be left with our Visitor Reception team.
