Pre-loved books

Second-hand books

The stables once housed at least ten horses, but is now home to a wide selection of pre-loved books. Here you will find everything from gardening books, bestselling paperback fiction to classic novels.

The funds raised from the sale of second-hand books go towards looking Montacute House and helping carry out vital conservation work.

We always need donations, so if you have any books that you would like to rehome, they would be gratefully received. We'd also welcome jigsaw puzzles if you have some in good condition that you've completed and no longer need. All pieces need to be accounted for so it's not too difficult for the next owner.

If you have any questions about donations then please so email Donations can usual left with the team in visitor reception.

Face coverings

Wearing a face covering is a personal choice, although they are recommended in crowded and enclosed places. Thank you for supporting us to make this a safe experience for everyone.
