Settle down with a good book

Browse our second hand book shop

Since it first opened, our second-hand book shop has grown from a few books on a single table to a proper venue. Why not support us by picking up a book or two on your next visit?

Located next to our reception area and gift shop, the shelves and tables of our second hand bookshop display a huge selection of books from many genres and areas of interest.

The bookshop is stocked entirely with donated books and run by volunteers, the money raised from book sales helps fund conservation work at Mount Stewart so future generations can enjoy the house and gardens.

Making a Donation

We are now able to receive second hand book donations. If you would like to donate your pre-loved books, we ask that you bring your donations (no more than two large bags per person) to our visitor reception where a Welcome Assistant will be able to receive your donation and answer any queries. If you have a large donation please email us at to discuss.
