Second hand bookshop

Books on sale in bookshop

We have an extensive selection of second hand books for sale from all genres. Pick up a bargain and settle down on the sofa or relax with your new book in a deckchair on the lawn.

Our second hand books are one of the most important fundraising avenues at Ormesby Hall, with every pound you spend staying at the Hall to help us revive the garden. We are currently raising money from the books to create a bluebell walk in the woodland, as these delicate blue flowers are sought after by visitors.

The bookshop is situated on the first floor of the servant’s wing, with a smaller selection in the ground floor tea-room corridor. In the bookshop you will find two sofas to relax in as you make your choice, there is everything from bestselling paperback fiction to classic books and suspenseful crime novels. There is an honesty box to pay for your chosen read.

 The second hand bookshop is managed by a team of national trust volunteers who give their time to sort new donations, restock the shelves and organise the books to make it easier for you to find.

We always need more donations, so if you have any books that you would like to donate to us, they would be gratefully received. Please call 01642 328908 to arrange a time to drop off your donated books, thank you.
