Betsy's Second-hand Bookshop

Leather bound books on the shelves in a National Trust library

Scotney’s second-hand bookshop is a great spot to pick up a bargain and help support our conservation work.

From the classics, to history, art, modern novels, there are some amazing reads, thanks to generous donations from visitors.

A dedicated team of volunteers are kept busy sorting through the donations and ensuring the shelves are constantly brimming with books.

" We love volunteering in the bookshop - it's fascinating to see the variety of books that people kindly donate.  "
