The Granary Bookshop
Located in the Granary within the Stableyard our second hand bookshop is the perfect place to find a treasure.
Within our bookshop you will find plenty of pre-loved books from classic novels to travel compendiums and everything in between. With soft comfy leather chairs to sit in while not drop by on your way to the House and while away some time browsing the shelves for a hidden gem.
The bookshop is run entirely by our volunteer team and the generosity of donations of books. All proceeds from the bookshop go towards our yearly fundraising project. If you would like to donate books to the shop then please drop them in to our visitor reception located within the main car park, no donation is too big or too small and they really do help us to look after this special place.
This year all proceeds from the Granary Bookshop will support our fundraising project which is the conservation and redecoration of the Inner Hall within Stourhead House. Many of the furniture items, mirrors and staircase carpet are in need of repair and conservation. As well as redecorating the Inner Hall, no mean feat when we have to remove all items, put up scaffolding and then carefully repaint all areas taking great care, patience and time. To carry out work on the pier glasses and the tables below them will cost approximately £22,500 alone. We appreciate every book donation given as it really does help us to look after this special place.
