The spines of antiquarian books at Trelissick bookshop

In the second hand bookshop at Trelissick you'll find a rich array of pre-loved books, all kindly donated to us by the public.

Run by a friendly team of volunteers, the bookshop welcomes all book donations to stock its shelves with. If you have a selection of books that need a new home we will happily take them off your hands.


If you are bringing a large quatity of books, please inform the car park attendant on arrival and they will direct you to our storage facility - there is vechile access to this. Please note that this is not manned every day so deliveries on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday 11am to 4pm or Thursday 11am to 1pm would be hugely appreciated.

If you have a small quantity of books and are happy to bring them to the bookshop yourself, these can be accepted whenever we are open.
