The shop also stocks a great range of gardening gifts, ceramics and sculptures, as well as a wide and varied selection of plants.


You'll find a great selection of traditional toys, gifts and souvenirs for children, from pocket money goodies, to special Christmas or birthday treats.

The second-hand bookshop

Run by a team of volunteers, the second-hand bookshop is stocked with a wide range of books to suit everybody. As opening times vary, to avoid disappointment, please call ahead on 01223 206017 if you wish to visit the bookshop specifically.

When it's closed, there are tables outside stocked with books for you to browse, and you can pay in the shop opposite.
