This is a lovely bookshop, with a really nice selection over the two floors. I particularly like the fiction and the children's section, as well as the bargains downstairs. Nicely presented and I always enjoy shopping here.

This bookshop is wonderful and in addition sells little handmade toys as well. The selection is great with childrens books which you don't usually see in the bigger stores.

A lovely little bookshop that makes shopping for presents for children and families easy. All the choices of childrens books seem to be good, there's a wide range, and they're at an excellent price.
