I love to visit local booksellers. Great selection of books that take place in Cornwall as well as other books. Was impressed with number of signed editions. Quaint, charming store that is lovely to browse in.

Brilliant bookshop, obviously well loved. I found the perfect book for my holiday reading: 'The Travelling Cat Chronicles' by Hiro Arikawa. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Thank you!
