Discovered this lovely shop on a day trip. Very very good selection of secondhand books on the top two floors. Lovely cosy rooms with wooden floors and gently ticking clocks. Could have stayed for a long time but was about to close. Good selection of new books too.

Small and quirky, with vertiginous stairs and clocks ticking away everywhere, this is the most delightful Bookshop. Some of the books are new, most are second hand. We found some real treasures and had a good hour of happy browsing.

Great shop in the heart of Blandford. Lovely selection of books new and old, the shop itself is like walking back in time. Very helpful in here if they don't have it in stock they will try and order it for you.

This bookstore has everything. New books on the first floor and used books on the next two levels. Many selections. Plus comfortable furniture (couches) that I could have just curled up on and took a little nap while reading. I love this place and highly recommend it to anyone who loves books.
