About the Bookseller

Ours is a cozy and welcoming shop. Warm and comfortable and friendly. This is a shop that Jane Austen, Dickens, or even Darwin would have enjoyed. We are twenty years old this year. We can be found in central Lyme Regis, in the Town Square, just opposite the Town Clock. There is ample WDDC parking adjacent at 1.60 for two hours. We first opened our doors in August 1997 having moved from South Kensington. We now have ten rooms of books on four floors, a good range of Beryl Cook Cards & Prints, artwork by Hundertwasser, Erte, local artist Brian Matravers. Also Cat Art by Ollie Lett and a good stock from the Belmont Library of John Fowles. We also have a very good stock of quality paperback literature, a downstairs reading room with comfortable armchairs, a cozy fire, a floor of books mostly 1.50 or less, a second bookshop on the ground floor (Lighthouse Books, run by our colleague, Jean Vaupres) and, if desired, some overnight accommodation for book lovers. Take a look at us on, and, or contact us at, because we offer book valuations, and an on-the-spot book search service (or by telephone or email, should you be unable to get to us), all free.
