Aardvark Books

Thousands of books in a charming nineteenth-century barn, surrounded by some of England's most beautiful countryside. Come and browse, and while away a happy hour with people who know and love books.

The Aardvark Café

Enjoy individual, fair trade teas and coffees - from Chinese green tea to Kenyan Blue Mountain coffee, or melting hot chocolate. Fresh, home-made cakes a speciality; soup lunches also available. The perfect counterpoint to a day spent browsing amongst our 50,000 titles.

The Bookburrow

Aardvark's Book and Play Space is a magical kingdom where books mingle with a castle, pirate ship and mystical forest. Expand your children's imagination. Developments coming soon, thanks to support from a James Patterson grant in 2015!
