A little bit about us
Greetings from all @ Fred's bookshop in the heart of the English Lake District.
We are a small independent bookshop, situated in Ambleside and have been trading for over 50 years. We stock an eclectic range of titles, from classics to climbing; geology to theology; walking books to talking books, as well as bestselling novels, current non-fiction, a huge selection of children’s books, and of course local interest and maps.
We offer a very fast ordering service and our friendly and knowledgeable staff love the challenge of tracking down those hard to find titles. Visit us at our website or pop in the shop if you are in the Lake District.
