A little bit about us

Independently owned and established since 1992, we stock all kinds of fiction and non-fiction new and second hand, including many local and Welsh books. 

Thank you for shopping with us online - you can also order via email or telephone. By choosing us as your 'favourite shop' on The Hive Network you can shop online and support a real physical bookshop! We hope you will be able to visit us in person as well. Some of our books (particularly Welsh and local books) are more easily available through the shop so please contact us via email or telephone and we will send these out to you or get them ready for you to collect in person.

For expert friendly advice or a good browse please contact or visit us in 'the area's best bookshop' (Rough Guide to Wales). We are situated in the centre of the lively Mid Wales market town of Llanidloes.

Not open on bank holidays.
