“If you ever wonder where books grow and are harvested, look no further. An entire farm of books.”
Astley Book Farm - Bedworth, Warwickshire
The largest second hand book shop in the Midlands, Astley Book Farm is a beautiful place to get lost in for an afternoon. Cunningly disguised as a group of farm buildings and with sections called the Children’s Hayloft and the Ten Bob Barn don’t expect it to be a quick visit. They have over 75,000 books with a large percentage available to buy online that range from nearly new, to antiquarian and a lot of out of print gems too.
If you get peckish during your visit there’s a lovely little coffee shop on site too that sells rather scrumptious and very reasonably priced cake to nourish your need to peruse just one more shelf of literary delights.
