    “You’re mad. Bonkers. Off your head...
    but I’ll tell you a secret...
    all of the best people are.”



As the only independent bookshop in Burford we relish being at the heart of the community and having the opportunity to welcome visitors from all over the world.

We all love books and are more than happy to offer recommendations if you ‘need a good read’!
