Welcome to The Woodstock Bookshop

The shop opened in May 2008 and is on the main road in Woodstock, just next to the bus stop. We can supply most books to order by the next day and have several thousand books in stock: to order books ring or email the shop. We have a large selection of children's books and are happy to advise and recommend. We can also supply second-hand and out-of-print titles. We offer discounts for school orders and for book clubs and have a free local delivery service.

We were on the regional shortlist for Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2009, 2013 and 2017, and listed in the Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.

are both suspended during the pandemic. We hope to start again as soon as it is safe to do so.

The bookshop started and runs Woodstock Poetry Festival, a completely independent festival that has now been running for 8 years.

The Woodstock Literature Society also holds an excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their website for further details.

Katherine Swift

I know that everyone who came to Katherine's talk last night will want to visit her garden as soon as they can - perhaps when all the roses are out. So here are the details:

The Dower House
Morville Hall
WV16 5NB

The garden is managed on organic principles. It is rich in wildlife, and is a haven for many species of birds. Katherine is also a skilled beekeeper, and visitors can visit the hives. Honey is usually available for purchase during the season, together with an array of jams made from the produce of the garden.The best times to visit are April and May for a stunning display of tulips and other bulbs, June for the roses, July and August for agapanthus and clematis, and September for michaelmas daisies and heritage varieties of apple.

Open Wednesday, Sunday and Bank Holidays 2pm to 6pm. Open for groups by appointment only Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
For further information look at The Dower House

I've just found your website, and mentioned you on my blog - I came into the shop yesterday, and loved your selection and the atmosphere there. And I bought Tell It To A Stranger, one of the Persephone Books, which I'm looking forward to reading!
Just thought I'd let you know I'd linked to this website, and hope you don't mind me using the bookmark picture?
