The largest bookshop in the Yorkshire Dales

One of The Guardian's top 10 secondhand bookshops

"Large and excellent bookshop" - Bill Bryson

Convenient for the Lake District and the North West

Westwood Books has a stock of over 70,000 titles - antiquarian, secondhand, and new books (mostly at reduced prices). None of the stock in the shop is for sale on the internet, so it is a book browser's paradise.

Also stocked are book themed gifts, jigsaws, and cards. There is a coffee machine, comfortable sofas, and a customer toilet.

Sedbergh in the Yorkshire Dales

We are in Sedbergh, Cumbria, a small market town in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town nestles among the Howgill Fells, great favourites of Alfred Wainwright.

Sedbergh is on the A684 only 5 miles from Junction 37 of the M6. Easily accessible fom the Lake District, it is only 12 miles from Kendal.

There is parking along the road in front of our shop, and a small car park behind the shop.

If you like to combine book buying with a walk, the Norman motte and bailey castle of Castlehaw is only 5 minutes up the track at the side of our shop, with the open fells of the Howgills only another 10 minutes. Gentler walks near the river Rawthey are only a few minutes away.
