spend time in our cosy coffee shop...


A warm welcome awaits you at our lovely independent bookshop in Cockermouth - a historic market town on the edge of the Lake District National Park, in Cumbria.


The New Bookshop is a popular, friendly place for locals, book-lovers, holiday-makers and people just passing through. We have bravely weathered the rain, shine (and floods!) of Cockermouth Main Street for forty six years!


We are currently in a temporary home over the road at: 15b Main Street, Cockermouth, Cumbria... we will be here for the next few months, while our lovely shop is refitted after the floods in December. We have everything up and running apart from the coffee shop.
