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 would love you to come and drop into our welcoming and newly renovated bookshop. Our coffee shop is also open again serving cake, teas and coffee.


Hope to see you soon!
