Hello and welcome to Fred’s Ambleside Bookshop! We are a small, independent bookshop nestled in the heart of the English Lake District. We are often complimented on our diverse range of books and although we can’t stock every title available (we’re only a little shop), we take pride in stocking one of nearly everything rather than keep a 20 strong pile of the latest bestseller. Anything that we don’t stock can usually be obtained from our wholesalers within 24 hours. Our strengths lie in a fantastically comprehensive range of local maps, guides and books, an excellent range of classic and contemporary adult fiction and a superb children’s/teenage book section. We keep up to date with all the new releases and try to mix our selection with a few quirky titles along the way.
