Suffolk’s Cozy Bookshops to Visit in Winter
If there’s anything better than curling up with a good book to read – or enjoying one in the comfort of our spacious hot tubs – we don’t want to know about it. Whilst it’s incredibly simple to order one direct to your Kindle or have one arrive in days from the Amazon store, there’s very little romance to be had doing that. Instead, it’s far more enjoyable to roam the rows of cozy bookshops in Suffolk to stumble across popular and lesser known titles. To make sure that you’re well-stocked with books of your choice, we’ve selected a few characteristically cozy bookshops to check out during your stay at our Barns and Barges for rent in Suffolk.
Making this list not simply because it’s on our doorstep, but because it possesses everything you could possibly ask for from a cozy bookshop, Woodbridge Books stocks a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, and even has dedicated quiet nooks should you want to escape the real world for a little while. The perfect place to discover your next favourite book, Woodbridge Books is perfect for stocking up on reading material for your countryside getaway.
Harris & Harris Books:
Opening in Sudbury back in 2010, Harris & Harris Books proudly embraces all the hallmarks of a cozy bookshop. From charming quotations adorning the walls to winding and wonky bookshelves, this place is the very stuff of Christmas films. After stepping inside to escape into another world, this classic bookshop is sure to provide you with everything and more that you could want when finding yourself a new title to discover.
There’s nothing quite like walking into a book shop that is so obviously run by a book lover. This is exactly what you’ll find when stepping inside Barnabees Books in Saxmundham. With an impressive selection of secondhand books reaching the oak beamed rafters, it would actually be quite impressive for anyone not to come away from this bookshop not finding a fantastic book and being convinced of its cozy credentials.
Byron and the Bard:
It would be next to impossible to produce an article on the coziest book shops in Suffolk without giving a mention to a place named “Byron and the Bard”. Named after the most significant writers that Britain has ever produced, this book shop in Lavenham is consistent with the quaint village in which it is situated. Opening only a month ago, exacting attention has been paid to both the selection of books and decor. Certainly, there can be nothing better than being able to say “I went there first!”.
To visit, purchase, and enjoy books from these book shops in true comfort, be sure to take a look at the availability of our Barns and Barges for rent in Suffolk.
