The Book Fayre is an independent family run bookshop situated in the delightful Edwardian village of Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. We stock a large number of gorgeous gifts and greetings cards. Come in and enjoy a frothy cappuccino with a slice of delicious home-baked cake. Browse our extensive range of Military & Aviation books, and all kinds of new books including the latest fiction and non-fiction. Or take a peek at our extensive children's book section where you can enjoy a cuddle with a fluffy Gruffalo. You will always receive a warm welcome and we are happy to recommend a good read, or to advise on a book for a specific age group or occasion.


At the back of our premises you’ll find an Aladdin’s cave of 2nd hand books – Final Chapter Books. Spend some time browsing through our fiction, thrillers, fantasy, classics, sci-fi and children’s books. Or perhaps you’ll find that elusive old book you’ve been searching for. We have a huge selection of 2nd hand military books and almost every type of non-fiction book subject you can think of.

We believe that to thrive as an independent bookshop in the twenty-first century we need to offer more.


Not only a fantastic selection of books and the friendly and conscientious service that a customer should expect of any quality bookshop, but also it’s essential to share our love of books with our customers in as many different ways as possible.

We have a wide range of gifts, cards and stationery that have been carefully selected from a variety of superior brands.


Many of our gifts are book related – Penguin merchandise, Gruffalo toys, Hungry Caterpillar giftware.  We also stock, amongst other brands, homeware from Sophie Allport, accessories from Santoro’s Gorjuss range and jewellery from Danon.


We are an official Gibson’s games stockist and have a wide variety of their high quality puzzles in stock.

If you believe that happiness
is a cup of coffee, a slice of delicious cake, and a really good book, we can provide all three.


We are prominently situated on the Broadway so you can watch the comings and goings of Woodhall Spa. Whether you fancy a cappuccino or an espresso, green tea or a strong breakfast tea, grab a table inside or out, and watch the world go by.

In our Toy room you’ll find perfect gifts for little people. We have a wide range of toys to suit all ages.
