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  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, Maileg Mouse or Jellycat bunny.

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 shop 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.



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


Our range of cards is the talk of the town.  

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.

Many of our gifts are book related like bookmarks, booklights, keyrings and bookstands

We also stock, amongst other brands, homeware from Sophie Allport, Emma Bridgewater and  East of India.   We also stock a large range of Chilly bottles

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

We have greetings cards for every occasion, but don't expect run of the mill cards... slushy cards are not the order of the day here!
