A warm welcome to Book-ish, your friendly independent bookshop, located in Crickhowell, a pretty town 5 miles from Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Our philosophy is simple, we want to connect people to books, help children to develop a life long love of reading and encourage imaginative play. We offer a friendly, quality service and are happy to talk about books all day long....you just try and stop us!

Owned by Emma & Andrew Corfield-Walters, Book-ish offers a professional service, both in store at 23 High Street, Crickhowell and here online.
