Discover the charm of your community bookshop
An inclusive space to explore books, make friends and connect with your love of reading.
We are Books on the Hill—a local independent bookshop in the heart of Clevedon’s lively Hill Road community.
We welcome local customers and those just visiting to browse our many books, board games, teas and gifts in-store and provide an easy way to buy books online.
For those that love books as much as us, we also offer monthly subscriptions for adults and children, a personally curated selection of titles sent directly to you, perfect as a gift or a little treat for yourself.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to dyslexic readers and sell a wide range of children’s titles and books for adult readers that we publish through BOTH Press.
We love being in Clevedon and often give our time to help inspire local school children, getting them excited and enthusiastic about reading through different events and author visits.
We also supply books from a wide range of publishers, making sure there is plenty of choice in schools across the curriculum and different ages and reading needs.
