Sleeping with books

Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and surroundings of Gladstone's Library. Our peaceful setting and relaxed atmosphere provide the ideal get away.

The library and grounds will leave you feeling renewed and energised, as well as giving you the freedom to explore our collection of 250,000 items.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are also available in the Food for Thought coffee shop.

There are many places to visit in the area, so you won't be short of things to see and do!

But, don’t take our word for it...

"Great Place to read, write and relax.

An absolutely perfect place for my needs, great library and facilities, comfy bed and room, great food and good conversations with other guests."


"Victorian gem.

I stayed five nights last week with a friend and we were both charmed by it. As a keen Victorian, I was delighted to stay in a John Douglas building brought up to modern standards."
