Aberfeldy Watermill Bookshop, Gallery & Cafe is a three-storey former oatmeal mill in the picturesque Highland Perthshire town of Aberfeldy. The Watermill was opened in 2005 by Michael Palin. In 2009 we were awarded UK Independent Bookshop of the Year and in 2016, included in the New Yorker book of 75 Greatest Bookstores in the World. In 2022 the Bookshop and Cafe featured in National Geographic's top 7 UK bookshops and cafes.

We have a range of titles including fiction, non-fiction, Scottish and local interest, walks and maps, and also a dedicated children’s room. In the café you can enjoy excellent coffee, fine teas and home bakes, or a light menu of local produce with vegan options. Upstairs, the art gallery has a changing programme of exhibitions. Next door is our homeware shop, Homer, which specialises in decorative homeware and exclusive tweed upholstered furniture.
I’m an international novelist, poet, after-dinner speaker, professional joke writer, script-writer, columnist, cruise correspondent, short-story writer, winner of Come Dine With Me – and I pop up on the telly sometimes. I come from Barnsley in South Yorkshire where I’ve lived all my life – apart from four years at University in Exeter doing Drama and Education (St Lukes in case you’re asking) and thirteen years in Haworth in West Yorkshire, where I went hoping to catch some Bronte writing magic. It still remains my second home as I have family there and my eldest is a Haworth boy.
We love all things food and drink, enjoy growing our own vegetables, home brewing and trying to be self sufficient. Our whole life revolves around food, feeding and eating. By day we run our online farm shop, MANSIONFARMSHOP.COM where we butcher, bake, make and delivery a wonderful selection of local food from our farm in the Lincolnshire Wolds. By night, well evening, we love to cook fabulous food, dream up new dishes and feed other people and this is where our supper club evolved from. When we're not working or cooking we love visiting restaurants and dining establishments to sample the cooking of others and expand our knowledge of food. We're also keen travellers, and love experiencing other cultures, which inspires us when we're cooking at home and you'll notice a fusion of multicultural cuisine in our menus.
