Bonvilston Reading Room: Online Booking

Bonvilston Reading Room was gifted to the village around 1900, by Isabella Mackintosh of Cottrell House.  It was a place where the men of the village could meet and read the daily papers. The main part of the building is timber framed and was originally clad in corrugated sheeting. A kitchen and indoor toilets were added around 1980 and the building underwent a refurbishment in 2006 with the replacement of the corrugated sheeting.
