About Sharon Narraway

We (David and Sharon Narraway) moved to Winfrith Newburgh in 2006, hoping for a better life in the countryside, we have three children and a friendly dog to complete our family. We have not been disappointed and have never looked back. We instantly fell in love with our house and the picture perfect village of Winfrith Newburgh and its location.

Sharon Narraway purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Sharon Narraway chose Winfrith Newburgh

After visiting other family members in Dorset for many years, we loved it's charm and peacefulness, with a wide range of things to do all year round. We considered it would be nice area to retire to, then thought why wait! We felt Winfrith Newburgh filled all of our requirements, Village shop/Post Office, Train station (Wool) and of course a friendly local pub within walking distance. It is perfect for us. The local people are friendly and helpful and there is always somethings going on in the village hall or church.

What makes this cottage unique

Winfrith Newburgh is a good base for visiting surrounding areas, walking to Winfrith and Tadnoll heaths to spot local wildlife such as deer, rabbits, pheasants and many birds, jotting off to the coast without the use of the car, passing a few pubs on the way, cycling the many Purbeck pathways, horse riding though the beautiful coastal countryside or beaches, easy reach of Monkey World and the Tank museum, many historic town and their daily markets, all surrounding the Jurassic coast, and not forgetting the delights of Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Win Place in April for 3 nights. Booked last minute via ebay and are very pleased we did. Win Place is perfectly situated for all the Dorset attractions and just a short drive (you could walk it but we are lazy) to Lulworth cove. The cottage is perfect for couples, or like us using the 'put up' bed accommodates a child. Our son was extremely pleased with the broadband service as this is apparently extremely important to the kids of today, why communicate with your parents when all your friends are online? beats me? The owners also provide the use of Netflix, which in addition to the freeSat service gives a good selection of viewing options for when you want to slump after a busy days sightseeing. There is also a good selection of books and DVD's as well. We really enjoyed our stay here, being able to bring our dog was great and there is a secure garden area to let them stretch their legs, the property is really well kept and (unlike some rentals we have stayed in) you really wouldn't know that they allowed pets. I can thoroughly recommend Win Place and look forward to being able to come back again for some more exploring :)

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage, home from home, very comfortable, made to feel welcome. Ideal for walks etc. lovely pub just a stones throw away, good food.

As we were staying in February we had the use of the log burner.

Would recommend this place, very peaceful.

The bed was so comfortable that we ordered a mattress for ourselves when we got home. Sharon gave us the web site.
