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.

Clean, comfy property, good location but felt cheated by the ‘garden area’
The property was clean and comfy and the location was good for dog walks but we couldn’t help but feel cheated by the photo of the garden. We first thought that there was a private garden and on arrival it turned out it was a shared garden. We accepted this. A garden area is very important to us to easily let the dogs out into a safe enclosed area.
The shared garden area was nothing like the photo of the ‘riverside view garden area’ as shown in the pictures on the site. The so called shared garden was a shared drive way with the owners property that had a table and 2 chairs stuffed into one corner with a view of the cars!
Cosy and in quiete location
Very clean and well maintained. Everything you could possibly need and a very comfy bed
Thank you Mrs Steer for your review.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
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.
