Winstone’s is a community focused indie bookshop in the heart of Sherborne that makes a point of putting its customers above everything else. The result is a beautifully curated bookshop catering perfectly to their clientele. The care continues with their desire to do all that they can to promote the profile of the books they sell through a range of events, their relationship with local schools and of course their team of fiendishly bookish experts.
Specialising in children’s books Winstone’s makes the most of the liberty afforded to independent booksellers to listen to their customers and alter their range accordingly. This flexibility and empathy is what really makes independent booksellers stand out in a market full of homogeneous chain bookshops and it’s what makes Winstone’s an unmissable stop on any trip around Sherbourne.
“We are a community focused independent bookshop trying to raise the level of awareness of reading and books within Sherbourne”
The heart of Sherborne lies in the interesting character in each of it's buildings and the individual characters inside every independent shop and cafe. With the oldest building, The Abbey, dating back as far as AD705, English writers throughout the ages have praised the town's inescapable beauty. Following the footsteps of poets and novelists such as Thomas Hardy and John le Carré, you can still enjoy and discover pockets of architectural beauty from centuries past with a walk through those quaint and rambling streets.
Boasting traditional charm and a friendly village atmosphere, the local independents are a winner when it comes to getting a feel for the Sherborne community.View neighbourhoodView community
