Sherborne Literary Festival 14th to 18th October

As the official and proud bookseller to the festival we would like to welcome you all to the festival. Winstone's will be selling books at the event and signed copies will be available at the festival bookshop and at the shop after the festival. Look forward to seeing you there.

 Love Books, Love Reading

 Winstone’s is a fabulous light and well laid out independent bookshop based in the beautiful historic town of Sherborne, Dorset. At Winstone’s we are unashamedly passionate about books and reading, we are stuffed to the gills with books stocking over 9,000 titles.

If you can’t find the book you are looking for then we can order any British book in print most titles are delivered to store within 24 hours.


Love Coffee

Visit and relax in our Coffee Shop.

After getting completely wired trying umpteen blends of coffee we are  pleased to offer a delicious Ethiopian fair trade blend which is quite frankly “delicious”. We also serve a range of quality teas and Fentimans cold drinks, the traditional lemonade is particularly good.

For something to nibble on with coffee we are trialing the legendary and local Moores Biscuits, let us know what you think.


Love Cards

Looking for something different?

We carry a unique and broad range of cards, gift and wrapping paper sourced from Museum Galleries and lesser and well known artists plus a range of humour and occasions cards. NEW!! We have just recieved some fantastic cards and notebooks from the Royal Academy featuring work from some of the best artisits in the country.

We are now proud stockists of Fulton Umbrellas featuring designs from Lulu Guiness, William Morris and Fulton's famous Birdcage Umbrella.
